KEY Stuck...NOT THE SHIFTER
I Just bought a 06 LS for my son that's been pretty meticulously cared for. We have it home 24 hours, and the key suddenly won't come out. Pretty quickly, I find the pin under the column and am able to push the pin, and remove the key just fine. I search online and find the issue with the rod coming out of the shifter, and not activating the microswitch. The rod is in place, and the shifter looks great. manually clicking the microswitch does nothing for actuating the solenoid in the column to remove the key. I would expect to hear the solenoid in the Steering column click, but nothing. The steering wheel doesn't lock, and oddly enough the car won't remotely lock or unlock, or the truck won't release with the remote. They all did when we bought it.....24 hours ago. Has the curse begun??
I know about the recall on the shifter, but don't think that's it. I was able to jump the wires to the switch, to rule the switch out, but it still didn't work. Does this sound like a cylinder/ignition switch issue? The Battery is fully charged, and the car starts, and runs fine with no lights or errors.
I did call the dealer this morning, and all of the recalls have been done...
Trying to track down which of the wires to the microswitch is powered so I can begin chasing this problem. Thoughts?
