The switch is located near the bottom of the steering column on top, it is actuated by a rod from the ignition lock cylinder.

97 marquis fires up but dies


Do you have power to the fuel pump once the key ios released? Try this, start the engine and carefully let the ignition switch back off until the starter is not engaged, does it stay running? If so you need a new ignition starter switch, the switch is located on the top bottom of the steering column under the dash.

I'm working on a 97 geo prizm and need to find the ignition relay,I rplaced the ignition switch and have no power getting to the switch,there is power at the harness and I can bypass the switch an


If you can jump it at the switch and get it to start, then the ignition relay must be working. It is hard to tell from your post but I think you are using power from another source to do this? I am thinking you have a blown fuse on the wire the furnishes power to you ignition switch.

97 cavalier ignition switch wiring diagram


You have most likely been bitten by the starter relay bug. The Cavaliers had a problem with burning out ignition switches do to high current in the starter circuit. GM did a recall to fix it, but the wiring mods never made it to the manuals. They added a starter relay under the hood to save the ignition switch. This relay will usually fail every 5 years or so, but replacing it is easier and cheaper than the ignition switch. Locating it is easy. Open the hood. On the radiator shroud just to the drivers side of the radiator, there should be a small (2 inches square?" relays fastened to the backside of the shroud. This is what you need to replace. It is a special little ****** and I'm not sure that you can get it at an auto oarts store, but its about $30.00 at GM. Hope this helps!

Ignition alarm will not stop 97 ford f150


The key switch usually breaks or wears out and makes contact. It is on the lock cylinder. This would cause the chime to not come on, or stay on. Sounds like the switch is bad.

1997 F-150/250 Warning Chime, Key-In-Ignition The key-in-ignition chime warns that the key is still in the ignition when the driver's door is ajar. The key-in-ignition warning chime will sound when:
  • GEM: Driver door is ajar, the ignition switch is in the OFF/LOCK or ACC position and the keys are in the ignition.
  • CTM: Driver door is ajar, the ignition switch is in the OFF/LOCK, ACC or RUN position and the keys are in the ignition.
The key-in-ignition warning chime will stop sounding when:
  • Driver door is closed.
  • Key is removed from the ignition.
  • GEM: Ignition switch is switched to the RUN position.
The key-in-ignition warning chime inputs are:
  • Ignition switch RUN position (battery potential on both RUN and RUN/ACC inputs).
  • Ignition switch ACC position (battery potential on RUN/ACC input only).
  • Key-in-ignition switch (grounded with key-in-ignition, open circuit with key-out).
  • LH door ajar switch (open circuit with door closed, grounded with door ajar).
This is a pic for a 98, could not find one for 97 which may be the older style which is more prone to break.

You will also need to swap the speedo cluster. thats where the anti theft module is located. After that you may still need to relearn the key switch.I will look at the wiring diagrams and get back to you on the starter circut in side the vehicle. You may have to change some other things.Talk to ya soon. Dan
