with the bolts removed try gently prying it apart at the centre often they still lock in aswell as use screws so although you have removed the screws its still clipped together it should separate with some gentle assistance

Let's hope with a Supercab you have a tilt steering wheel.If so, just unhook the negative battery cable, line your wheels up straight, leave it in park, and turn the key on. On the underside of the housing the key and lock cylinder is in, above the hazard switch, is a very small hole with a locking pin inside. Using a small punch, or whatever works for you, simply push the pin in as you pull the lock cylinder out, sort of twisting and rotating the cylinder as you pull. A non-tilting column is a little harder, but it's not difficult, just take your time and think about what you're doing. First you need to remove the steering wheel, so make sure you mark the wheel and column in a couple places so it's easy to line up later. On the back side of the wheel are two screws that hold the front padding with the horn in it. Remove it, being careful of the wires, and disconnect. With cruise control, when you disconnect the wiring in there, you need to squeeze the ground wire terminal clip carefully but firmly (it's sort of like a "J" clip), and pull the wire out of the hole in the wheel. DON'T just pull it out, squeeze, it's spring loaded. Then remove the switch for the horn and the nut holding the wheel on. Use a puller on the steering wheel, but not one they call a "knock off", because it's pretty easy to screw things up if you go hammerin' on the wheel or the column shaft. Take your time. Then you'll find the little hole with the retaining pin near the base of the lock cylinder inside the column, remove it the same way. Remember, in park with key on. Hope this helps you out. If you happen to be referring to the actual "ignition switch", located inside the steering column (which most people don't even know actually exists), or you don't have the key and that's why you're doing this, you'll have to let me know, and I'll try to walk you through those procedures at a later date.

SOURCE: 1988 Isuzu trooper steering column locked... n key's missing :(

sort of a solution. if you can get the ignition to turn to the off position there is a pin under it you can push and pull the whole thing out and start it with a screwdriver. or you can take out one screw from behind the ignition on the little black thing and you can start it with anything. i'm not sure if that will unlock the steering column though. hope this helps

I have 1992 isuzu pup truck.sometimes i turn the key to crank it and there is nothing noise wize,no clicking nothing.the dash lights come on,battery is good.i turn the key another time and it cranks r

you need an ignition switch. One way to figure it out is to turn the key to engage the starter, quickly........over and over, the "catch and start" will happen with no change and suddenly, its engaged. Or, keep the key in the START position, don't let up on it and hit the steering column with your fist, or the steering wheel. It may just be shorting out.

Ignition lock

For some designs, an oversize key opening covers the cut-out in the plastic column cover. For these models you would need to remove the column cover to access the actual Ignition switch.

But for the lock cylinder, removal of the Ignition switch is not necessary. With the battery disconnected (to avoid discharge or starter activation); you would seek to find a pin release hole moulded in the bottom of the steering column cover. A nail, drill-bit, or other object is poked into the hole of the steering column to release a spring loaded retaining pin for the lock cylinder.

The lock cylinder has an uneven end to the back of the part to seat in the matching surface on the Ignition switch and interlock with it. This means the lock cylinder can be inserted the wrong way if you are not careful.

There can be other problems that just the lock cylinder will not solve. There are also adjustments in the Ignition switch mounts that affect the Interlock system for the starter. But for the key tumblers a new cylinder can help.

How do I remove the ignition tumbler on a 1992 Explorer?

  1. 1 Open the hood. Disconnect the cable from the negative battery terminal. Peel back the insulator if equipped, and use the wrench to loosen the clamp nut on the negative cable.
  2. 2 Remove the covers on the steering column. Use the screwdriver to pull out the screws, and detach the knee bolster below the steering column. Pull out the screws and detach the lower cover to find the screw for the upper cover; then remove the upper cover in the same manner.
  3. 3 Remove the multifunction switch by pulling out its retaining screw and pushing on the release lever to detach the switch from the column.
  4. 4 Disconnect the ignition switch's electrical connector. Then detach the switch from the steering column by pressing on its clips to release the tabs.
  5. 5 Install the new ignition switch in the old one's place, making sure the locking tabs activate and the spring under the switch is in position on the column's locking rod. Connect the electrical connector.
  6. 6 Reconnect all other parts on the steering column in reverse order of removal. Replace the negative battery cable.
  7. 7 Insert your ignition key to test for proper operation in all three positions: "Lock," "Accessory" and "Start."

How to change ignition switch on 1992 gmc sonoma

Remove the kick panel covers, the lower portion of the dash, remove the lower half of the covers on the steering column. You will have to cut about 3 or 4 wire ties.

You will need a special tool to remove the bolts from the existing ignition switch, (it looks like a reverse torx screw). To remove the other end of the existing Ignition switch cable you will need a nut driver to remove the connector.

Remove the two additional connectors on the outside of the connection. Re-install the additional connectors onto the new switch harness. Connect the adaptor and tighten the bolt. install the switch and tie the harness back into place. replace the cover and Dash panels.

Key Cylinder removal

Lock cylinder & keys is about $90. Switch alone is around $45 with wiring harness. Don't know if switch comes with a new lock cylinder. Thought I had to replace mine, so read up on it in Haynes Repair manual before jumping in. Just did this today. Took my switch apart, cleaned it - nothing wrong, put it back together. Doing that, I didn't have to remove the lock cylinder, so I can't offer hands on with that.
My '89 pickup does not have shearhead bolts as described in the manual - guess some models do. Here's what the book says (with my add-ons):

- Disconnect neg. battery cable
- Remove steering column cover (bottom half - 5 phillips screws)
- Unplug ignition switch wiring harness (I didn't do this - must be back up under the dash somewhere)
- Remove the two ignition switch/steering lock mounting bolts (phillips) If shearhead bolts, cut a slot in the head with a chisel, then use a flat blade screwdriver to remove. You can get to these two screws by turning the steering wheel first one way, then the other. (Once you get in there, you'll see removing it is not a big issue)
- Remove switch assembly from steering column.
- Install is reverse of removal procedure
