Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 2 months ago

lube up the key hole with WD40 or something close to that work the key in and out hard of it still will turn with the key all the way in strike the back side of the key with a hammer a few times with a hammer as you are trying to turn it and see if it will turn

if it turns and starts then have the ignition lock cylinder changed

if it will not turn no matter what have a lock smith come out and replace the key and tublers

what ?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I paid $5 to find out how to hotwire this thing. No matter, I figured it out. There's a cable that runs from the ignition to the shifter and it couldn't be depressed by the shifter cuz its tip broke off so I pushed it with a screw and voila, key could turn
Maybe it's odd but now you know it for next time

I googled how to hotwire my yukon and this chat popped up..... offered to give me answer for $5......well okay, figured quicker than watching YouTube since I was stranded......but there was no help to hotwire, and was told to get new ignition. NO HELP......upon further inspection i found the cable that runs from ignition to shifter was not able to depress because its tip broke off.....so used a screw and key was able to turn on vehicleWould appreciate refund
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 2 months ago
