key in ignition stopped turning. worked for a few times, then totally stopped. replaced ignition switch..... and starter(I knew this was not it) '89 1500 GMC 8cyl. any thoughts?
Had a man come out and work on it all day. Replaced ignition switch. I knew the starter was not the problem, though he replaced it. I feel it must be a sensor or something electrical...but, I am a lady and do not know these things. I love the old pickup and would like to keep it. Passed inspection last time and is otherwise great.
Does the key turn but nothing happens? If that is the case then then most likely the small gear rack has broke, it is a common problem and the parts are easily obtained.
I'm not sure I understand the problem- does the key turn or not? did the new ignition switch fix the key turnin' problem? one thing that is obvious: the "man who came out and worked on it all day" didn't know what he was doin'- take it to a real mechanic, please-
Thanks to you who answered. Yes, NEW key turns but nothing happens. I will get it towed in to a shop. I appreciate your answers.
