Asked by Feb 01, 2016 at 08:37 PM about the 2008 GMC Envoy Denali 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2008 gmc envoy denali and last week it
started giving me truble starting . If I wiggle the
keys and turn back and forth it will eventually start.
Is it the ignition switch, like where the key go in

1 Answer


Sounds like your key is a little worn. Do you have a spare key ? You can try and spray some WD40 into ignition switch that may help. If you do not have a spare key may have to replace ignition switch because if you try to make a spare key with the key you have it will only make it the same as the worn key.
