02 Suburban won't shut off
My wife's truck wouldn't shut off for her yesterday, a couple of times. The keys out, the sis light is on, and my wife had a rotten day.
I think I've read something about this on the site, but I couldn't find it. I'm in class this week and can't check it, so it's off to the shop (her cousin). If anyone has an ideas, and they can't figure it out, let me know.
In the old days, this would have been pretty simple - stupid computers!

Thanks, Uncle Ed, but no auto start.
From what I could gather today during short phone conversations, it's the electrical side of the ignitiion switch - under the dash, rather than where you put the key.
Also, from what I could gather, this has been a problem with other trucks of the era. Has anyone encountered this? How hard is going to be to replace?
I'm hoping I can bribe my way into the cousin's shop, so that I don't spend four hours upside down and in the snow!

A common enough problem. An easy job. Up under the dash and look for the harness/switch assembly.
At least it ain't a Toyda!

Thanks, unplugged! You come through again.
I'll try not to roll the floor mat into the pedal while I'm working;)
