    Hi I’m new here any help is greatly appreciated. I put the steering column from a 1996 Sierra into a 1998 Sierra bolted up fine everything fit. But now I’m having security issues truck starts but won’t keep running. So my question is how do I get around this? Is it possible to over ride the security somehow? Or do I need to get a different column and if so can anyone tell me what Year’s will work? Thanks.

    Did you swap out your key switch into the 96 column? It could be a chipped key its not picking up, or maybe the ignition switch. There is a way to bypass the security using a certain resistor you solder in a wire under the dash, google bypassing gm security for year of truck should find lots of info and vids on how to do it.
