Default ignition problem 98 Z71 - 10-23-2009 , 01:20 AM






Someone attempted to steal my truck. They smashed out the steering column
housing and ripped the wires out of the top of the ignition. The ignition
switch itself doesn't appear to be damaged.

After replacing the pulled out wires, it cranks but wont start. I had two
mechanics look at it and they cant figure out why. (Something to do with
the security feature?)

its got 74,000 miles but is remarably well kept with every sceduled dealer
service. The problem is definatley a result of the theft attempt, as Ive
never had any irregular symtoms before this. We also put a code reader on it
and it comes up with nothing

Does the security light come on? Is the Passlock system throwing a code?
There should be three wires to the ignition cylinder. One is for the
Passlock system. Turn the system on and leave it on for 10 minutes. The
security light should stop flashing at this point. The system has now been
reset. If the security light is not flashing, you have other issues.
