Maybe some one here can help with a problem I'm having with my 2002 S10 pickup. When I turn the key to start it I get nothing. Everything lights up when the key is turned on and I'm pretty sure I have a good battery. It has had a problem for some time now where it would do this and all I had to do was jiggle the key and turn the steering wheel or take it out of gear and back in etc. There has been times when I removed the key and the warning beep keeps sounding like I've left the key in etc. I think it is an electrical problem in the steering column / key mechanism.
I was thinking if I can figure out how to jump the starter with the key turned on it should start and hopefully stay running so that I can take it to a shop. Any one know what terminals on the starter to jump together?
I would start with the battery. Pull it and have it load tested at your local auto parts.

I would think the neutral safety switch but even when it starts OK sometimes it acts weird like it thinks the key is still in it when it's not.
Anyway after viewing enough Utube videos I decided I didn't want to mess with it and it just did it again and this time I couldn't get it to start so I had it towed in. I'll update with what they find out.
I hope that got it. Sure sounded like the ignition switch or neutral safety switch. I've had a couple of GM ignition switches go bad over the years. One wouldn't turn on and the other wouldn't turn off.
