Bad ignition an i need to start car


When you say "ignition", do you mean the ignition switch or the ignition lock cylinder?
They are actually different parts. If you can't turn the lock cylinder, you may still be able to move the switch with a little work.

You could remove the trim panels under the steering column, remove the screws that hold the ignition switch to the column, disconnect the ignition switch from the ignition lock rod, slide the switch by hand to the "start" position, and then back to "run". It may not be easy, because the positions are not marked on the switch itself. And you won't be able to steer the car. The steering wheel will still be locked.

Startes fine on run postoin its dies


Most of the time it's a bad ignition switch. Remove the upper and lower column covers and find Ignition wiring harness. Find a wiring diagram and check for 12 volts from switch to engine after turning to the runs position, or back probe the ignition power wire to the distributor with a muolti-meter. If voltage drops when releasing ignition from start to run, bad ignition switch. (electrical portion)

1989 wrangler 2.5L won't turn off with new switch


Hi there:Bad installing or a problem with the connections. The most likely problem is a bad ignition switch. To find out for sure, remove the plastic covers over the steering column and remove the 2 screws holding the ignition switch in place. Make sure the mechanism coming from the key is turning the ignition switch. If the mechanism works fine, replace the ignition switch.

I would suggest removing the ignition switch and checking the mechanism in the column to make sure it is actually turning the ignition switch off.


You could have a wiring problem, you will have to follow all the wiring from the ignition switch down the column and into the harness, there is sure to be a short in the wiring harness, that is if as you said you replaced the ignition switch for a new one.

To test this, remove the plastics around the steering column and pull out the wiring plug to the ignition switch, if the ignition turns off you have another faulty ignition switch if it stays on wiring harness has shorted out.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Remove/replace starter sloenoid


your Ignition Switch is bad here is how to replace it
The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.
NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible. On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.

  • Remove the ignition switch wiring harness.
  • Unbolt it from its position.
  • Bolt the new switch into position.
  • Attach the witing harness.

I think you have a bad ignition switch, not the ignition lock cylinder. they are 2 different things.

REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Ignition Switch Removal
  1. Disconnect battery ground cable (14301).
  1. Remove lower instrument panel steering column cover (04459).

  1. Disconnect the ignition switch electrical connector.
  1. Remove the two screws retaining ignition switch (11572).

Installation
  1. NOTE: A new replacement ignition switch assembly will be set in the RUN position as received.

    Adjust the ignition switch by sliding the carrier to the ignition switch RUN position.

Can not remove the ignition key


well the problem is that the key lock actuator is not getting the power from either the shifter switch in the center column or bad ignition switch or bad actuator. you will have to check power at the ignition switch. white wire is the wire that supplies the shifter switch with power
