SOURCE: 1972 VW Bug ignition switch

Put the Key in the ignition and turn the key. It should disengage the steering lock and you should be able to pull it out. Make sure you unplug the switch from the back.

SOURCE: NEED DIAGRAM FOR POWER STEERING SYSTEM

There is usually no diagram for the power steering on a vehicle. On power steering you have a pressure line and a low pressure return line. The pump is located on the front of the engine and has a line that is bolted into it, this is the pressure line coming out going to the steering gearbox where it is bolted in also. The other line has a clamp holding it in place, this is the low pressure return line coming back from the gearbox. If the gearbox is the rack and pinion steering type then you may have a couple of extra high pressure lines on it to operate the rack portion of the steering. Good Luck, RAC

while in park, press harder up past park and it will disengage. Otherwise there is a pin on the ignition you can press and remove the entire ignition. You call also lightly tap gently around igniton piece to loose the pins inside that hold the key.

1972 monte carlo and where is the neutral switch


If it is a column shift, it will be at the base of the steering column by the firewall. If it is a console shift, it will be on the side of the shifter.

96 monte Carlo has good batt. but will not crank, no clicking, no noises at all


Probably going to be your ignition. Its the litytle box under your steering column with all the wires running to it. Check the fuses 1st to rule out the REAL easy fix but I'd put my $ on the ignition. Hope I could help. Good luck

The switch itself is in the steering column. It sounds like you may have a short in the wires in the steering column itself. The Flasher is in the Fuse Box. Check your Owners manual for location of Fusebox. It will also tell you which item in the fuse box is the flasher. But I do not believe your problem is in the flasher or fuse box. It sounds like a wire has worn through the plastic coating and is touching another wire or ground in the steering column. Be very careful if you plan to fix this yourself. It is very easy to accidentally release the Air Bag when you remove it. A qualified Technician should do that for you.

Hwo do I change the ignition lock cylinder in my 99 Monte Carlo?


You will have to remove all the cowlings from the steering column to access the ignition lock and switch. With the correct key inserted and selected to, probably, the ACC position, you should be able to push on either a pin or a tongue that protrudes from the switch into the housing and the pull the whole lock/switch mechanism out.

My ignition switch is jammed on my 1985 monte carlo any suggeestions


you will have to replace the lock cylinder in the steering column. This is a diy job, if you can borrow or rent 2 tools. One is a steering wheel puller, and the other is a lock plate depressor. Some part stores will loan/rent these tools. Once you have the tools proceed as follows: 1 remove steering wheel with steering wheel puller
2 install lock plate depressor and depress the lock plate to remove the retaining ring. 3 Remove the turn signal lever and hazard light button, then the three screws that hold the turn signal switch, pull up on the switch and push it out of the way. You may have to get under the dash and unplug the harness to the switch to get enough slack to clear the steering column. 4 remove the lock cylinder retaining bolt then slide the lock out. slide the new lock in replace the retaining bolt and reassemble the column.

96 chevy monte carlo 3.1 wont start


check to see if the wire is broken for the passlock/passkey system in the ignition lock cylinder, its common for the copper wire to seperate inside the insulation, when you tilt the column it could have been pushing the wires together enough to touch inside the insulation

Ignition switch replacement 1983 monte carlo


you have to take off the steering wheel.if you dont have the right tools to do so i would not attempt it.the turn signal switch has to be moved it just pulls over the end of the column.then there is a torx head screw at about 1 oclock in the column that has to be removed.and the ign.just pulls out.the dimmer switch is kinda tricky.a locksmith usually dont charge to much to do this job.it would probably cost you more to buy the tools you need to do it yourself
