Re: How to change inginition?
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.

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.
ask at the dealer i think it may only need a new stop light switch but i could be wrong ,how about leaving the car in neutral ,does key come out then as should do but later cars like this it might not work in neutral though
if u notify dealer with vin number they should be able to cut u a new key --if ur key had a electronic chip in it still would need to notify dealer ----if u want to replace ignition switch the switch runs about $130 if electronic more -then u need to add on the price of installing it $65-75 an hour labor cost-- some not many lock- smiths do automotive ignition keys [non electronic ] from vin number
Replace the ign. lock cylinder. Put old chip key in new cylinder. Plug it in to the connector at bottom of steering column by the dash after removing the wire from old lock cylinder. With duplicate key to turn old cylinder start car. Be sure to clean the battery cables and replace bolts. Hide the new cylinder under dash with chip key in it.
get new cylinder look at it and see the spring loaded tab you need to push in. Now pull the steering wheel column lock plate (gm tool required unless you have super thumbs) pull out key buzzer switch , roll key over to unlock wheel, press the same area on the lock cylinder to release it
