Important Notes Before Buying
Please consult the compatibility chart including any notes pertaining to your vehicle.
Please read the entire description including shipping & return sections. If the description OR picture does not seem correct....then please ask questions before buying.
This listing is for one (1) Strattec brand GM ignition lock cylinder with 2 GM logo keys. This lock is already assembled...just as pictured and described.
To figure out if this is correct for your 97, check the wire on your old lock....it should be about 16 inches long and has large clip like in this picture. If your 97 model lock has a short wire and a smaller clip...then this lock is NOT correct.
This ignition lock cylinder is for vehicles with AUTOMATIC transmission. Vehicles with manual transmission will take a different cylinder, which has a push-button on the face of it.
The ignition lock cylinder is the PASSLOCK type. The keys are NOT electronic in any way, but the lock cylinder has a small magnet in it that interacts with a sensor located inside the outer lock housing.
Installing this lock requires reprogramming of the PASSLOCK system. We can provide a copy of the programming procedure, but the programming is then entirely up to you the customer...we do not provide any troubleshooting technical support. If all aspects of your car's main systems are in good working order, then programming of the PASSLOCK is not usually a problem.
If you have questions, please ask BEFORE buying....include the exact year, make, and model.
