If ignition switch then you need the key without it you cannot remove the barrell ,then its a hammer and centre punch to try to remove the retaing headless bolts they break off the head when tightened ,or a small radial cutter if you can get it into the right position on this vehicle

    the ignition switch is bolted to the column. no key needed.

    The ignition tumbler is held in with a button. The key makes it easier to remove the tumbler but the button can be drilled out in about 5 minutes and the tumbler removed from the column housing. There are no security bolts on this vehicle!!!

Where is the ignition module located on 2004 honda civic lx


I searched under 'ignition module' on autozone.com and 'no parts for ignition module' turned up.
I looked under DIS or Distributorless Ignition System and found the coils are inserted in the top of the engine and this tells me that it's likely that the ECM or PCM controls the spark on these cars.

There is a misfire in my engine, changed plugs & wires. now it reads that the fuel leveling sensor is bad, will this help?


If there is a misfire, the cylinder that it is misfiring in will be recorded as a code in the computer.

Have the car scanned to determine which cylinder is bad. Then, replace the coil pack going to that cylinder.
