Pop off the black ring around ignition lock small screwdriver willl do. Remove dashboard plastic to expose 2 bolts holding ignition assy. Can be tedious. IF you can turn the key turn it to Start. In the plastic housing there's a 1/4 by 3/8 hole. push in a screwdriver which will push in a button on ignition cylinder and allow you to slide it out. The hole is located at 4 o'clock if we agree that the 2 wiring harness plugs are at 6 o clock and its 1 and 1/4 inches below the face of ignition cylinder. If you dont feel that the screwdriver is pushing in that "button" rotate your key until it does. Then just slide the cylinder out.

Turn the key to "on" and let the light flash. It should stop flashing after about ten to twenty minutes. Once the light is on steady, turn it off, then start the car. I usually put another battery on jumper cables attached to the cars battery so it does not run down and die before the system re-arms.
