I have not change the switch on a Camaro, but I have changed them on other vehicles, such as a 1985 Chevy truck. It should be similar. You do have to remove the switch from the cylinder lock first. On my 85 truck, there was a ring that held the switch to the lock. I disconnected the wires (after making a drawing showing where each went) then screwed off the ring and removed the switch.

I just put a new ignition lock cylinder in my 92 Camaro Rs and I can't turn the key to lock which keeps it from releasing the key. What should I do?


Your ignition switch may be out of adjustment. If you did not pull apart the whole column and get the rack, which is opposite the lock cylinder, out of time then try sliding the switch downwards.
The swicth is located at the bottom of the column on top of the tube.

Ingnition won't turn past the accessory position


There is a piece of forged metal that is called a rack that attaches to a rod that gies down to the bottom of the column to the Ignition switch these racks have been known to break and jamb up and I have also seen Ignition switches jamb also. Go to the base of the column and remove the switch and see if the key lock cylinder moves all the way now. Then trace your problem to either a jambed Ignition switch or a bad rack and rod.

Remove security off a 1990 camaro because changed the ignition


One way is to change out the chip from the cars computer. Another way is use a General Motors GM VATS Override Bypass Kit, I'v learned that there is a pre-packaged set of resistors for the 15 GM resistor values I found a place called Sonic Electronix. Sonic here it is: http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...+DEI+652T.html
There is also a bit of misinformation on the internet Some tips I've learned when searching out this.
Example: Myth: The standard ignition cylinder lock will not fit or work in place of the vats ignition cylinder lock. Wrong! The standard 1990 camaro cylinder lock fits slightly deeper inside the column, so this takes away your ability to push in the key and turn it backwards for the accessory position. Other than that, it works fine for turning on the ignition.
I hope this helps some.

Replace ignition in 1999 camaro


The steering wheel does have to come off to access the ignition lock cylinder, however the ignition switch is mounted to the column and does not require the wheel to be removed. A locksmith would have rekeyed the lock cylinder. The high beam switch is mounted of the left side of the column and is actuated by a 6 inch long rod. This does not require the wheel to come off.
