2004 GMC Canyon Ignition Cylinder Replacement Without Key

Asked by Jan 07, 2017 at 06:11 PM about the 2004 GMC Canyon SLE Z71 Crew Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have lost my key on my rebuild that I purchased.  I had key made off of vin
but it does not work.  I want to replace cylinder but do not know how.  Do I
need to remove column cover?  Can I just drill through the key slot and
depress the release ball from below through the column cover?  I live in Alaska
and don't currently have access to a locksmith.  HELP!!

If the key will turn the ignition but not start the vehicle, the new key needs to be programmed to the vehicle. If the new key won't turn the ignition, the ignition lock has been replaced before. Either way you'll have to be towed to the Dealer for programing. HTH. -Jim
