92 Chev Truck



I have a 92 Chev truck that the ignition switch had a problem. The key could not be turned to shut it off. I forced it to turn and then the switch was bad where you did not need a key but still operated the truck. I drove it to work one day and driving down the rode it died as if it was shut off. It will not start and I believe it does not fire. I have jiggled and banged on the ignition switch to see if I can get it to go if it is the switch with no luck.

What things should I try through elimination to get it running again. Computer module, ignition switch, someone said it may have a module or some component in the distibutor that is known to go bad. Just looking for possible things that would cause this. I will have to replace the ignition switch anyway so should I start there? How big of a deal is it to change the ignition switch? Any help would be appreciated.

If the key did not turn than the ignition switch is probably not at fault but possibly the ignition tumbler is. Thats the part that the key goes into. If the correct key is installed the tumbler turns which also turns some linkages which either pushes or pulls a rod that is connected to the ignition switch which is located further down the steering column.

As far as what is wrong you'll need to start with the basics. Does it have fuel? Does it have spark? Your already talking about replacing parts that are not inexpensive. Knowing what your missing will help a lot in what direction we will be able to point you in!!

My Dad had a 92 chevy and his died once on him. I believe it was a module in the distibutor.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!
