500$ for a new ignition cylinder and keys at the stealership for me
01-21-2012, 04:22 AM #22
I to had this $500. quote and it was from a shop foreman that I trusted he told me about the thin wires this was about 8 years ago.
all I did was read up on VATS.for the solution.
I'm sure eventualley these thin wires will fail.
My ? is can I connect these thin wires to a push button under dash hence igintion and just use the lock cylinder as a wheel lock?

There are many very well written articles on the web about VATS and how to bypass or change the ignition cylinder.
I personally hope that this problem will someway become part of this massive recall...but good luck to us with that one. ;-)

Not sure if im.in the righy spot here but my situation is similar and I need some guidance. The problem with my ignition is the actuator rod snapped and the stealer ship wants 1300 dollars to fix it. Part number 26010649 is discontinued so they want to source a used column and pull this 20 dollar part from it and charge a bunch for labor. Is there anyone out there who has one I can purchase or have any info on a repopped unit? I have a black t top 2000 SS with only 66k miles and I would just be tickled to drive her again! Any info would help thanks so much
