My steering column is loose on 1989 delta 88

All GM models use the same steering column until the late1990's. So please follow the instructions with pictures at the link below. I assume you have a tilt column.

Does the stearing column adjust?

I've never heard of that problem. But racers have to disable those steering wheel locks, so if you like, I'll talk you through it.

The way the lock works is that a pin is forced up through the steering column from underneath. The pin is at the end of a little hinged flap, and a spring pushes this flap up towards the column. When the key is removed, the flap is freed, and the spring pushes it upwards. So, all you need to do is remove the spring. That way, gravity wins, and the pin never gets pushed upwards into the column.

Removing the spring is not that hard, really. You don't even need to remove the steering column trim. Under the center of the steering column, at the end of the ignition switch, you'll find a rectangular metal piece. Drill a 3/8" hole right smack dab in the middle of it. If you aligned the drill right, a spring will fall out of the hole (or maybe just get wound up on the drill bit). Once you remove the spring, the little flapper that sticks up into the steering column to lock it should be allowed to drop, and your steering will unlock.

Of course, yours is already stuck for some reason, so I can't guarantee that removing the spring will allow the pin to fall out from the steering column. If necessary, I suppose you could try to insert a screw into the flap through your new hole, and then use the screw head to try to pull the flap down.

Good luck!

How do i remove an ignition in a gmc jimmy 2000 without a key?

Hello, Dan. First, disconnect the negative (-)/ground on the battery Dan are you mechanically inclined. If not then don't attempted this job.

You will need to remove all the plastic covers on the steering column. Remove the horn ring.--two screws under the steering wheel. Remove the horn ring and disconnect the horn plug. Remove the steering wheel nut. Use a steering wheel puller to remove the steering wheel.

Remove the turn signal switch that fit around the upper part of the steering column. Then remove the some of the parts that are associated with the steering wheel and/or column.

Now, look at the ignition switch flange, it a big chunk of aluminum. Now look for a large aluminum dowel pin 5/8" in diameter that is driven into the chuck of aluminum but it is parallel to the steering column.

This aluminum dowel pin will have to be drill out before you can get ignition housing off, If there is adjustable steering column lever, remove this also.

Now, once the dowel pin has been removed, looking for a **** in the ignition housing. Take chisel and insert into this ****, drive the chisel into the **** until the ignition housing is loose to be remove by sliding it up over the steering column.

If you buy a new ignition switch, on purchase the switch with keys. Don't buy the hole new ignition housing.. If you do it will get expensive.

In the ignition (old) housing drive out the ignition switch pins that keeps the ignition switch in the housing. Install the new ignition switch re-insert the ignition switch hold pins.

I am fairly sure that Carquest/ NAPA some other larger auto parts will have ignition housing bolt. If they try to sell you a replacement aluminum dowel pin don't buy it. It is almost impossible to install the aluminum dowel pin without the proper tools, so use a bolt to squeeze ignition housing together.

Before putting everything back together. Now, check the new ignition switch to make sure it works. I wish you lot of luck. GB...stewbison

I don't know where the signal light flasher is located the signal lights don't flash

Your vehicle has 2 flasher relays. One for the turn signals and one for the hazard lights. The turn signal flasher relay is located on the drivers side, under the dash, mounted on the drivers (Left) side of the steering column. The hazard flasher is mounted on top of the steering column. Do not get them mixed up.

Engine cuts out when steering wheel tilt is adjusted. Also, cruise control not working.

For the cruise control, check the fuses under the steering wheel. As for the engine cutting out, don't adjust the steering wheel while driving.
