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.

I already erased the codes none of them came back up. The codes that came up someone helped me with it. But here are the codes again The code P1682 ignition switch circuit could have been set from crqnking it without it starting and the battery voltage dropping too low. There is a bulletin for that code setting because of that condition. The P0300 is random missfire the P0443 is evap purge solenoid control circuit. The P0102 is mass air flow sensor performance. The P0102 can be caused by the same reason the P1682 can low battery voltage.I would have the battery tested make sure the alternator is charging properly also make sure the battery cables are clean and tight. Also have a back pressure test done to make sure you dont have a plugged cat. That could set a random missfire code the mass air flow code etc. Thanks.

Thats what I said that you copied and pasted. While the engine is idling try lightly taping on the with a screwdriver handle on the mass air flow sensor see if the engine runs any different from doing that.

Loose connection to the mass air flow sensor or a bad mass air flow sensor. Let me know what you find.

On that not I forgot my next door neighbor was helping me. He pushed on one of the connectors and it snapped in. I dont know the name of it but it finally corrected itself. Tat was when I first started working on it a week ago. Now it is just trying to dye when you touch the gas. Thanks.
