Question about 1992 Honda Accord
I went toautozone and they said i need a keyswitch diagram and I might have to add fuses and whatnot does anybody have video feed where i can do this?
Hi HeeHee, I wonder if anyone has told you about the steering locking mechanism which also operates with the key? To carry out the job you're asking about disconnect the battery. You would then need to remove the the steering wheel and the cowlings around the column. Next you will need to remove the ignition switch from behind the lock. It's made of plastic and has two machine screws attaching it to the rear of the barrel. Next step is to remove the blind bolts from the saddle holding the lock barrel. to do that you will need to cut slots into the bolts to fit a larger flat screw driver. Once cut, withdraw the bolts. You will then need to remove the locking ****** so there's no danger of the steering locking up while you're driving. the cables that fit onto the ignition switch must then be identified. You can do that job with a volt meter and careful testing. Making sure that the switch is not shorting against anything, connect the battery again. Using a screw driver inserted into the side which fits onto the locking barrel turn the switch on and Identify the constant live cable which has power at all times and whatever the selected position the switch is in. That is the power feed.. Next identify the accessories position and identify the cable which carries power when the switch is turned to that position. Turning the switch one more time will illuminate the instrument panel warning lights. that is the ignition position. The next position is spring loaded and is the connection for the starter solenoid. Mark all relevant operations for the circuits of each cable. (Masking tape serves well) The press button operation will need a bridge from the constant live (which will also need to feed all other circuits, which presumably you will operate with additional switches). If I were you I would have another key cut! Regards John
