My key will not spring back to the "run" position after my 1999 chevy s10 has started, what do i do?

Asked by Jan 10, 2015 at 06:38 PM about the 1999 Chevrolet S-10 2 Dr STD Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My key cylinder has recently started to stick while turning my truck on. The cylinder also
will not spring back to the "run" position after it has been started so if i don't turn it back it
will burn out my starter. I've replaced the lock cylinder and i've still got the same stuck in
start problem. i was told it was my ignition switch but from my research that only has to do
with electrical systems on it. any advice?

It's the ignition switch. The ignition switch has a spring that pushes the key from start to run. It's worn out or broken.

He is correct and to replace the switch will require the removal of the air bag and the locking plate and the steering wheel. Then split the steering column and the you will have access to the screw that holds the ignition switch key and switch assembly in place.
