remove the steering wheel . you might need a puller to pull it loose after you loosen the nut .. after you get it off look down in there and there is a small bolt that holds the switch in the column use a small light and you will see how it is held in there. some have a clip to pull too.. then out comes the switch .. thanks and holler if you need more. jerry

>>>>FIRST disable the air bag system
You'll need to remove the upper and lower steering column covers.
Also all the trim under the drivers side, kneee bolster, etc...
The ignition switch has 2 screws holding it on.
Remove those screws and all related wiring harness.
Then the switch.
Here is the procedure from GM......
Place the multifunction lever in the center or the OFF position.
Caution: Unless directed otherwise, the ignition and start switch must be in the OFF or LOCK position, and all electrical loads must be OFF before servicing any electrical component. Disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent an electrical spark should a tool or equipment come in contact with an exposed electrical terminal. Failure to follow these precautions may result in personal injury and/or damage to the vehicle or its components.
Disconnect the battery negative cable.
Disable the SIR system.
Remove the steering wheel inflator module.
Remove the horn plunger contact.
Remove the steering wheel.
Remove the tilt wheel lever.
Remove the ignition lock cylinder. Remove the upper steering column trim cover.
Couldnt find a diagram. Hope this helps.

Hello Steve...The lock cylinder will come out if you can turn the ignition switch. You have to remove the bezel around the steering colunm, the plastic trim behind the steering wheel. There is a small hole on top of the ignition lock housing, you need to turn the ignition to the run position, move the shifter to drive(so the starter does not enegage) use a small pick to push in the small hole and turn the ignition to the start position. The lock cylinder should now slide out.
I will post a schematic.
You do not need to remove the steering wheel.
Happy Holidays...good luck, i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

yeah it could be. It can also be the relay.
I would have done this to trace the problem.
1.) connect a wire from the positive battery terminal directly to the fuel pump. (REMOVE FROM TANK AND DRY OFF FUEL FIRST) the pump should turn on if not check the grounding!! (that could be the problem)
2.) if the pump works itd then connect the wire to the one that comes of the relay. If it works check the com wire that triggers the relay. of not then trace that wire from the relay to the pump.
3.) connect it to the wire that comes of the ignition switch to the replay. It should start pumping if not. check fuse. If it works check switch.
Careful with doing this. i normally attach a 10 amp fuse to the wire to be on the safe side. i also remove the fuel and open that gas lid, remove the pump and work with the pump outside the tank to avoid spark(if any) setting the fuel on fire.

Testimonial: "did all this already ."
The ignition switch could be the culprit. It's located on the lower half of the column, on top of it. Remove the plug, the two screws that hold it on, and lift it off the actuator rod that runs up to the key cylinder. It's about $30.00 new and takes about 10 minutes.
Or you could bypass the problem.
