Sounds as though you have something stuck in the keyway. You can try taking a coping saw blade, break the end off, and slide it into the keyway with the teeth pointing back at you. It's small enough that it can slide in and grab anything that might be stuck. If that doesn't work, you'll have to remove the lock, and you'll need some professional advice for that one.
Remove the 2 screws holding the plastic housing around the steering wheel. Remove the top part of the housing; pull down the bottom part as it does NOT come off. Set your ignition to the RUN position. Push in the tab on the underside of the lock cylinder and pull out the old cylinder. Get your new cylinder & set it to the RUN position (or at least out of the LOCK position). Slide your new cylinder in the way the old one came out. Make sure it locks in correctly.
remove the rear brakes, then remove the brake line to cylinder. remove the bolt holding cylinder on. then pull out wheel cylinder. to install cylinder, position it in place, put bolt back in cylinder to hold it. hook back up the brake line then put the brake shoes back on. when done bleed the system if need be.
New AnswerUsing your current key, insert it into the ignition & turn the ignition to the "On" position but not the "Start" position. Do not start the truck. Next, using a very small screwdriver (preferably a Phillips head) insert it into the hole located under the ignition key cylinder on the steering column.Pressing upwards with the small screwdriver or nail, you will press in the release button.Firmly grip the key & ignition cylinder while pressing up on this release button & remove while in the "On" position.Insert your new ignition cylinder with the key in it, into the "On" position until it snaps in place. Going in, the release button does not need to be depressed.You now have a Cylinder key, that will not match your door lock keys!Best of luck.
There are two (2) torque screws that hold the cylinder itself onto the car. Remove both and the cylinder should fall out. (this is the hard way) Remove one (1) Torque screw, bottom. Then turn the key to the ON position (not running) and then press the tab that holds the cylinder in and the cylinder itself should fall out. (this is the easy way)
Are you sure the key is inserted in all the way, try it with a different key. Make sure the wheels are not turned either fully to the right or left. You may have to remove the panels around the ignition cylinder to see if anything is restricting the cylinder from turning all the way. I know normally you must put it in the run position in order to be able to remove the cylinder but, have you tried removing it while it was in the locked position. You might be able to press the cylinder lock pin with it in the lock position. It could be that a tumbler has come loose and jammed cylinder.
Insert the key and turn it to the run position. Under the column there is a small hole that you insert a small punch or a pin up into and press a pin on the cylinder to release it from the housing. If the cylinder is siezed and will not turn, then you are in for a real job. You have to drill out the tumblers to get it to turn. You need to somehow turn that cylinder to the run position to get it out.
