I think you need to speak to a dealer because there may be coded inputs needed to match a new assembly to the cars electronics. If there is no coding needed then a local garage can do it if its just a lock swap but remember the door locks as well. Most cars have the same key for both. This makes it a costly and expensive job. Change the ignition lock but it won't fix the door problem.

Guide me step-by-step in changing a ignition cylinder key lock on a 1992 cutlass ciera

straighten a paper clip. On the face of the plate thathe key is inserted, there is a hole about 1/16th Yurn the key back into the accessory position. Put the paper clip into the hole and push , then use the kkey as a handle ,rotate it as you pull out on it. Rotate as if to start.. The tumbler will come out with the key. Now, why do you wamt to pull it out? If it is an electrical problem, there are no electrics at the key location. The actual ignition switch is mounted on the lower enfd of the steering colunm on top of the tube and is actuated by a rod from the key mechanism. Good Luck

We need to replace the ignition, the key is missing

If you still have the Owner's Manual it may have the key number in it. Any locksmith can cut you a key knowing the code. Also try a Chrysler dealer. They may be able to retrieve the key code using your VIN. I don't believe there is a way to remove the lock cylinder without a key, unless you want to screw a dent puller/slide hammer into the lock and slam it out. Highly NOT recommended! Could try a used steering column from the junkyard????

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.
