How do i remove the steering column cover to get at the ignition tumbler on a 1993 dodge dakota


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.

NEED TO HOTWIRE A 1983 RAMPAGE


You'll still need to unlock the steering wheel and shift lever. This can only be done with the key or by breaking the collar for the keyswitch. Either it is very difficult, and best left to the hands of a proffesional.

Key lock ignition


Remove the steering column covers and you'll find the electical switch to the ignition. You'll find a rod that activates the switch from the lock and tumbler. Check for anything broken between the two.
