Yes there is a trick,,There is a spline that has to be lined up before sliding it to the steering sector. Most likely a flat spot.Look for the flat spot on the sector input shaft,and look on the steering colum end and align them up,Jigle and turn back and forth gently,not to much,and apply a little pressure,it should go on .Be sure the pinch bolt is

Location and size of horn fuse also reversing light fuse please

Check fuse, but also check horn relay. Some vehicles have two fuse boxes, one inside the car and one under the hood. The reverse light could be the fuse or the activation switch; sometime by the shift mechanism, (sometimes on the steering column and sometimes under the hood at the bottom of the steering column or on the shift linkage.) I hope this helps. You can also stop by a parts store and see if the counter person can locate your fuses.

Shifter linkage cable

You will need to have it up on a lift to inspect the under carriage where it hooks up to the transmission. Sounds like you lost something.

GMC jimmy key stuck in ignition, steering column will not lock, electrical system working

It sound like your shifter linkage is worn and your ignition interlock is not making it into the park position. I'm not 100% sure on jimmies but my GMC Sierra could be adjusted on the steering column under the hood. It's just a rod through an eye with a bolt. Put the transmssion in park and loosen the bolt and twist the column until the indicator is in park, retighten the bolt.

Need to remove steering column frrom a 92 Camaro, and don't know where to start.

We did the same on a '89 model so it should be similar. The column is not very heavy but as you are unbolting it you will want to find a way to support the column at the steering wheel end. Disconnect the negative battery cable before starting and if there is a steering wheel airbag you should have that disabled before starting the removal process.

Start by unbolting the column from the steering box, if you are reinstalling the same column mark the column and the shaft/plate of the steering box with chalk so that you can easily reinstall it in the same place. The column has two supports inside the car, you will need to remove the lower dash trim pieces and possibly part of the instrument panel. Release all of the column wiring connectors, most of which are also clipped to the column in some fashion. The first support is at the floor, pull back the carpeting and you will see the support plate, ours had studs rather than bolts so we removed the corresponding fasteners from under the hood. The second support is under the dash near the lower edge and is simply unbolted. At this point the column should be completely loose, the next issue is getting it out. You may find some interference with the brake and or clutch pedals. Slide the driver seat back as far as possible, if the seat reclines that would be helpful. Hopefully you will now have enough room to pull the column straight back and out. The assistance of a helper would be useful at this point too. As mentioned before, the column is not heavy but it can be cumbersome to get it out of the car. Installation is just the reverse. Let me know if this helps you out or not.
