I own a 1990 jeep comanche truck. Some kids broke into it to steal it but was unsuccessful. They used some kind of sharp pry bar to pry some of the plastic off my steering column. They did not break my...


What the problem sounds like is that one of these rods operates the actual ignition switch (I've seen this kind of ignition system on 1970's GM's). When the ignition key is turned the mechanism inside pushes one of these rods which in turn is physically connected to the ignition switch further down the steering column, have a look down there with a light you may be able to see it but it might be covered. Sounds like the rascals were trying to get to the one rod to push or pull on it in order to start the truck. I would put the key in the ignition lock turn it back and forth to see if one of the severed ends moves and notice which way it moves (one of the two going up towards the steering wheel) then put the key in run position (to unlock the steering wheel) Then push (or pull, depending) on the corresponding severed rod, this should start the vehicle. Remember there should be one click then you should feel a kind of spring action push or pull enough to engage the starter then when the truck starts let go of it. You may have to expose enough of the rod to be able to do this. To stop the engine push the rod the opposite way until you feel one click. You can also visit or call a bone yard to see if they have one of these trucks and get yourself the broken pieces or the whole steering column. I hope this helps you.

The actuator rod has a spring and block the returns the actuator to its normal position. Sounds like one of the three parts are broke. If this is a tilt steering column there is a two piece actuator rod. I am in the process of replacing the upper actuator rod, the pin that connects it to the lower actuator broke off. Never had any ignition problems, one day it just won't turn off due to broken actuator rod. Hope this helps you.

I turned my ignition switch and it turned in a circle without turning over. i think the switch broke. how can i hot wire it to get it home?


The ignition switch actuator broke. Turn the key on, on top of the column is the ignition switch. It has a rod going to it. Use some needle nose pliers and push the rod to the front of the truck. Good luck

Can't shut off power.


I have an '86, and the ignition switch is on the steering column, right under the column shroud. That's what the actuator rod connects to, it activates the ignition switch when you turn the key. So if yours is anything like mine, there's just two screws holding the shroud on, so you should be able to remove the shroud and manually manipulate the ignition switch since the actuator rod isn't connected to it anymore. That way you can hopefully start it as well as turn it off.

Tyrod broke on 2000 cadillac deville


the tierod makes the car steer. and it will cause these symptoms it will come off and wreck you also, there are other things that could do this also all just as dangerous. you need to drive it slowly to get it fixed. you can look at the parts while a friend wiggles the steering wheel back and forth to see what is loose it will have a lot of play in it.
