    yes, The switch is the new type and was in the columb. It took the poor mechanic over 6 hrs to install. he found no burnt wires in the harness. The radio is stock . I think it is a fuse but I don't know any other fuse boxes other than under the hood.

    Thank You for your help, However the switch location was indeed in the columb They no longer used the rod type on the 97 and up cars (that would have been too easy) this switch is a square box like with a harness, and fits into the column. the mechanic who changed it out took over 6 hrs to do and had to remove most of the dash to do it.. I will chk the fuse box inside the car.. I don't know if the mechanic did that or not he claims he cked the fuses but It may be the same ones I cked.

    the ignition switch isn't in the steering column. You need to check all the wires inside your steering column for burnt places Have you added a radio or anyother piece of equiptment to your car?

The fuse block is under the dash on the left side just to the right of your emergency brake. you might have to take some plastic off to get to it. I know your key part of the switch is in the steering column but the actual ignition switch is under the dash on top of the steering column . There is a rod that runs from the key part to the switch. But anyway check there and let me know.

The fuse for the radio is in a fuse box under the back seat. I had to replace it this summer.

A./C. doesn't work even with a jumper wire on the low pressure sw


Howdy,
If your AC system is low on Freon, the system goes into a no run mode. If you disconnect your battery for a few minuets the computer resets itself. Then the Freon level can be checked by a friendly shop. Might find it low. Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a 1995 Buick Park Ave Ultra. The car has power but will not turn over. I was told by one shop that it might be the V.A.T.S. system and by another that it is the IGNITION CONTROL MODULE.


Make sure the battery cables are clean and tight on the battery. Check to see if the wires to the starter are tight. Try starting it in neutral to make sure the safety switch is being make. Also hold it up into park and try.
