I'm sorry but you may broke the clock spring connection from the column to the steering wheel.First make sure all the wire are connected under the dash after you work on ignition switch.
for clock spring disconnect the battery for 10 min.to discharge the SRS system. turn the wheels and steering straight.
remove the airbag and store in safe place
remove the steering wheel
remove column cover
disconnect the clock spring and remove
installation in reverse order
the new clock spring have yellow lock tab. after removing the tab DONOT turn the spring. the wire inside have limit of 2 1/2 turns each way.
The clock does stay on but it should not pull enough draw to drain your battery unless you let it set for long periods of time and I am talking months. There has to be a draw some where else. Like a light or some thing in that nature.
Please ask a local mechanic to have a look as this sort of fault is not uncommon and could be the ignition key chip so try spare key ,a faulty ECU or even something simple like a mass air flow sensor or a blocked catalytic exhaust so its favourite to ask a local man then post what he says for verification
Absolutely. Could also be that the smart key has a dead battery or has been compromised by moisture, etc.
Can you still lock & unlock the car with the smart key? If so, the battery is not dead, and you should look next at the ignition itself. Is there any response when you put the key in? Can you turn it? Are there signs that your battery is drained (dim/no lights work, etc)? If you are getting no response when you put the key in and you can turn it, and it still works to unlock your car and you can verify that you have battery power, start by checking your fuses. The ignition and starter fuses would be the first to check.
The problem is in the starting system circuit. The ignition switch applies a ground to the starter relay (located under the hood near the battery in the fuse/relay box), it, it turn, applies power to the starter solenoid which pushes the starter bendix gear into the ring gear on the engine flywheel. When the bendix gear is fully inserted into the ring gear, the solenoid also makes contact with the battery cable connection (internally in the starter solenoid) and applies battery power to the starter motor, which, in turn cranks the engine. A non-crank condition can be caused by a malfunction in any of these components in the starter system, not to mention a bad ground circuit between the engine and the battery/chassis. Since you didn't mention whether or not there was any 'click' when the ignition switch is turned to the 'start' position, I'd look at that circuit first.
To reset the message displays, turn the ignition switch on. Press and hold the odometer reset button "A" located below the speedometer. Turn off the ignition while holding the button. "OEL" will display on the indicator. Press and hold the lower digital clock reset button "B" until five dashes appear in the display. If needed, press the odometer reset button until "IN 01" appears and then press the clock reset button until five dashes appear. If needed, press the odometer reset button until "IN 02" is displayed and then press the clock reset button until five dashes appear.To exit reset mode, turn the ignition switch on and when "IN 01" appears, turn the ignition switch off.
1. Switch ignition ON. 2. Press and hold odometer reset button below speedometer. 3. Switch ignition OFF and release odometer reset button. OEL will now display. 4. Press and hold the lower digital clock set button or the analog clock set button until five dashes (-----) appear in display. 5. If necessary, pree odometer reset button to proceed to the IN 01 display (15,000 mile maintenence) and reset using the clock button. 6. If necessary, repeat procedure to reset IN 02 (30,000 mile maintenence) display. 7. To end reset mode: switch ignition ON; when display IN 01 appears, switch ignition OFF.
