How do I replace the ignition on a 1993 Buick regal custom 3.8. There are no keys to the ignition someone walked off with them so I need to replace the ignition


That veicle is equiped with the "saginaw" Delco locking steering column. GM cylinder locks, from the late 60's 7 earlier 70'swere designed with a "pick resistant" locking cylinder. All 6 wafers had to align....simulataineously for a "side bar" to drop into the wafers shaped by the key, for the cylinder to turn. Originally, a dent puller could 'pop"them out, then they were redesigned, with a retaining screw. As these failed frequently, when the spring cover would fallinto the side bar void,& jamb in the running postion, or accesorey (back0 positoin & never move again. As locksmiths were highly trained in this, & did multiple of these repairs a day. They have all the specialized equipment needed to reolace it. (my father-in-law was a locksmith) Spent a lot of nights running service calls, when he & Mother-in-law wanted private time. This would be your chapest solution for a one time deal. The tooling alone would equal near 3x's the cost of the service call.

I have an automatic saab 900s. when starting once you have turned the key and it starts and go to release it it turns off. i have to hold it in the on postion. is this a problem with the ignition switch


There is a lock in the ignition lock cylinder that holds the key in the run position after going to START. The locking mechanism is made of lead which will wear after while creating these problems because of the softness of the metal, but a replacement should last you as long as the original.

Ignition key is stuck in the cylinder


Did u try turning the steering wheel slightly in either direction? The steering wheel can 'jam' causing the key to seem stuck in the ignition. Simply turning the steering wheel a bit relieves the pressure and the key will turn. Let me know if this works for u
