What can you do if the ignition key on 1999 Tahoe is stuck in the on position?
This is a tough fix... and a small star driver (similar to torx) is needed. I managed to find one at a computer store. There are several spring loaded pins in the key mechanism. You have to actually take out the key receptacle. It has been a while since I di this, but I managed to fix it. After removing the key receptacle, one of the pins will be broken. You can remove and discard one or two pins without a problem. Mine worked fine for a few weeks, then locked up again. I called a mobile locksmith to come out. He fixed it and charged me $200.00. Probably less than dealer charge.
To change the crankshaft position sensor of the 1999 Tahoe, you must first disconnect the negative battery ground cable to avoid accidents. Then, remove the wire harness from the sensor, disconnect the wires, and pry out the bolt. Place the new sensor in the same area, replace the bolts, and reconnect the wires. Test the sensor to see if it is working.
It is behind the starter. You will need to remove starter to get to it. I WOULD CHECK TO SEE IF IT IS NOT IN FRONT OF THE OIL PAN 1ST, BOTTOM OF TIMING CHAIN COVER.. MY 1999 CHEVY TAHOE 5.7 IS LOCATED THERE... EVERYONE TOLD ME ALSO THAT IS WAS ABOVE THE STARTER. AND AFTER TAKING IT OUT . IT WAS NOT THERE;...
Why does your 1999 Nissan maxima security light flashes when ignition is offthen goes solid on with ignition on and while crankingand car will not start?
TRY THIS Sit inside the vehicle with all the doors closed. Place ignition in the OFF position. Open the driver's door. Leave Open. Move the mechanical door lever to the LOCK position. Turn the ignition to the RUN position. Aim the transmitter at the Keyless Entry receiver and press Lock button. Hold for five seconds until the door locks cycle. Turn ignition OFF within 20 seconds.
1. Get in your car and shut the door. 2. Put your key in the ignition 3. Turn your ignition key to position 1 4. Push in your Odometer reset button and hold it in, while you are holding it move the ignition key to position 2. 5. After couple of seconds of holding the button down and the key in position 2 your service light will start to blink once that happens let go…
