Something is wrong in the steering column. Take it to an auto trim shop. It's probably your ignition key cylinder that's bad. This happened to my '89 last summer... it stuck in the "On" or "Run" position one day, and it's still there! The proper way to fix this is to replace the cyliner, or any other parts in the steering column that may also cause, or contribute, to your problem. However, doing so, in my opinion, is fairly difficult, and you really should have some special tools, although there are ways around that too, but let's not go there. I decided to fix my '89 w/parts I already had (I was broke!), and spliced right into the wiring under the dash, in lieu of taking the whole steering column apart... and it's working great! I took a toggle switch & wired it to the accessories, basically everything that turns on when you move your key to the "On (run)" position. Then I wired a pushbutton to the starter relay. Now I have one less key to lose!! I still lock & unlock my doors like normal, so what's the difference. Plus, if your creative, you can hide the switch & button so nobody but you will know how to start your truck. I do need to caution you... you have to have a good understanding of your vehicle's electrical system or you'll make things worse. Another caution... the easiest, fastest way for me to do this resulted in bypassing the clutch safety switch (mine's a 5-speed manual), as well as the nice "dings" that sounded when I left my headlights on. The clutch wasn't a big deal, since I was used to pushing it in to start the truck anyway. But I've had my truck (& my heart!) "jump" a few times when starting. And after having to ask co-workers for jump starts about a dozen times or so after work, I'm now in the habit of checking my headlights everytime I shutoff my truck (day or night!). If you have the finances, and your truck is worth spending the money on, I suggest taking your truck to a dealer or mechanic & get it fixed correctly. But I sure had fun!!
you might need a new ignition
there is no Chevy town and country. its a Chrysler.
Turn it, then pull up and out.
Probably a bad ignition switch.
Could be your fuel pump or your ignition. Check your fuel line and crank the engine. If fuel comes out, check the ignition.
With the ignition off set the park brake then turn the truck on and the light will be off
turn key to acc then stick a paper clip in the little hole in tumbler then turn counter clock wise there you go
insert ignition key into passenger airbag slot on the front dash and turn to off
ignition switch wired wrong . wire from coil hooked to hot post instead of switched post
cant turn the key ignition on my 1996 aerostar ford
U have to pull the steering wheel and the turn signal mechanism behind it. Once that's outa the way you will find one screw that most be removed then the ignition will slide right out.
my first thought would be to check the starter . if you can tap on the starter and it starts after that..you have a bad starter .
You can only do this in park ... Turn off your truck ,apply the parking brake and turn your truck back on .
Well sometimes the radio is hooked up to the ignition itself. It is just the ignition wire, if it has a disconnecting face plate then you can turn it off by taking the face plate off. Or if you would like, you can pull the radio out and disconnect the wire from the ignition and it will not still be on when you cut the truck off.
This could be a bad ignition switch, ignition relay, or ignition fuse.
Change the ignition. Take a pare of pliers, turn it back, then change the ignition.
i think you have to push in the tripometer turn on ignition and then wait second, turn off the ignition and turn back on i did it once but cant remember all of it
put the key in the hole and turn
You need to turn the wheel (about 1/4 inch) to relieve the pressure while you turn the ignition.
Your truck will not turn over when the key is turned if the battery is dead, the ignition switch has failed, or the starter is bad. All can be readily repaired at a local mechanic or dealership.
Slightly turn the steering wheel and it should let you turn the key to on position
Go to dealer, expensive, have to get one through them so key is the same as the original so you don't need two keys, door/ ignition. Tear apart steering column.
