SOURCE: I have a 1989 Chevrolet

I am experiencing similar problems on an '89 S-10. I have the entire steering column torn apart. There are 4 bolts inside the steering column that come loose and cause the steering wheel to move a little bit. I fixed that problem, but now I'm stuck. I believe there is something that is supposed to attached the shift tube to the gear bowl or the steering column housing, and now thats where I'm stuck. Hopefully you'll be able to tighten those 4 bolts inside the housing and be done with it, good luck. Anyone else have advice?

Don't remove the lock cylinder! just break out the small plastic insert inside the upper panel where it slides over the lock cylinder and once its together you will be happy with the ease of installation and the ignition where the key goes in covers up the whole where that little bit of plastic once was

yes you can, 1991 Dodge Dynasty Ignition Switch

Things You'll Need

  • Screwdriver

    • 3 Pull the wiring harness out of the ignition switch.
    • 4 Place the ignition key into the cylinder and turn it onto the auxiliary position. Push the metal pin on the ignition switch in using a screwdriver and slide the ignition cylinder half way out of the ignition switch. Turn the key to the off position and slide the cylinder all the way out of the ignition switch.
    • 5 Place the key into the new cylinder, slide the cylinder into the ignition switch half way. Turn the key to the auxiliary position and slide the cylinder in the rest of the way. Remove the key from the cylinder.
    • 6 Press the wiring harness onto the ignition switch.
    • 7 Secure the switch to the steering column using the tamper-proof Torx driver.
    • 8 Place the covers back onto the steering column and secure them using the screwdriver.

How to remove top plate on steering column the flasher switch is on top and to fix the problem i have to remove the steering column. i can not get the top of the steering column off.


there are a couple of screws that hold the lower part of the cover to the upper part. Remove those and remove the lower cover. There will then be two male torx screws that hold the upper cover in place just behind the steering wheel (look up under the column and you should see them on either side of the column). Once those two are removed the upper cover will come off.

What is the procedure to changing an keyed ignition lock?


Hi there,

Removal

Disconnect the negative battery cable with the proper size wrench and place away from the battery.
Insert the key into the ignition lock cylinder and turn the key to the run position.
Remove the steering column cover on a tilt steering wheel model by pressing the upper and lower section of the cover together and pulling free from the mounting plate. Remove the steering column covers on a non tilt steering wheel model by using a Philips screwdriver and unscrewing the mounting screws.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the ignition switch by lifting up on the release tab and pulling.
Press the ignition switch actuator pin by pushing a small screw driver into the key lock cylinder, while doing this pull the ignition switch out of the ignition switch housing.

Installation

Insert the new key into the new ignition switch and turn the key to the run position. Insert the new ignition switch into the ignition switch housing. Wiggle the switch back and forth until the actuator pin mounting hole is aligned and falls into place.
Install the electrical connector back into the connector housing by pressing it in with your hands.
Place the steering column covers back onto the non tilt steering wheel and insert mounting screws. Tighten screws using a Philips screwdriver. Place the steering column covers over the tilt steering wheel and press the upper and lower portion together to snap covers back into the mounting plate.
Pull on the ignition key to ensure switch is locked into place. Turn key to the "off" position and remove the key. Insert the key and start the vehicle.

Hope these help.

    How to remove my key lock 2000dodge caravan


    Ignition Lock Cylinder - Removal & Installation CAUTION The Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system must be disarmed before working around the air bag or SIR wiring. Failure to do so may cause accidental deployment of the air bag, resulting in unnecessary SIR system repairs and/or personal injury.
    1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable from the battery.
    2. In order to disarm the air bag system, allow the SIR system capacitor to discharge for at least 2 minutes, before performing any removal procedures.
    3. Remove the screws that secure the parking brake release handle to the instrument panel.
    4. Remove the screws that secure the bottom of the lower steering column cover to the instrument panel.
    5. Disengage the retaining clip that holds the right side of the lower steering column cover to the instrument panel.
    6. Remove the lower steering column cover from the vehicle.
    7. Remove the mounting screws that hold the upper and lower steering column shrouds and remove the lower steering column shroud.
    8. Install the ignition key and turn the key cylinder to the RUN position. This is important because it will not only aid in removal of the ignition lock, but will also place the socket (in the lock cylinder housing) in proper alignment for the installation of the replacement ignition lock.
    9. Press in the lock cylinder retaining tab and remove the key cylinder (ignition lock).

      4045958.jpg
      Fig. Depress the retaining tab to remove the key cylinder
    To install:
    1. Install the ignition key into the replacement ignition lock key cylinder. Turn the key to the RUN position. Depress the ignition lock key cylinder retaining tab.
    2. Align the shaft at the end of the ignition lock cylinder with the socket in the end of the ignition lock cylinder housing.
    3. Align the ignition lock cylinder with the grooves in the lock cylinder housing. Push the ignition lock cylinder into the housing until the retaining tab sticks through the opening in the lock cylinder housing.
    4. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position and remove the key.
    5. Install the lower steering column shroud and install the mounting screws.
    6. Place the lower steering column cover into correct position on the lower instrument panel and engage the clip that secures the right side of the cover to the instrument panel.
    7. Install the lower steering column mounting screws.
    8. Install the mounting screws that hold the parking brake release handle to the instrument panel.
    9. Reconnect the negative battery cable.

    Hope helps (remember rated and comment this).

