You'll have to remove the switch assembly, and use a screw driver or needle nose pliers. To get the switch out, the steering wheel has to come off.

It's a 97 civic 4 door manual trans the car won't start by the key I can jump the starter an start it an all the fuses an relays are good what do I do??


ah ha,. the problem of too much weight on a key chain -- broke the ignition switch eh??
If not the ignition switch test the clutch pedal switch... you may get lucky there.,
Well,. alternatively, given the year of the vehicle, you could either modify the ignition switch with a push button, or replace the ignition switch..
Best regards

Ingnition tumbler broke cant start


If the key won't start it; it might not be the key ignition, but rather; the ignition that has a stem that goes from the key ignition down on the steering colunm. However, you can get key ignitions for them, or buy the whole steering colum then take the key ignition out of it. But, I would suggest more information is needed before I can conclude that it is just the key ignition. Hope this help~!

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.

Yes you can replace the switch yourself, it would help to have a manual though. I have heard of this issue, but first verify that no crank signal is reaching the starter motor solenoid using a 12 volt test light while someone holds the key in the crank position, also if the car is a manual trans make sure the clutch switch is ok, it locks out the starter until the clutch is depressed. Remember a few minutes of simple tests can save buying expensive parts you don't need!
