It is the passlock seneor. Is the wiring a 2 wire connector with an orange coating? If so then the connection is at the base of the column.You can tape the new wiring to a coat hanger put grease on it and fish it down through the column. You will have to perform a theft learn when you get it back together. Good Luck.

no, you have to have the switch in the on position, you either have to drill the ignition out (1/2" drillbit) or chisel the tumblers out of the cylinder... using excessive force may break the column...which is definatly way more $ than a lock cylinder. to be safe i would just use the chisel method... if you drill too far you will ruin the column also

the ignition switch is located under the dash at the bottom of the steering column.suspect a fault in the linkage connecting tumbler to switch.
