Question about Buick Regal
I been looking all over the column steering wheel and i can't fund the swtch
Don't believe it's there. You have a buick? You must have an automatic? lThe park/neutral safety switch is usually in or on the transmission, and the wiring for it is usually ran through the electrical connector for the transmission. You would probably need a shop to test it, as they would know where and which wires to check. Likely two wires which would have continuity in park or neutral, and no continuity in other gears.
If you want to test it you would need a wiring diagram for your car-good luck.

SOURCE: clicking in steering column
Check the lower steering column universal joint coupling needle rollers !
Open the hood, and get someone to wiggle the steering wheel, and using a good torch, check the lower steering column joint, for any free play, or if you can hear or feel, the clicking, and check all the clamp bolts and nuts.
A FixYa rating is appreciated ....Thank you !

Don't remove the lock cylinder! just break out the small plastic insert inside the upper panel where it slides over the lock cylinder and once its together you will be happy with the ease of installation and the ignition where the key goes in covers up the whole where that little bit of plastic once was

It may be the 'actuator'. It is a rod that connects the lock cylinder to the ignition switch on the tilt wheel units. It is made of aluminum and often breaks as things become worn.

This problem is very common, your best bet is to go to the nearest junk yard and look for a new column. The amount of work needed to try to get into that u joint isn't worth it and matching up the u joint at your local parts store can be a nightmare. Swapping out the column is a twenty minute job. I grabbed a column from a GMC and just swapped the horn button from my chevy, you'd never know it wasn't orginal.
