you do not have to remove the steering wheel. there are 2 or 3 screws under he column then the shroud comes off then the switch is on the left side you will need to remove one small tamper proof torques screw(the star bit with the whole in the center) note there is more then one screw there but only one holds it to the column then pop the switch off, you have to pull and wiggle it to get it loose.

the mechanic should check the ignition switch,the wires, the fuses, the ignition assembly ,the rotor coil, the starter solenoid and the connection of the ignition switch to the battery . If there is a worn out or destroyed spare parts then repair or replace them .the wires , if there are loose wires or worn out wires reconnect them or replace them.the fuses if there are worn out or destroyed fuses then replace them also.These are the causes of electrical problem of truck .If these said spare parts are being checked or replace then the car problem can be solved. the truck won't start because of some electrical problem not being seen . to be checked.And don't forget the connection of the battery to the ignition system . if there is a wire loose then re connect if worn out then replace.

CAUTION Disconnect and isolate the negative (ground) battery cable. This will disable the air bag system. Failure to disconnect the battery could result in accidental deployment and possible personal injury. Allow the system capacitor to discharge for two minutes then begin air bag system component removal. To install:

  1. Engage the electrical connectors to the ignition switch and make sure the switch locking tabs are fully seated.
  2. Before attaching the ignition switch to a tilt steering column, the transmission shifter must be in the PARK position. Also the park lock dowel pin and the column lock flag must be properly indexed before installing the switch as follows:
    1. Place the transmission shifter in the PARK position
    2. Place the ignition switch in the LOCK position. The switch is in the lock position when the column lock flag is parallel to the ignition switch terminals.
    3. Position the ignition switch park lock dowel pin so it will engage the steering column park lock slider linkage.
    4. Apply a light coating of grease to the column lock flag and the park lock dowel pin.
  3. Place the ignition switch against the lock housing opening on the steering column. Ensure that the ignition switch park lock dowel pin enters the slot in the park lock slider linkage in the steering column.
  4. Install the retaining bracket and ignition switch mounting screws, then tighten the screws to 22-30 inch lbs. (3-4 Nm).
  5. If the vehicle is equipped with a tilt steering column, install the tilt lever.
  6. With the key cylinder and the ignition switch in the LOCK position, insert the key cylinder into the ignition switch until it bottoms.
  7. Insert the ignition key into the lock cylinder. While pushing the key cylinder in toward the ignition switch, rotate the ignition key until the end of travel.
  8. Install the retaining screw into the bracket and lock cylinder. Tighten the screw to 22-30 inch lbs. (3-4 Nm).
  9. Install the steering column covers, then the tilt lever, if equipped.
  10. Connect the negative battery cable.
  11. Check for proper operation.

How do you change the ignition lock cylinder on a 1990 dodge dakota?


I just recently had to replace the ignition lock cylinder on a 1990 Dodge Dakota. If yours is anything like mine the ignition lock cylinder you need is for a 1989 Dodge Dakota. All you have to do to replace it is remove the center of the steering wheel and the steering wheel. Next you will have to remove the lock plate. After you do that you should be able to pull everything else out of the way. Then all you have to do is take a flathead screw driver and pop the old ignition out. You will need a steering wheel puller and a steering wheel lock plate remover. The best thing to do with the lock cylinder is to go to autozone or whatever store you use and match it up. Good luck

The only window that will go up or down on my 2002 dodge dakota is the driver's door window. Neither the drivers door up/down switch or the switches on the other doors will make the window go up or down.


Your driver's door switch is the only thing all those windows have in common. They are all wired to that switch. It is probably time for a new master switch for your driver door. If you remove it and there aren't any broken wires or bad connecttions. It's time for a new one.
