Ever so often, my 98 S10 will simply not start. It will start 97 times out of 100. Someone said it was probably the clutch starter safety switch. Well, I bought one, but am not sure how to install it.


The clutch switch is located near the clutch pedal. Depress the locking prongs and it should come right out. Unplug from wiring, plug in new switch, insert new switch in old bracket. Done.

Fig. Lock cylinder drill point.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering wheel, then remove the steering column covers.
  3. Remove the turn signal and wiper switches.
  4. Disconnect the ignition switch wiring.
  5. On some models, the hole in the lock body for removing the ignition lock cylinder was not drilled by Volkswagen. To make the hole, use the following measurements in conjunction with the illustrations. Drill the hole where "a" and "b" intersect on the lock body. The hole should be drilled 0.19 inch (3mm) deep
  6. Remove the lock cylinder by pushing a small drill bit or piece of wire into the hole and pulling the cylinder out. It might be easier to insert the ignition key, turn it to the right a little and pull on it.

To install:
  1. Insert the lock cylinder into the housing with the key in the cylinder.
  2. While gently turning the key side-to-side, press the cylinder in to the stop. It should click into place.
  3. Temporarily fit the steering wheel onto the splines, then make sure the column locks and unlocks smoothly.
  4. Install the switches, column covers, wiring and the steering wheel.
  5. Connect the battery cable.

  6. Remove the adapter sleeve from the steering column.
  7. Remove the spring and horn contact ring from the steering column assembly.
  8. Detach the sheer bolt.
  9. Insert the ignition key and unlock the cylinder, then detach the wiring connectors.
  10. Once all wiring has been detached, slide the housing off the steering column.
  11. Mark and drill the lock cylinder as shown and described in the above procedure.
  12. Compress the stop spring and pull the lock cylinder out of the steering column housing.
  13. Put the new lock cylinder into the steering lock housing.
  14. Insert the key into the lock cylinder.
  15. While you gently turn the key, insert the lock cylinder fully into the housing.

NOTE Always use a new shear pin when installing the lock cylinder.

Power window switch stuck on ford. the ''rocker''switch isnt depressing, so the window won't move


dang thats an old car

unfortunantly you have 2 choices
tear the switch out and try and rebuild ( posable )
as it is likely dirty contacts
option 2 go to dealer and buy new switch if they can locate it somewhere in your state
call some of the older auto electric shops and see if they have any old stock and ask if they have any one who can fix the curent or insert a new switch that will work
