What can i do ? my peugeot ew 10 engine ignition coil no spark. i changed spark plugs but still no change .Please help


If you have no spark, changing plugs will not help. Did you check the ignition coil to make sure that it is not open? Is the coil receiving power when ignition is turned on?

Best bet is to get a hold of the electrical schematic for car and check out the ignition circuit for culprit.

1995 Sable when ignition switch turned off, engine still runs and everything keeps working. ignition switch was changed; still has problem


You said you changed the ignition switch. You changed the switch or the ignition lock cylinder? I've seen cars also do this after a remote starter has been installed but you said you nothing like that on your car.

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.

If i change my ignition after a break in do i need a new key for the doors and ignition too


If the door lock is undamaged then it's fine to use the old key in the door and the new key with the ignition - you then have 2 separate keys for ignition and door -
I dont quite understand the question... could you word it fidderently,
You said you "changed my ignition" - which parts of the ignition?

My 1994 f150 ignition switch will turn the truck on but won't turn it off. Also the switch is very loose, does this need to be changed or tightened?


The plastic ignition actator (plastic gear drive) has lost the steel pin pressed on the end of it. This thing connects the mechanical key ignition switch to the electrical ignition switch(with pin gone will push ignition on BUT with pin gone cannot PULL ign. switch to off position),the whole steering column will have to be removed from truck to replace.Availible from Ford or parts stores--ASK for plastic ignition actuator-metal one is for 1987 to 1991 F150s.

The ignition key cylinder and ignition switch are two different parts. Which one did you change? Your problem is the ignition switch not the key cylinder if that's what you changed.