    How to remove key unit from steering column 1986 F150 Ford


    COUTESY OF EXPERT "C17HYDRO"
    With Key
    1. Disconnect the battery ground.
    2. On tilt columns, remove the upper extension shroud by unsnapping the shroud from the retaining clip at the 9 o'clock position.
    3. Remove the trim shroud halves.
    4. Unplug the wire connector at the key warning switch.
    5. Place the shift lever in PARK and turn the key to ON.
    6. Place a 1/8 in. wire pin in the hole in the casting surrounding the lock cylinder and depress the retaining pin while pulling out on the cylinder.
    7. When installing the cylinder, turn the lock cylinder to the RUN position and depress the retaining pin, then insert the lock cylinder into its housing in the flange casting. Assure that the cylinder is fully seated and aligned in the interlocking washer before turning the key to the OFF position. This will allow the cylinder retaining pin to extend into the cylinder cast housing hole.
    8. The remainder of installation is the reverse of removal.

    This section is for a NON-TILT with no key or non-functioning cylinder:
    Fixed Columns
    1. Disconnect the battery ground.
    2. Remove the steering wheel.
    3. Remove the turn signal lever.
    4. Remove the column trim shrouds.
    5. Unbolt the steering column and lower it carefully.
    6. Remove the ignition switch and warning buzzer and pin the switch in the LOCK position.
    7. Remove the turn signal switch.
    8. Remove the snapring and T-bolt nuts that retain the flange casting to the column outer tube.
    9. Remove the flange casting, upper shaft bearing, lock cylinder, ignition switch actuator and the actuator rod by pulling the entire assembly over the end of the steering column shaft.
    10. Remove the lock actuator insert, the T-bolts and the automatic transmission indicator insert, or, with manual transmissions, the key release lever.
    11. Upon reassembly, the following parts must be replaced with new parts:
      • Flange
      • Lock cylinder assembly
      • Steering column lock gear
      • Steering column lock bearing
      • Steering column upper bearing retainer
      • Lock actuator assembly
    1. Assembly is a reversal of the disassembly procedure. It is best to install a new upper bearing. Check that the vehicle starts only in PARK and NEUTRAL.

    This section is for TILT and no key or non-functioning cylinder:

    Tilt Columns
    1. Disconnect the battery ground.
    2. Remove the steering column shrouds.
    3. Using masking tape, tape the gap between the steering wheel hub and the cover casting. Cover the entire circumference of the casting. Cover the seat and floor area with a drop-cloth.
    4. Pull out the hazard switch and tape it in a downward position.
    5. The lock cylinder retaining pin is located on the outside of the steering column cover casting adjacent to the hazard flasher button.
    6. Tilt the steering column to the full up position and prepunch the lock cylinder retaining pin with a sharp punch.
    7. Using a 1/8 in. drill bit, mounted in a right angle drive drill adapter, drill out the retaining pin, going no deeper than 1/2 in. (12.7mm).
    8. Tilt the column to the full down position. Place a chisel at the base of the ignition lock cylinder cap and using a hammer break away the cap from the lock cylinder.
    9. Using a 3/8 in. drill bit, drill down the center of the ignition lock cylinder key slot about 13/4 in. (44mm), until the lock cylinder breaks loose from the steering column cover casting.
    10. Remove the lock cylinder and the drill shavings.
    11. Remove the steering wheel.
    12. Remove the turn signal lever.
    13. Remove the turn signal switch attaching screws.
    14. Remove the key buzzer attaching screw.
    15. Remove the turn signal switch up and over the end of the column, but don't disconnect the wiring.
    16. Remove the 4 attaching screws from the cover casting and lift the casting over the end of the steering shaft, allowing the turn signal switch to pass through the casting. The removal of the casting cover will expose the upper actuator. Remove the upper actuator.
    17. Remove the drive gear, snapring and washer from the cover casting along with the upper actuator.
    18. Clean all components and replace any that appear damaged or worn.
    19. Installation is the reverse of removal. Check for proper operation.

    How do you release the ignition tumblers from the casing /


    Removal of the ignition lock cylinder from steering column mount.

    If your vehicle does NOT have airbags, skip to the next section.

    In case you haven't done it yet or missed a step, 'Disarm The Airbag' (Supplemental Individual Restraint or SIR).

    When handling a live airbag, keep it aimed away from you, wear safety glasses.
    • Align the tires so they're straight ahead
    • Turn the key to the LOCK position and remove it
    • Remove the SIR fuse from the Instrument Panel Junction Box.
    • At the base of the steering column, you'll see a bright yellow plug with a device holding it in place. Remove the device, detach the plug.
    • Remove the negative battery terminal
    • Remove the four nuts holding the SIR inflator module from behind the steering wheel. Lift the inflator module out of the steering wheel.
    • Unplug it from its harness.
    • Store it someplace safe. Do not let it come in contact with any electrical source.

    The Next Section:

    This procedure assumes prior removal of steering wheel, lock plate, signal switch, etc. (a.k.a. the hard part). Since only the cylinder was mentioned, I skimmed the rest. For additional info on removal of these items, just ask.
    • Disconnect the negative battery cable
    • Remove the steering wheel
    • Remove the column shroud (two pieces of plastic covering the column)
    • Remove the combination switch
    • put the ignition key in, turn it to ACC.
    • On top of the cylinder case you'll see a square button. Press it and slide the cylinder out.


    If you feel this helped, please take a sec and rate the response.

    Thanks
