Ok, start by disconnecting you negative battery cable. From there, wait at least 1 minute to disable your airbag system. You will have to remove the airbag from the steering wheel, it's retained by a couple bolts on the back of the steering wheel. Once you get the airbag out, disconnect the wires to it, and set it aside. Remove the clip that is above the lock nut for the steering wheel, then remove the lock nut. You need a steering wheel puller to pull the steering wheel off. After you remove the steering wheel, you should have access to the turn signal switch.

SOURCE: remove ignition switch

U must dis-arm the airbag 1st, disconnect the battery for 30 minutes before you begin work, then remove the airbag, the retaining screws are at the back of the steering wheel down in holes I believe, after that remove the safety clip at the top of the steering wheel threads, then the steering wheel nut, you will need a steering wheel puller to remove the steering wheel, they are about $10 from any parts store, after the wheel is removed remove the airbag clock-spring rotating contact, then remove the turn signal switch, there will be 3 screws holding the turn signal switch in, remove them, then remove the lower trim under the dash and crawl under and and disconnect the large flat connector at the bottom of column, this will allow u to pull the turn signal switch up and out of the way, don't force anything be patient, under the turn signal switch on the right of the area above the ignition lock cylinder u will see a black headed screw, it may be a tamper proof torx/star screw head or a phillips, remove it, then turn the ignition to the on position and slide the ignition switch out, reverse it all and put it back together. take your time, don't rush, good luck, contact me with any further questions.

Check the wire harness on the transfer case to make sure it's still plugged in. Check the selector switch in the dash. Check the hub sensor wire harnesses on the front wheels.
Check for error codes through OBD-II connector under the dash.
Good luck.
