The ignition in a Chevy Silverado is responsible for allowing the ignition switch to activate. When the ignition dies, you won't be able to start the truck. Replacement ignition modules are available from the Chevy division of General Motors. Generally speaking, you'll need to buy one from a General Motors dealership due to the special circuits inside the ignition and the key that acts as an immobiliser. Once you have a new ignition, you need to remove the old one.
