This is how I removed key cyc. You may have to pull on key cyc at same time. The manual says to us a 90deg pick.


(Image has been resized. Click it for full size.)
Now, did you do it while the key was in the off position or what position? I was told that it matters what position it's in.


Thanks.

Good Point!!! I forgot to mention that (I edited to photo, Hit Refresh to see), YES you need to turn the ignition to START, depress catch (with awl or hex wrench) and release to run.

I had the same exact problem, NO wts light....Just crank, NO start......Once the wts light even just FLASHED on for a 1/8 of a second ......The truck would start right up. Also did you ever experience driving and the truck just turn off?........or driving fine all day then you park and when you come back ......NO wts , NO start. Did the truck ever through any codes?

GMCTD Called my problem from the begining .......GROUNDS....boy was he right.
Also some guys expierenced same problem and a new ignition switch solved it........something about bad contacts, I'm sure you read it..........all the mods and a lot of these guys really know these motors.
thanksfor the GREAT pics

See there folks, you too can do it. Lc is now linked in about 6 different places via the diagnostic checklist and FAQ's. Anyone ever puts together good write ups, can be found in our reference material and stickies. Good work, keep 'em comin'.

Here was the dash light inicators shown as soon as key was turned to run BEFORE and AFTER my "NO Start" condition. Second photo does not show WIF (Water In Fuel) light BUT it did come on at 1st key to run.


And light/ locations from owners manul for a sanity check!
