What you need to do is this:

Remove Steering wheel
Remove big connector under dash, it has a 8mm bolt that is holding it in, this will loosen up the wires in the steering column
Pull out clock spring and let it hang
Get lock plate compressor and remove lock plate, the snap ring is kinda hard to get off
Remove plates and spring behind lock plate
Put turn signal switch to the turn right position
remove three screws holding in turn signal cam
remove key warning buzzer, needle nose pliers and it just pulls out, be gentle
remove screw with a torx head that holds the ignition tumbler in place

My 1988 Buick LeSabre runs great ! Now the key will not turn off. The key is in the on position. I removed the battery cable to turn the car off. now how do I fix the ignition?


You need to replace the ignition tumbler, which is the piece the key goes in. You have to remove the steering wheel, lock plate, turn signal switch, and the key in buzzer contact. This contact piece will be very difficult to remove because the key actually gets in the way internally. This piece is a yellowish square plastic piece with two copper contact straps protruding from it. Beneath this piece is a t20 torx screw/pin. Remove this screw/pin and the tumbler slides right out. Install in reverse order.

Replaced the ignition key switch and now my steering wheel clicks when i turn it what do i do


I've seen the plastic covers not go together correctly and rub the steering wheel. try removing the Key and tumbler and turn the steering wheel. Is the noise gone? Sometimes the new tumbler will not pull back the steering wheel lock enough and it will rub alittle. Check the steering wheel lock to see if it's pulling all the way away from the steering wheel.

Key stuck in ignition -- cannot turn on or off. Can an ignition switch cause the tumbler to lock up? Or does the ignition tumbler need to be replaced? If the ignition tumbler needs to be replaced, how...


lets start simple.get a can of silacone spray oil and spray into the switch and keep moving key and you will find this will reliese the key,if you need to remove the ign switch dont panic as its a simple enough job.Forget about steering wheel and whatever,simply remove the outer plastic cover then this exposes the switch at the back of switch is a plug with wires pull it away ,then below the key you should see a tiny screw undo, and make sure the steering lock is not under pressure,ie steering wheel free,when trying to remove switch move steering wheel back/forward and switch should pull out.good luck.adrian,,,,

Need special tool for 1993 Buick Regal


you will need a lock plate tool once you have taken the lock plate off you need to take the three screws out of the turn signal switch and unscrew the turn signal handle. when you have done this do not pull it out yet. you need to go under the dash and look for the group of wires that run up your steering column. you'll have to unplug them to get enough wire to lift the turn signal switch out. Do not pull these wires all the way out just enough to lay the thing out of the way. Ok once thats done right above the ignition tumblers is either a screw or a tiny indent hole you will have to knock open hopefully its just a screw that just holds it in.
Ok thats enough for now

One other thing the emergency flasher switch has one screw in the middle just unscrew it

Ignition switch


The ignition switch or the ignition tumbler? They are two different things. The tumbler is where you put the key, and the ignition switch is bolted to the bottom of the steering column.

If you are talking about replacing the ignition switch and your truck is equipped with an airbag (in 1995 Chevy trucks had them as standard equipment) you should probably go to an expert for this question. I would take the time to visit the local dealership and just find a mechanic and speak with him for a few minutes, chances are he'd help out.

Usually with airbag situations you are suppose to unplug the battery from the system and then wait xx minutes (I've heard from 15 to 60 minutes) in order to wait for the airbag electronic system to lose power, causing potential accidental deployment.
