If you have an original replacement key assembly, then all you have to do is remove the old key assembly, transfer the rear electrical ignition switch to the new key assembly and your done.

no need to transfer or solder any wire. if you have a replacement part which is not an original, then it would be very difficult to trace the wires unless you have a knowledge in voltage testing and using a volt meter.

tnx 4 using fixya,

1998 Chevrolet Cavalier Factory Imobilizer (Starts and runs for a few seconds, then dies.)

You must know the resistance value of the old key to make this work, without that info you can't get a new key cut, the resistor was the chip at the base of the key shank. So you are kinda stuck here, the only thing to do is find out if you can buy the VATS module out of the truck the column came from, you module needs to see a proper key resistance signal a certain resistance which was of course the one you lost. Only had one key to the truck?? wow that was a mistake. I lost a key once but luckily it had no anti theft system and a new lock fixed it, after that I have three keys for each of my 4 cars.

How to change the key inginition switch on a 94 chevy caprice

Hi, your ignition switch is mounted to the steering column just below the knee bolster by 2 5/16in bolts. First remove the 2 connectors from the switch, then the bolts. The actuating rod is slid into the side of the switch and extends up the column to the lever of the key barrel. Carefully pull the rod from the side of the switch. Slide the actuating rod into the new switch and bolt it on, then plug in the connectors. I have pasted a picture of the switch below. Please let me know if you have more questions.

My key is locked in the ignition and won't turn. Have moved the sterring wheel but still can't start vehicle

Toyota trucks are nortorious with ingnition problems,spay some wd-40 in the key hole as best you can and move key up and down in rocking motion and turn wheel back and forth as you do this and hopfuly it will turn. if it dont than get the whole ingintion out and try to buy a new one, Ebay perhaps might have one more reasonable for price.
