SOURCE: 1989 F150 ignition cylinder switch

Remove the ignition switch cylinder and inspect the contacts in the column. Look for dark spots, scratches, excessive scuffing. My guess is that cleaning the contacts with a little tiny piece of sandpaper and perhaps bending them out a little (so there is more pressure between the contacts when you reinstall the cyclinder) will cure the problem.

94 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4 by 4 4.0 6 cylinder intermittently cuts out I know it's the cam position sensor but I've heard there's a way to test it and also how do you clean it


There is really nothing to clean, unless you find sludge on it.

Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor

OPERATION The Camshaft Position Sensor, or CMP sensor is located inside the distributor. The PCM uses the CMP signal to determine the position of the No. 1 cylinder piston during its power stroke. The PCM uses this information in conjunction with the crankshaft position sensor to determine spark timing among other things.
The CMP sensor contains a Hall effect device which sends either a 0.0 volt or a 5.0 volt signal to the PCM depending on the position of the distributor shaft.
If the cam signal is lost while the engine is running, the PCM will calculate spark timing based on the last CMP signal and the engine will continue to run. However, the engine will not run after it is shut off.


Fig. 1: Exploded view of a common camshaft position sensor and related components-1996 5.2L engine shown

TESTING
  1. Make sure that the ignition is OFF , remove the distributor cap and turn the engine over by hand.
  2. Verify that the distributor shaft turns. If the distributor shaft does not turn, the engine must be checked for proper mechanical operation.
  3. Backprobe with a high impedance ohmmeter between the CMP sensor connector middle terminal and battery ground.
  4. Verify that the resistance is less than 5 ohms. If the resistance is not as specified, repair or replace the wiring as necessary and continue the test.
  5. With the ignition ON and the engine OFF , backprobe with a high impedance voltmeter between the sensor connector middle terminal and either of the end terminals.
  6. Verify that a 5 volt or greater signal is present at one of the two terminals. If not as specified, repair or replace the wiring as necessary and continue the test.
  7. With the ignition ON and the engine OFF , backprobe with a high impedance voltmeter between the sensor connector middle terminal and the end terminal that did not have the 5 volt or greater signal.
  8. Crank the engine by hand and verify that the voltage reading alternates between 0.0 or 5.0 volts.
  9. Install the distributor cap and crank the engine with starter. Verify that the voltage reading is 2.5 volts (averaging voltmeters only).
  10. If the voltage readings are not as specified, the sensor may be faulty.

Ignition switch would start but would not lock into position (RUN) and would shut off and then ignition completely locked down and will not move


The ignition key cylinder in a Buick unlocks the ignition and allows the Buick's engine to start. The cylinder contains a switch on the end of it (inside the cylinder) that sends an electric signal to the starter motor. When the ignition key cylinder fails, the Buick won't start. When this happens, you'll need a new ignition cylinder. Purchase replacement cylinders from Buick.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Things You'll Need:

  • Ignition key
  • Punch pin
  • Cross-point screwdriver
  1. 1 Remove the screws on the bottom of the steering column on your Buick. These screws hold the steering column cover on. You may need to tilt the steering wheel to its highest position to access these screws.
  2. 2 Turn the ignition key to the "II" position in the ignition cylinder.
  3. 3 Slide the punch pin into the access slot on the bottom of the ignition cylinder.
  4. 4 Push the pin all the way into the access slot while you pull the ignition cylinder out of the steering column.
  5. 5 Insert the new ignition cylinder into the steering column with the key in the "II" position on the cylinder.
  6. 6 Push the cylinder into the column until it "clicks," indicating that it is locked into the column.
  7. 7 Turn the ignition key to the "Off" position.

Key sticks after shutting off engine; column mounted ignition; key turns to shut off engine but gets stuck at 2:00 o'clock and won't return (or turn) to 10:00 o'clock for removal


Either your key has been bent or misshaped in some manner or your ignition lock cylinder is going bad and needs to be replaced. You can answer the first easily but if you need any assistance with the removal and replacement of the lock cylinder let me know and I'd be happy to assist you.

the ignition switch is the electrical part behind the lock cylinder where the key goes in.

Ignition Switch Lock Cylinder
Lock Cylinder Functional
Removal
  1. The following procedure applies to vehicles that have a functional ignition switch lock cylinder (11582) and keys. If the key numbers are known, the correct key can be made. Disconnect the battery ground cable (14301). For additional information, refer to Section 14-01 .
  1. Turn the ignition switch lock cylinder to the RUN position.
  1. Place a 3.17-mm (1/8-inch) diameter wire pin or small drift punch in the hole in the steering column shroud under the ignition switch lock cylinder. Depress the retaining pin while pulling out on the ignition switch lock cylinder to remove it from the housing of the steering column.
Installation
  1. Install the ignition switch lock cylinder by turning it to the RUN position and depressing the retaining pin. Insert the ignition switch lock cylinder into the steering column housing. Make sure the ignition switch lock cylinder is fully seated and aligned in the interlocking washer before turning the key to the OFF position. This will permit the retaining pin of the ignition switch lock cylinder to extend into the hole of the steering column.
  1. Using the key, rotate the ignition switch lock cylinder to make sure of correct mechanical operation in all positions.
  1. Connect the battery ground cable.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ignition Switch Removal
  1. Disconnect battery ground cable (14301). Refer to Section 14-01 .
  1. Remove the upper steering column shroud (3530) by removing the four or five self-tapping screws. Remove key release lever (3F527) (if equipped).
  1. Remove lower steering column shroud.
  1. Disconnect the ignition switch electrical connector.
  1. Rotate ignition switch lock cylinder (11582) to the RUN position.
  1. Remove the two screws retaining ignition switch (11572).
  1. Disengage the ignition switch from the actuator.

Item Part Number Description 1 11572 Ignition Switch 2 — Ignition Switch Lock Cylinder Housing 3 — Slot in Lock/Column Assembly A — (Part of 11572) Pin B — Alignment Mark
Installation
NOTE: A new replacement ignition switch assembly will be set in the RUN position as received.

  1. Adjust the ignition switch by sliding the carrier to the ignition switch RUN position.
  1. Check to make sure that the ignition switch lock cylinder is in the RUN position. The RUN position is achieved by rotating the ignition switch lock cylinder approximately 90 degrees from the LOCK position.
  1. Install the ignition switch into the actuator. It may be necessary to move the ignition switch slightly back and forth to align the ignition switch mounting holes with the lock cylinder housing threaded holes.
  1. Install retaining screws. Tighten to 5.6-7.9 Nm (50-69 lb-in).
  1. Connect electrical connector to ignition switch.
  1. Connect battery ground cable. Refer to Section 14-01 .
  1. Check ignition switch for proper function, including START and ACC positions. Also, make certain that the column is in the LOCK position.
  1. Install upper steering column shroud.
  1. Install the lower steering column shroud and key release lever (if equipped).
