Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is ***** ***** you done a relearn on the key yet?
ok, what procedure did you use to relearn it?
does the security light go off, after about 10 minutes when doing the procedure?
ok,what was the original problem with the lock cylinder, why did you replace it?
ok, so this problem was there before you did the lock cylinder, the key not turning all the way off? but with the new cylinder the light is always on, correct?
are you still here?
ok, so I think you either got a bad cylinder, or the switch in your shifter is bad, the switch in the shifter sends power to the solenoid in the dash, to unlock it and let the cylinder rotate to the off position, have tried holding the shifter hard toward the park, and seeing if the cylinder turns all the way back?
you cant do the relearn until you get the cylinder to go into the off position, the procedure is to stat in the off position, then try to start it and let the cylinder go back to the run position, then observe the light for about 10 minutes, until it shuts off, then turn the ignition offf, so if the cylinder is not going back to off, it wont complete the relearn, if the new cylinder does the same thing, then you will have to check the wires at the shifter, the pink wire should have power at all times, and then when in park, the white wire has to have power, if th white wire does not have power when in park, then you will need to replace the switch,Tim
Please dont forget to rate me , as this is the only way I get credit for helping, you can always return to this question and ask follow up questions at no charge,Thanks,Tim
dDid you replace he lock cylinder again?
Hello I am Reggie and i believe i know where your problem is your gear shifter if it does not engage all the way in park you want be able to turn key off and remove you even think heck the shifter looks like it is in park but pull up the console and it will almost be drinks and liquids get spilled there and want allow that solenoid to close all the way next when you replaced the passlock cylinder did you replace the small 3 wire connector that it plugs into? If not do so now. the tension with the terminals is big problem
