Napa , local lock shop or dealer should have the new ignition with wire attached. they run down through the column to a connector under the dash! first find the small plug with the two white wires inside a orange jacket and unplug it. then remove the steering wheel , steering wheel lock plate need a speacial remover to do so (get them on rent at auto zone) , multi function switch (thing the blinker arm connects to) and then to the right of the steering shaft near the ignition you will see the torque's screw that holds the ignition cylinder in the colomn. it will be behind a white plastic piece that has to small metal contacts that will have to be pulled out gently. once the torque screw is out you can remove the ignition and wires! re-install the same way it came apart! if you take it out and deside to try to fix the wire instead of buying new ( not recomended ) you have to solder the wires together because any bad connection will cause the wrong resistance to be seen at the vats computer and car won't start! also when you get the new ignition remember to bring your old key because they have to match your keys resistance there are 15 different types. hopefully this helps and if you have any more question please ask and good luck...

Getting no fuel injected pulse or fire when trying to start 95 ford crown Victoria. What could be the problem?


sounds like your security system. i suspect that the wire in your ignition switch for the security system broke. if that is the case replacement of ignition switch is needed then the dealer has to make you a new key that matches your security system

The security light is flashing and the car wont start how do i fix it


May have a fault in the VATS. Most likely the wires that come from the ignition lock are broke. That is the weak link of the VATS.
Need to measure the resistance of the pelet n your key and basically add that value of resistors to the wire for the lock cylinder at the bottom of the column where they come out.
If you do a search for "VATS bypass" you should find diagrams of how to do this. (This is mistakenly refered to a VATS bypass while it really is not a bypass. The Pass Key module always stays in play. It just bypasses the weak link in the system.)

Chevy lumina, lost keys, broke ignition, need to fix the wires


Solder and shrink tubing work fine for that. That is for the pk2 theft module that tells the car that you are using the correct key with the chip in it.

Security light flashing, does not turn over, do i replace ignition or ecm or both? Do i need new key if i replace ignition?


Chances are the wire going to ignition broke allowing the security to start flashing.this will keep the
car from cranking.On my 93 bonneville I went to Radioshack and got a 680 ohm resister,cut the 2 small
yellow wires on lower steering column under dash,soldered resister to the 2 yellow wires coming from harness.Cost of repair..$1. you can read the resistance on the key by using ohm meter on each
side of chip in key
