Hi Anthony, If you have entry to the vehicle, remove the cowling's from the column and chisel out the blind bolts holding the saddle in place. Once the bolts have been removed the barrel will detach from the column and can be replaced. When fitting the replacement tighten the until the heads break from the bolts. Regards John

SOURCE: ignition switch 1994 ranger

If it were me, I'd take the Vin # down to the Dealer and get a key made(and take back the ignition you bought). As far as I know without the original key to allow the release pin to depress, the only possible chance might be to try another Ford key and it may release the ignition basket. Or call a locksmith and he can make a key for probably $50. **Or (ha ha) I could make a copy of my '94 Ranger key and send you a copy ! :>)

Well,

From what I remember you need to put the missing key in and then press the cylinder release, a small hole by the ignition switch. Without the key, I guess you would need a locksmith to turn the tumbler then press the switch. Lock pick set anyone?

I have a 87 cadillac sedan deville 4.1 did nthe warm and power buttons its ncomin up with trouble code e27 and e52 what doesn this mean and what do i have to do to fix it runs but no power


E26 and E27 which is "Shorted throttle switch signal" and "Open throttle switch signal".
The code E52 just means that the ECM lost power or ground or that someone forgot to clear the code after hooking the battery back up. It could mean a bad computor but not very often. 2 things that come to mind is a bad ignition key or lock cylinder or a faulty neutral safety switch. Try the other ignition key first. Then with your foot on the brake pedal hold the key in the start position and move the shifter slowly from P to D. If it tries to start then the NS Switch is bad or out of adjustment. If it still won't start then you will need to troubleshoot the ignition key/PASS KEY system for an open wire in the steering column. Hope that helps. Bill

you damaged the ignition switch and it will not recognize key you have to replace the tumbler and ignition switch the key acts like an electronic switch in most modern vehicles put key in and its recolonized and will turn and start vehicle ---damage to key or tumbler sets off anti theft and you have no start ---in future dont try to hot wire or pop ignition when keys are lost (thats all hollywood) go to dealer with vin and proof of ownership and they can cut you a new key

Replace ignition 87 4runner


It is probably better to replace the switch.
If it is anything like my 87 4Runner, the switch is pretty worn out anyway. I just replaced the switch wiring harness in mine.
Get a new switch and a Haynes manual at an auto parts store.
The manual describes how to replace the switch.
WAY too much to list here, but pretty simple really.
Good luck :)

2003 tahoe won't start - has lights


If he had it started two times without the key , i would think it was the starter either . Do you an the guy who replace the ignition switch know how the starting system on your tahoe works ? Do you know what a neutral safety switch is ? Try moving the gear shifter to neutral an see if it starts then . That is if your tahoe has a automatic transmission . When you turn the key to the start position this sends a voltage signal to the PCM - engine computer which inturn will energize the starter relay , closing the contacts sending B+ voltage to the starter solenoid , spinning the engine over . Using a factory scan tool you would be able to see if that start signal from the ignition switch is making it to the PCM . Also would be able to energize the starter relay with the scan tool to see if the computer can energize the starter relay . You could also do testing with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter . Find the PCM an connector 2 pin #59 , this is the circuit for start from ignition switch . Have someone turn the key to start , is there B+ voltage ? Find the starter relay in the under hood fuse box, pull it out an look on the bottom . You will see four sets of numbers 30 , 87 , 86 , 85 . If you take a piece of wire an jump 30 an 87 in the fuse box the starter will crank the engine , or spin the engine . If you do that and it won't start , cables , connections or the starter is the problem .

NEED NEW KEY


If you go to ebay, under "audi 5000 87 ignition" you will see the full ignition block with new keys, and its only $49, and you can offer less since its best offer. You can check local junk yards, and parts stores, but you may not find the part due to the age, hope that helps
