Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Chevy Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is ***** ***** model of chevy is this, and which engine?
ok, these use a pellet in the key for the security, your key should have little black pellet near the base, do you have this on yours?
ok, so you replace the entire column, with a new one, did the new one have the ignitionswitch and key with it?
so you swapped the whole column, it had the key and ignition and all,?
the key pellet sends the resistance to the antitheft module, not the ecm, so the antitheft is not seeing the correct resistance of the pellet, since it is for another vehicle, do you have the old key for the vehicle?
ok, then your onl choice is to go to a dealer and give them the vin number of the vehicle, they can then sell you a blank key with the proper resistance, and you can have the key cut to the new key lock cylinder, then the antitheft module will see the correct resistance and allow the car to start,Tim
