This is a common problem, but 99% of the time it's easier to fix than you think. Most common problem is that there is a release mechanism on the collumn somewhere. Look carefully, usually underneath. Push it and while holding turn key to off position. Sometimes you have to push the key in while turning. Please post your results.

How to replace and refit the ignition on a chevrolet silverado


If you need to remove the ignition on a chevrolet silverado then just follow the instructions below.
You will also need the following tool unless you can make something similar.
The tool is: J 42759 ignition switch connector release tool.

Removal procedure:

IMPORTANT AS YOUR TAKING THE LOCK OUT OF THE HOUSING MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHERE THE GEARS ARE LINED UP WRITE IT DOWN OR TAKE PICTURE FOR FUTURE REFERENCE AS YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS TO GET IT BACK TOGETHER.

1. disconect the negative battery lead
2. disable the SIR system Zone 3( you will need to check how to do this as it varies from each year of production.
3. remove the hush and knee bolster (instrument gauges and console)
( you may find away around doing the work above but just take your time ok)
4. remove the steering column trim covers
5. with the key in ignition turn the key to the RUN possition
6. install an allen wrench into the hole on top if the lock cylinder. Push down onto the wrench to release the tab on the lock cylinder inside the cylinder housing
7. slide the lock cylinder out of the cylinder housing.
8. disconnect the passlock and key buzzer from the lock cylinder housing
9. insert tool J 42759 into the lock cylinder housing to release the tabs on the ignition switch.
10. pull the ignition switch out of the lock cylinder housing.
11. disconnect the connector from the ignition switch.

Now for the installation procedure.
To install the ignition then follow the instructions below:

1. the gears between the ignition switch and the lock cylinder must be in the correct position, failure to do this will cause the gears to be out of line in the ignition switch and lock cylinder housing witch would result in a no start of engine or even drain the battery, so make sure you get this part right.
2. you need to make sure the gears are lined up correctly if not it wont work correctly if it is wrong you need to turn the gear in the ignition switch until it is in the correct possition
3. use a screwdriver to rotate the lock cylinder housing gear counter clockwise until it hits a stop.
4. connect the ignition switch connector
5. insert the ignition switch into the lock cylinder housing, the tabs on the ignition switch must be lined up correctly in the lock cylinder, make sure this is correct.
6. use a screwdriver to rotate the lock cylinder housing gear clockwise to the start position - allowing it to spring return on its own into the run position, if it dont do this then the chances are you have the lock in the housing the wrong way or gears not set correct.
7. align the lock cylinder and then install the lock cylinder into the lock cylinder housing.
8. connect the pass lock and key buzzer into the lock housing.
9. install the steering column trim covers.
10 install the hush and knee bolster.
11 enable the SIR system
12 connect the negative battery cable
13 try the ignition and make sure it works as it should do

If you are unsure of what is being talked about above then you should either leave this job to a pro or go and get a workshop manual as getting this wrong could result in the car not starting or the battery being drained, either way it would mean you have to do the work all over again

I have 92 Volo 740, new battery, alternator checked OK but it dies out overnight


it sound like you may have a parasitic draw.. its time to get out the multimeter and start probing for cirquits with a draw when the car is off

if you dont know how to probe for parasitic drains. or just want to make sure you do it correct. i reccomend checking youtube videos

heres a few suggested ones.

2000 Hyundai Excel ignition lock problem


What most people refer to as the "Ignition switch" is really the "cylinder lock", that when turned with the key, operates the actual "ignition switch".
The switch causing your problem is inside the steering column, and the column needs to be at least partly disassembled to access it.

Replace the cylinder lock mechanism. The key will have to be turned on to do that. Disconnect the battery first.
Often there is a tiny hole on the column next to the cylinder. You will need to push a paper clip (or something like that in size) into the hole to release the lock mechanism.
