How do I take out the ignition switch cylinder on

You need special tools to disassemble and replace the switch. The best thing would be to find a qualified technician and have them replace the switch.

Ignition switch

sounds like the ignition switch isn't 'resetting' correctly. You'll likely need the dealer to fix the issue. Or you can try replacing the ignition cylinder, but usually requires special tools as it's 'secured' to prevent auto theft.

I need to replace the ignition switch in my car

There is an Ignition switch that is located under the dash. On the other hand if your referring to where the ignition key goes in then this part is called an ignition cylinder. If it is the ignition cylinder (or tumbler) then yes the steering wheel must be removed to replace this and you will need special tools to do it. I would not suggest doing this yourself with no experience as there are lots of small pieces and parts in there. The ingition switch is located under the dash on the steering column and has a wire harness attached to it with numerouse wires. This is replaced by removing 2 small bolts and unplugging it. There is a rod running down the column that goes into a slot on the back side of the ignition switch. It must be placed in the hole where the old old was and then the switch may need adjusting forward or back to properly work.
Hope this helps.

Yes you do require a special tool to remove them. You could drill out the screws and that would remove the ignition swith but you would still need a tool to put the new one on.
