Someone will have to trace the wire from the key switch to the neutral safety switch, then to the starter to find the problem.

The replacement of a steering column is easier than you think, and you can do it without a book or diagrams. First, head off to your favorite junkyard and scout up a truck that is similar to yours in year, make and model. This way, you are assured to have a piece that slips right in. Take the column out of the junker before you try to take the one out of your truck. Open the hood and you will see the column shaft just sitting there, and separate the column from the steeering box. Typically, it can be a slip joint with a single bolt to tighten it up on the steering box shaft, but you could also see a canvas/rubber flex joint with four bolts coupling the shaft components. You might have to squirt the bolts with panther **** (WD 40, etc.) in order to get 'em loose. Under the dash, you'll see a long flat plugin for the wiring harness that comes from the bottom side of the column. Unplug that and remove the cover under the dash that hides the two nuts that hold the steering column mounting yoke. Pull back the carpet at the spot on the floor where the column goes throiugh, and you will see a rubber gasket of sorts that has four or five small screws holding it to the floor. If a part of the wiring harness is in the way of you dropping the column down and out, look for the plugin that connects it and get it out of the way. DO NOT PULL VERY HARD ON THE WIRES! If the truck didn't have tilt wheel when you bought it, you can get a tilt column out of the junker that can make your day a bit brighter. Remove the column out of the junker, first. Experience is always the best teacher, and the junker will show you how to go about putting the replacement column in your truck. If the truck has an automatic tranny shifter on it, all you have to do is pull a pin from the column, directly in front of the truck's firewall. I have done numerous column swaps and have never needed a book or diagram to do it, and neither will you. If a man can build it, another man can generally fix it or replace it. Remember to start out with the junker, first and foremost, and you can count on the job taking you (as a first timer) about two to two and a half hours. Take your time, pay attention, use your good eye, and enjoy yourself. Ain't nothin' scary about this job. Relax. The truck will actually show you what it take and how to do it.

Changed rack and pinion. when turning wheel to right horns started blowing. unplugged airbags and horn stopped. drove truck for 1 day now wont start and dome light is blinking and warning lights on dash...

It sounds like you disturbed the wiring or the connector inside the lower portion (inside the cabin, under the dashboard) of the steering column. You may have also pinched wiring higher inside the steering column, up near the horn button. You'll need to track it all down & correct the wiring problems in (and around) the steering column.

My 2001 chevy silverado's low beams don't work. I

The wiring for the low beams would run not to the ignition, but to the dimmer switch. I don't know what color they are, but sounds like you are at the source of the problem, if the low beams quit when the column is let down. Pull the trim pieces off the steering column and examine the wires going to the dimmer switch. You may see some wiring insulation scraped off. It could be a bad dimmer switch, but check the wiring first.
Good luck.

I just purchased a 1989 chevy cheyenne but was told the turn signal does not work. I was told it was a switch in the steering column...Is that fairly easy to get to and fix?

To perform this repair you need to remove the steering wheel. there will then bee two or three screws holding the mechanism in place. down towards the bottom of your steering column you will find the wiring that you needs to disconnect. Pull the wiring up and out and install the new signal switch in reverse order.
