Question about 2001 Chevrolet S-10

1 Answer

Key will only turn after a lot of jiggling.

I have a Chevy S-10 and just recently when i put the key in it will not turn without a lot of playing with it. No problems starting once it turns but sometimes takes up to 15 min.

2005 chevy malibu classic.... theft warning light coming on and not allowing car to start..... best solution?


Let the car sit undisturbed for 10 - 15 minutes, then try to start it. Check the owners manual if you have it. Sometimes, on various cars letting them sit awhile will allow the system to reset itself. On others sometimes rapidly turning the key from off to on, without turning to start 3 to 8 times within 10 seconds and then on the last turn to the on position leave it there until the horn chirps, at that point turn the key directly to start, or turn off first and turn to start. If all this fails, a GM dealer can reset the system.

my uncle had an older chevy pickup once that had a simaller problem. with his it would start and drive fine but once it was warmed up and shut off it would not start again untill it cooled down again. his problem turned out to be a loose wire on the bottom of the block that coneccted to the starter i beleive so check that before buying a new starter because from the sound of it you may have the same issue caused by the degreaser

02 malibu won't start


If car won;t start, but turns over it may be the anti theft system. Follow the directions in the manual-turn the key on and leave it for ten minutes or until the anti theft light goes out. Turn the ignition OFF and then restart the engine. If you continue to have problems with the anti theft system, disconnect the battery for 4 or 5 minutes and then reconnect. It seems to reset the system. Found this out after a mech. had worked on the system, disconnected the battery and told me it would be 400 to 500 to replace the module. Said no thanks and drove off to never have the problem again (so far!) 10,000 mile since.

1999 Chevy S-10, how can I bypass the Security Fuel shut off sytem?


the way that i was told how to do a quick fix for is to hold the key in the electrical start and the actual start up of the engine and hold it there tell the security light is solid and then turn off the truck then bring it back to that point and let it blink until it turns off then you can start the truck.

If the light has not stop blinking when you wait ten minutes then it is not going to crank. My does it a lot but after 10 minutes the light has stopped blinking. I think that the ignition switch needs replacing or maybe just the key is worn out. I think when anybody goes to fix this GM problem it is a guessing game.
