Re: Trying to remove the wire harness from the brake...
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!

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.
sound like you might need to change the key switch .could be that plunger rod from switch to ignition switch may be lose. Best way to determine the problem is to take it apart and take a look. had the same problem and mine was the key switch.... hope this helps and good luck...
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.
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.

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.
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!
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)
I have seen this before if someone has worked on the car the main harness that goes into steering column is loose or not snapped in all the way remove lower panel under steering column and possibly bezel around column then insure all harnesses are plugged in tight you can run car as you wiggle these harnesses to find the culprit
