    Default 1995 Tahoe ignition switch issues

    1995 Tahoe ignition switch issues
    1995 Tahoe ignition switch issues

    My daughter called and had trouble turning the key in the ignition, After about 1/2 hour of jiggling the key, trying to tirn the steering wheel back and forth & adjust the tilt up and down the key finally turned.

    The ignition switch was replaced about 4 years ago. The switch was replaced with an OEM GM switch.

    She is using the most often used key - the original OEM. We haven't compared keys yet.

    We might have one that is not as worn if that is possibly the problem

    Any thoughts or ideas?

    Thanks

    Yep that could be it. Lots of times if you just get a new key cut off the old one, it can improve the tumbler rotation. Also if your daughter has 10 lbs of acessories on her key chain like most women do, have her take it off. The extra weight swinging around on the key ruins the tumblers faster
