1995 Chevy Lumina 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
form the last 3 years i've been driving my car with the key broke off in the iginition cylinder with in the last 2 to 3 months I notice I could start the car without putting the restior back in the ignition so I let it go but my brake lights stop working cause of a bad multi fuction switch in the column so I go and take apart the column I get to the iginition I figure I mind as well just replace the ignition so I unscewed the set screw from the cylinder and I pulled it out half way and notice that one of the wires going to the cylinder is bare that the insulation peeled off of it so I put slide it back in and it still starts the car so when I removed it again the wire broke tried putting it back in to start the car now it wont turn over so I go get a new ignition from the dealer, get new key made with the pellet properties same as my old key and the car still wont start. Now the column is back together but I remember when I went to put the set screw in for the ignition there was a white square plug of a type at the end of the cylinder that had two prongs coming out of it that look like the had to touch each other and the was a tab on the other side of it which covered the setscrew I might have pulled that up and out a little bit but im unsure what its for and I did test the resistors in my new key and my old key and the ohm's match and tested the ignition cylinder while trying to start it and the ohm, s stayed the same. If you can give me some advice I will be more than glad to make a donation
