    Default 1996 chevy 2500

    My key would not turn to start truck....tried everything. I bought a new tumbler but could not turn key to remove old one. Drilled out keys and removed. I then realized if I put the new one in I would have same problem. How do I repair this ? Can I disengage steertng wheel lock or what? Never had this problem gefore.

    Hi rock622,

    If you would have the same problem when you put the new one in, then there's something wrong in the steering column. Can you turn the shaft that the lock cylinder turns with a pair of pliers?
