SOURCE: Trouble replacing ignition switch.

Normally we would replace the lock cylinder and housing at the dealer.....but if it were my car I'd uses a punch and hammer to slam that pin in and remove the cylinder. It's worth a try first before having to replace the entire housing.

I have a 2000 ford explorer eddie bauer the power windows the wipers quit working could it be a wire in the body control module


If the heater fan is not working as well, the ignition switch may be bad. Try turning on the key ( not starting the vehicle ) and gently turn the key back and forth a tiny bit with the wipers in the on position. If they start to work suspect an ignition switch failure. Unlikely a BCM problem causing all these failures

Remove ignition lock to switch link 1995 suburban


The ignition lock assembly contains two components: a lock cylinder to deter theft and an electrical portion that supplies power to electrical components such as the radio, electric windows, and windshield wipers. The electrical portion of the ignition switch also provides power to the starter motor to start the engine.
The ignition lock is an anti-theft device that prevents a vehicle from being driven unless the ignition key is in the ignition switch. If the ignition key is not in the ignition switch, it 's impossible to turn the steering wheel.
To replace the ignition switch cylinder lock, the trim panels around the steering wheel are removed. Then the tamper-proof hardware that attaches the ignition lock assembly to the steering column is removed. The ignition lock assembly is removed from the steering column, and the lock cylinder is replaced. The new ignition lock is reattached to the steering column, and the trim panels are replaced.make sure you dissconect battery first the 1997 had a recall on the ignition switch dont no if the 1995 had a recall if so they will replace for free

Ford f150 the windows,radio & wipers don't work when the motor is runing then i turn it off & place the key in the back position of the switch they work


Might want to remove the tumbler, and check it for obstructions, or dirt in the grease.

One quick test for this would be :

Start the truck as normal. Check the radio, if it is off, slightly turn the key backwards towards the off position, only moving the key 1 or 2 mm. It could be the key is not returning from the start position correctly.

To check the tumbler :
Look on the bottom of the steering wheel cover. There should be 4 holes, but only 3 screws. The empty hole should be by the ignition switch.

1 Insert the ignition key and turn to the RUN position.

2 Insert a punch in the access hole of the steering column and press the release tab while pulling out the ignition switch lock cylinder.

Once you have it out, you should be able to look inside the tumbler path, to see if there are any obstructions, or grease & dirt build up.
This is also the same way to remove the key in ignition warning chime. It should be a tab on the end of the tumbler ( mine was broken, left in the tumbler path )
Pry the clip down, and push the tab off the rear of the ignition switch lock.

Putting it back is a case of pushing the same punch in the hole, insert the switch lock cylinder back in, release the punch, and cycle the key to the off position.

most likely you have a very bad ignition switch, the only other pathway for switched acc. to operate when key is off is if someone has had the wires feeding the fuse box crossed. so unless you had recent wiring done by an amature, you need and ignition switch. after replaceing you may still need to replace some fuses or bulbs that didn't like being powered at the wrong time.

My car just will not start bcm?


sounds like your ignition switch. NOT the key switch, the igintion switch. It works off the key cylinder to allow or not allow power to your components. Like radio, gagues, starter, ignition, wipers etc. If the switch is going bad, you may have power to some or none of those components with key in on position.
