IGNITION SWITCH

2006 Chevrolet SSR • 100,000 miles

My dads ignition switch went on his 2006 chevy ssr. It was still under warrenty when they replaced it. I got a feeling it went again because it won't start. Battery is good and it is showing good voltage on the gauges. How do you replace the ignition switch on the ssr. If so could you tell me step by step on how to replace it. Also if you have pictures that would be helpfull to. Thanks for your help.

Ok great I want to make sure that it is the throttle body first then I will write you back and let you know. That is the lowest Price that I have seen Thanks. If I put it in and the idel is high how do I make it relearn the throttle. Thanks.

I am not sure what is up with this truck I started it this morning after I put the battery back in. The truck runs normal. I took it for a 20 minute drive shut it off and I have started it 3 other times today. Any suggestions. If I find that the throttle body is bad I will order it from rock auto. Thanks for your time and help.

You will just have to play it by ear and see if it acts up and go from there.

Ok so I cleaned out the airfilter and some other things The truck idels at 500 rpm which is good. Before I did that it was almost 750- 1000rpm. Before I cleaned the filter out when you started the truck and hit the gas it acts like it wants to die. It still does it after I cleaned everything out. Does this mean that the throttle body may be bad. Thanks.

500 rpms is a little low for a idle speed. Do you have a K and N air filter?

Before you cleaned the air filter and did the other things you never mentioned how did it run?

It ran but it ran heavy. Now it runs smooth. But when you step on the gas and raise the rpms it sounds like it wants to choke.
