1. Disconnect battery.
2. Remove airbag, two hex/torx/or philips head screws in the back of the bag holding it in.
3. Remove wheel. 24mm socket required for this. This is expose the clock spring area. Inspect that.
4. Remove top steering column cover. Two philips screws holding in under the bottom cover. Top cover comes off. The wiring for the horn is in there as well.
5. Remove instrument cluster. Two screws holding that in. Have a flat head handy as well to aid in unplugging the connectors for the cluster.
6. You will see the ignition switch to your right and the harness. Put key in ignition, remove harness, just unplugs. How there will be two small screws holding in the switch. Often, if the switch has never been replaced, they will be covered by a red paint. Take a small philips screw driver and loosen the two screws, no need to remove em. Ignition switch should just slide out.
7. Have new switch handy. No more than $40 even from dealer. Slide switch in. Its good to remember the way the old one came out. Screw down switch, plug in harness.
8. Install the cluster, column cover, and wheel in reverse order from above.

My audi 100 1991 won't accelerate when warm. The

When you say wont accelerate does the RPM flares that would be the transmission slipping, or you step on the pedal all the way and the vehicle has lack of acceration you can hear a hissing noise that would be a plugged exhaust.Here the thing you related it to fuel has the problem on the ignition coil is a powerstage if this stage acts up it allows you to accelerate you just dont go anywhere it back fire through the intake that would be the power stage it located on the ignition coil

Ignition switch pontiac

I am not sure of the correct tool name but it is a female torx with a male pin in the center. You have to remove the cover, and then you should see the screws on the left side, not the ignition cylinder side,. I had to change one from a pontiac grand prix and I had to go buy a set of the male/female torx to change it. After I changed it, I changed the screws to phillips so if the ignition switch needed changed again, I only needed a screw driver.

I need to change the ignition

Hi - sorry you're having a problem

To change the KEY Ignition will come with step by step instructions

2 - To change the ELECTRICAL Ignition [ symptoms being -having to 'jiggle' the ignition to get the fan to come on] to have to move the key CAREFULLY to get the engine to start.

If this is it - then you will need to replace the electrical switch - this is at the BOTTOM of the steering wheel column and requires a lot more expertise. If it is the bottom unit please come back and I will walk you through that one.

I hope this is what you needed for help - if I have helped in any way please vote me up -

check the ignition switch first.

Check all of the battery terminals and cables and check the wires on the starter/selonoid, start from the battery and follow the cable out and check all conections , clean and tighten them and if it still does it the starter/selonoid is bad and needs replacement...
