Trying to remove the wire harness from the brake switch

I'm trying to remove this harness from the switch and it seems like it's lodged. It looks like someone had the same problem and broke some of the connector. I don't want to do the same!

Sometimes they use red locking keys or gray locking keys in the wire harness to keep them from accidently coming apart. Check for any of those. Other than that you may need a small screwdriver and GENTLY pry the clips holding the harness together apart. Thanks for Using Fixya!

How is the nuetral safety switch on a Hyundia Santa fe 06? I believe if I'm facing the car its accessible on the left side. I removed the skid plate but can't locate it.

First we need to make sure that its the neutral safety switch how did you come about that conclusion? Try this next time it will not start shift the gear into neutral and try to start it again if it starts every time you shift to neutral I would say yes start with your neutral safety switch. Your neutral safety switch is incorporated with your transmission range sensor located on the transmission follow the transmission linkage to the transmission there you should find the neutral safety switch usually black in color made of plastic with a wire harness connected to it you could get someone to shift it for you while you look to make sure you are looking at the right part.

Broke a key off in my ignition and can't remove lodged piece. Have replacement but can't turn old ignition to 'acc' to unlock. Are there any other methods for removing/replacing old ignition?

Locksmiths use a tool that resembles a thin piece of a coping saw blade. That tool is slid along side the key stub, turned so that the teeth grip the stub, and pulled outward.

They also use a thing that is like a dental pick, only with a smaller hook.

I've heard of supergluing a toothpick (or the other half of the key) to the stub of the key, but you would have to be very, very careful not to get any glue on anything but the end of the broken piece of the key. You also have to be able to hold it long enough for the glue to set.

I've also read that lubricating the key stub and lock with a lock lubricant helps with extraction, but that would clash with the superglue method.

As far as removing the cylinder, it has to be in the 'ACC' position. The only alternative to this is to remove the entire switch assembly and replace it with a new/used unit. This would mean having to add another key to your keyring(s). I believe that removing the steering wheel is necessary (or very helpful) when replacing the switch on that car.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

My toyota windom 1991 power windows..power seat..central locking..boot release catch and petrol cap release catch are all not working...does someone know what the problem could be please.

  • You need to open up the drivers side door and look at that harness that stretches between the door and the door frame. Inside that harness are the wires for the electronics in the cabin and then some.

  • Over time those wires get pinched and crack and break. So you need to splice the casing open the long ways and inspect the wiring. Your looking for broke, split, rusted, bulging or otherwise negated wiring. The boots on either side may need to come off to look up inside for broke wires as well. Usually it's pretty evident which wires are messed up but sometimes you have to do a little digging.

  • When you find the broke wire[s] splice some new wire[s] in and use electric tape to re-insulate.

  • This is a common problem across the board with many car manufacturers and repairing the harness almost always is the fix in a situation such as yours.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

If a small piece of the ingition key cylinder broke off and is now lodged deep in the key cylinder, how do I remove it for replacement? The key does not completely insert, since the piece is lodged in...

you can remove the lock cylinder and try to knock the piece out. You need to turn the key to the on position and then insert a small pin in the hole on the side of the lock cylinder so you can pull out the lock cylinder. A large paper clip would work.

Turn signal indicator the plastic part on the inside broke switch still wrks is it repairable without taking out the steering wheel?

The Turn Signal Switch is accessed by removing the steering column plastic trim. Just a couple of screws to remove switch and unplug wire harness. Install new one by plugging wire into harness, tight screws and replace plastic trim.H ope this helps!

Where is my regulator wire?

THere would be two wires toi the alternator if it has an internal regulator. One heavy cable to the battery, and a light wire to operate the charge warning light on the dash.

Car will not start

If they took your switch & cut wiring, etc in the steering column, besides the obvious parts you have to get, you should get a column wiring harness. If this happened to me, i would just go to the wrecking yard and have them get me a whole steering column (with key - and the wiring not cut off anywhere) and if you can't change it yourself, it probably won't cost more to change the column than to have someone work on your destroyed one. There should be lots of these things in the wrecking yards as trannys are weak & column shouldn't cost more than $100 (& they have to remove it...) If you find the person that did it, you can always keep your S&W pointed at them while they repair it back to original condition... (just joking)
