2000 suburban was stolen replaced ignition cylinder it turns over but no start


Do you have a security light lit or flashing on the Instrument cluster ?
The theft deterrent system has been incorporated into the body control module (BCM). The theft deterrent is provided in order to prevent the vehicle operation if the correct key is not used in order to start the vehicle. The ignition key turns the lock cylinder. The cylinder rotation produces an analog voltage code in the passlock?"¢ sensor. This voltage code is received by the BCM. The BCM compares the voltage code to the previousely learned voltage code. If the codes match, a class 2 message is sent from the BCM to the powertrain control module (PCM)/vehicle control module (VCM). The message enables the fuel injectors.
The design of the passlock?"¢ system is to prevent vehicle theft by disabling the engine unless the ignition lock cylinder rotates properly by engaging the correct ignition key. The system is similar in concept to the passkey system. However, the passlock?"¢ system eliminates the need for a key mounted resistor pellet. The components of the passlock?"¢ system are as follows:
?€¢
The ignition lock cylinder


?€¢
The ignition switch


?€¢
The passlock?"¢ sensor


?€¢
The Body control module (BCM)


?€¢
The security telltale


?€¢
The vehicle/powertrain control module (VCM/PCM)


The ignition lock cylinder is located at the upper right side of the steering column. The Passlock?"¢ sensor is in the steering column. The Passlock?"¢ sensor is separate from the key and lock cylinder. The key and the lock cylinder work together in order to determine if the proper ignition key was used to start the vehicle.
In the event of an open Class 2 serial data line between the BCM and the VCM/PCM, the vehicle will become fail-enabled if the VCM/PCM has already received the password from the BCM for that ignition cycle (the engine is running). In this event, the following conditions occur:
?€¢
The security telltale will be ON continuously.


?€¢
The VCM/PCM will become fail-enabled for future ignition cycles.

If a failure in the Class 2 serial data line occurs before the ignition cycle, when the VCM/PCM is not fail-enabled, the following conditions occur:
?€¢
The VCM/PCM will never receive a valid password in order to enable the fuel injectors.


?€¢
The vehicle will not start.


The lock cylinder and the visible key insert portion of the ignition switch are located at the upper right side of the steering column. The electrical switching portion of the assembly is separate from the key and lock cylinder. The electrical switch portion is hidden inside the steering column. The electrical switch portion and the key and lock cylinder synchronize and work in conjunction through the action of the mechanical assembly between the 2 parts.
Passlock?"¢ Sensor
The passlock?"¢ sensor is inside the upper right side of the steering column. The passlock?"¢ sensor contains 2 hall effect sensors. The tamper hall effect sensor is on the top. The security hall effect sensor is under the tamper hall effect sensor. Both of the hall effect sensors monitor the magnet of the lock cylinder through an opening. The tamper hall effect sensor is physically placed on top of the security hall effect sensor. This arrangement enables the tamper hall effect sensor to engage first if an intruder attempts to bypass the passlock?"¢ sensor by placing a large magnet around that area of the steering column. There is a tamper resistor inside the passlock?"¢ sensor in order to help prevent tamper to the system. Passlock?"¢ equipped vehicles have a selection of 10 different security resistors ranging from 0.5K ohms up to 13.6K ohms. Installing one of the security resistors inside the passlock?"¢ sensor will generate a unique passlock?"¢ code. All 10 combinations of the passlock?"¢ sensor have the same part number. However, you cannot simply replace the passlock?"¢ sensor and expect the system to operate properly. Always start by performing the Diagnostic System Check first and following the instructions.
SECURITY Telltale
The SECURITY telltale appears on the message center inside the instrument cluster. If the SECURITY telltale flashes or if the SECURITY telltale lights continuously during the vehicle operation, refer to the system diagnosis.
Fuel Lockout Cycle
The Passlock?"¢ system has a lockout cycle of approximately 10 minutes. Once the vehicle is in the lockout cycle, the vehicle remains in the lockout cycle for 10 minutes, even if the ignition switch is turned from the RUN position to the OFF position.
The Passlock?"¢ system uses the lockout cycle in order to synchronize all of the Passlock?"¢ components when any Passlock?"¢ related part is changed. The Passlock?"¢ system requires 3 consecutive lockout cycles in order to complete the 30 minute learn procedure for a changed component.

How to remove the clutch pedal ignition lock switch from a ford ranger edge 2004? The back end of the rod that go towards the engine is giving me the most trouble removing.


1 Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery using a 1/2-inch wrench. The battery in the 1995 Mustang is located on the driver-side of the engine compartment behind the headlight assembly. Wait 15 minutes to allow the residual charge in the air bag system to discharge and the air bag system to be disabled. This will prevent accidental deployment of the air bags.

2 Remove the steering column trim cover screws, located on the bottom of the steering column cover behind the steering wheel, using a screwdriver. Lower the tilt steering wheel fully. Unsnap the two halves of the trim cover from each other and remove them.

3 Turn the ignition key to the run position. Insert a 1/8-inch punch into the small retaining pin hole, located below the lock cylinder housing, and depress the retaining pin. Slide the old cylinder out of the housing.

4 Turn the key to the run position in the new ignition lock and insert the new ignition lock into the housing. Turn the key to the off position to lock the new cylinder into the housing. Turn the ignition key to the off position and pull on the ignition lock to verify it is securely installed. Reinstall the steering column trim covers. Reconnect the battery and tighten the cable clamp bolt securely.

Remove ignition lock to switch link 1995 suburban


The ignition lock assembly contains two components: a lock cylinder to deter theft and an electrical portion that supplies power to electrical components such as the radio, electric windows, and windshield wipers. The electrical portion of the ignition switch also provides power to the starter motor to start the engine.
The ignition lock is an anti-theft device that prevents a vehicle from being driven unless the ignition key is in the ignition switch. If the ignition key is not in the ignition switch, it 's impossible to turn the steering wheel.
To replace the ignition switch cylinder lock, the trim panels around the steering wheel are removed. Then the tamper-proof hardware that attaches the ignition lock assembly to the steering column is removed. The ignition lock assembly is removed from the steering column, and the lock cylinder is replaced. The new ignition lock is reattached to the steering column, and the trim panels are replaced.make sure you dissconect battery first the 1997 had a recall on the ignition switch dont no if the 1995 had a recall if so they will replace for free

I have a 1997 chevrolet monte carlo sombody broke the steering colum i got one from the recking yard and it still doesnt turn on.can sombody tell me or give me in idea to start the car because i already...


you should have checked the alternator and the battery before you did that. my 03 montecarlo has the idnition on the dash above the radio but i'm thinking yours may have it in the steering column. check the ignition mechanism and for any stripped or broken wires
