My mother has a 93 Pontiac Bonneville that will not start. It turns over, however there is an indicaiton on the dash board that says Anti-theft Device. How can we bypass this or get it to started?

Replace the ign lock cylinder. Or get new cylinder and plug it into the connector from the old lock cylinder at the lower part of steering column. Put old chip key in the new cylinder and hide under dash. Start car with a duplicate key from old key. No need to tear apart steering column ever again for this problem.

The ring on my ignition broke on my 1988 F150 long story short let some one fix it and they took it all apart so I START IT WITH THE LITTLE metal L shaped part... I need to know get a new column or repair...

If somone has taken the column apart there's a good chance there may be some small parts missing or broken. I recommend a trip to the local salvage yard for a used column. On a 88 ford you
should be able to pick one up for 50-$75, be sure to save you're old key's for the door locks.
Hope this helps.

2004 Saturn Ion Power Steering

To fix the power steering problem with the 2004 Saturn Ion is simple, replace the power steering motor. It is held on with two bolts, one bolt is difficult to get to because it is hard to see. Remove the two gold bolts and unplug the motor. Put the new motor in and plug it in and you are good to go. The part number is: 20995579 and I paid $187.53 and it only took me 20 minutes. Twenty minutes because one bolt is hard to reach. You will find the motor up under the dash board where the brake pedal is, up by the steering column. You will have to lay on your back and look up, there are 4 silver bolts - leave those alone, they are part of the motor, it is the two gold bolts you need to remove. Good luck to all of you, it worked for me. You do not need expensive repairs or the entire steering column replaced!!! I reported this problem to Saturn and they are not at this time doing a recall. I am a 50 yr old female and did the repair myself!!

Ok,if you pull the cover off the steering column,you will see the electrical part of the ignition,it is the part the key cylinder is inserted in and the wires run down to a connector about halfway down the steering column.Just replace that piece and all should be fine.

Steering problem

What i can recall the only removable electronics is the complete turn signal assembly or the other would be the electronic piece that is actually the key reminder buzzer that reminds when key is left in ignition while engine is off...This looks like two flat copper match sticks attatched to a 1 inch piece of plastic... Well enough of my guesing.. if you were to go to an auto parts store and look at a motors repair manual for a chevy steering column little if anything has actually changed in the design with the tilt steering column which is probably why you originally took it apart because of the tilt torx bolts coming loose... I hope you used locktite when you reassembled to makesure it doesnt happen again....Good Luck

The flasher unit is located behind the dash and almost above the steering column. A very real pain to get at. There are 2 different type of flashing units the cheap one for about 30 dollars like mine, or the expensive one for like 100 dollars. The parts store had to use the VIN# to find out what month it was made for the correct flasher. The unit is in the shape of a cube and before you get it apart, which is hard, remember the orientation. This will be helpful when putting it back together. I used a small flat screwdriver to unlock the tabs located on both sides. The fit is so snug it it was difficult to get apart. It goes together the same way. Very akward location and very tight fit made it difficult. Took me about an hour to do. .
