Relacing my ignition switch in my C5-HELP!
Has anyone had any experience with replacing the ignition switch in their C5? After a month of trying different things (including replacing the battery; that actually solved my start-up problem for about 2 weeks), I've isolated it to the switch. I've used lithium grease and contact cleaner/spray with moderate, temporary results. The part is only about $75 from GM. Both keys fail to start the car 1 in 5 times. It used to be just three minutes, now its up to multiples of three...
How hard do you think it'd be?
Locksmith to the rescue
I've done dozens, but what makes you think it is the switch (lock & key)? If it fails to turn, that is your culprit. If it turns and doesn't start--the lock & key isn't your problem.
What exact problem are you haveing?
is the car under warranty? i would have it at my dealership until it was resolved. i would guess that you risk having your warranty canceled if things don't go right during the work.
one item that i have seen in the c5 vettes that seems to reak havoc with the electrical systems is water. seems like lots of dampness under the dash from AC condensation, or just plan leaks.
anyway, good luck and let us know how it goes...
I also had the same problem
I had the dealer repair it by replacing a module behind the ignition switch for a mere $319.00. works great.
Holy old thread resurrection!
