Most barrels are removed by inserting the key first. There used to be a very small hole next to where you put your thumb to turn the switch. If this id the case you will need a piece of firm wire that neatly fits in this hole,pushin and turn the key further off. THe barrel should slip out REplacement will be the opposite. If there is no hole look around that area as most units are held in with a retaining pin or clip

New ignition switch put into car. Turn ignition car won't start. Think it's the chip in key how do I bypass


You need to replace the ign. lock cylinder not the switch. You will need to get a new chip key to fit the lock cyl..

Need to remove ignition switch on 1998 chevrolet malibu-How?


Hello rsscott50

I hope you have this thing fixed but if not you can try this.
First I need to assume the "lock cylinder" will turn with the correct key installed.?

You must turn the lock cyl to the run position. I suggest disconnecting the battery first.

I pull the radio out to gain access to the ign. switch.

If you have a small mirror it will really help to find a small square hole in the top of the "plastic" part, "the ign. switch".

If replacing only the lock cylinder you will NOT need to take the 2 screws out holding the plastic piece to the dash.

You will need a tool of sorts so once to locate the small hole on the top of the ign switch and also have the lock cyl rotated to the run position, you press the tool into the small hole.
Tool--can be about the size of a medium screw driver--but the end will have a bend, a right angle bend and the bent piece approx. 3/8" in length.

You will be pressing down on a button help there by a weak spring, look on the new lock cylinder.

As you press down or inward pullout on the lock cyl.
It's that easy.

After installing the new lock cylinder, if that is what your are doing, you might not be able to start the car.
Most chevys have a chip built into the lock cyl. with a sort of password--if the car doesn't see the right password it wont start.

Question: if you need further instruction please let me know.
If the Lock cylinder does not turn, then the fix has another & different approach but you can do it.

Good Luck,
Dave

Change ignition 1998 toyota camry


Yes.
To remove the ign lock cyl, remove the lower plastic dash panel to gain access to the lock cyl housing. Inset key and turn to acc posistion. (one click off lock). Locate the release pin hole on the right/bottom of the housing and with a small screwdriver push it in while pulling out with the key. I cyl sould pull out. Reverse for install. Make sure the new lock cylinders pin is pushed in to install. It only pushes in in the acc position.
