Ignition Switch Inspect | Test | Replace 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.
The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company.

If it's the ignition lock cylinder, there is a screw/pin behind the steering wheel. You'll have to remove the wheel lock retaining ring and plate. You'll see the screw just above or below the lock cyl. If I remember, it's about a 5/15 socket that fits it. Oh yea, the key will have to be in the "run" position to remove the cyl.

Most GM veicles of that vintage are similar. Disconnect one of the battery terminals. Remove the horn button from the center of the steering wheel. It may be the type that pulls off or it may be the type that comes off with 2 screws on the back of the steering wheel. Pull the dust cover (if any) then remove the large nut in the center of the steering wheel. Note the orientation of the wheel so that you can get it back in the same place. The next step will require a steering wheel puller. They are relatively inexpensive, but you can also borrow one from many auto parts retailers. Use the puller to remove the steering wheel, then you should have access to the ignition switch mounting screws(s). Pull the screws and the ignition lock cylinder should come out easily.

Not the igniton switch, its the ingition cylinder and or the housing. The switch is not part of what you are really turning. It's connected to it via gears. The common problem is the key gets worn out and the tumblers wear also. Eventualy they do not line up right and will not make the "bar" drop in the cylinder to allow it to turn from the off positon. If you have the title in your name and the key has never been rekeyed or the code has been changed you can go down to a dealership with all of the info for the truck and they can cut you a key from the vin number. You can try that first before you put a cylinder and housing in it.
