    Often, but not all the time, I have to play with the turner thing to turn it on (ya know, where the key goes). What I mean is, I have to slowly push it in, pull it out, turn, twist, and nearly resort to nuclear warfare to turn my truck on. It's not a major problem, just a major inconvenience.

    Is this some kind of anti-theft system, or is something broken???

    79 K5 Blazer Cheyenne.... That's all I have to say about that.

    I would guess that you are due for the old GM ignition overhaul - a new rack/sector kit (around $14 at the dealer), and a new lock cylinder (anywhere from $10-$30, depending on where you go) If you've never gone into the column before, you can expect to spend the better part of a day changing this stuff out.

    I found it easiest to just replace the whol steering column. I paid $20.00 for the column and it didnt take me long at all to replace it.
