1996 Chevy Silverado V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles
I just changed the ignition switch on my truck. When I first went to start it, it seemed like it didnt want to engage the starter (by engage I mean the yellow wire that goes to the starter is not getting hot), although it did. There would always be just a slight pause that seemed odd, but I just kind of ignored it. THe problem got a little worse and sometime it wouldn't engage the starter at all, but if I turned the key off and back on it would work. Now it is not working at all. If I run a jumper wire from one of the hot wires on the ignition switch to the yellow one it fires right up. I took the ignition switch off and turned the switch manually with a screwdriver and it fires up. The actuating rod seems to be turning fine when I turn the key and doesn't seem to have any play. I think it got to be either a bad ignition switch or the actuating rod is bad. Any advice?
have the same problem?
