You will need to remove the steering wheel from the post with a puller. Once you find the switch inside remove anything in your way and make note of where it goes. There are usually three screws holding the switch in. Once free, you need to unplug the lower harness connector and thread it up through the column. Match the wiring on the old switch to that on the new one. If the new one has a connector is identical and wires match, use it as is. If the connector or wiring is different, match each wire, starting at the switch location and place that wire in position in the connector. It helps to write down each location both at the switch and connector so if you get lost in the middle you can have a reference to go back to.
Once wiring is correct, thread the connector and harness back down through the column and finish putting it back together.
I would check operation before putting wheel back on. Also it helps to mark the wheel position to the shaft so it does not end up being uneven and not centered.(do that before takingwheel off) Also don't hammer on shaft to get wheel off definitely use a puller.

How do i change my signal switch in my 1993 mazda 929


Hi Shannon, befor you dive in and replace the indicator switch I would suggest you check the flasher unit. To replace the indicator switch you will need to remove the steering wheel (this usually means using a puller) Don't forget to punch match marks on the steering wheel and the column which must be aligned when assembling. Remove the steering wheel center cover. then the covers on the steering column Removed the screws (usually four) holding the stalk switch. don't forget to disconnect the battery and the wiring connection to the stalk switch. After replacing the assembly is opposite.to dismantling. Regards John

Remove the steering wheel and replace the directional switch

I am down to putting steering wheel and instruments in a 67 mustang after a 10 year long project. I have parts, I think, but can't figure out how the steering wheel, horn ring and all the misc parts go...


Are you installing the original steering wheel or a replacement? Screw holes shouldn't be off at all if all original parts are installed. Sounds like a replacement part may be for another model year. Double check all the steering/horn/turn signal switch plates to make sure they're the correct part numbers. Only 10 years, huh? I'm in year 3 and still haven't gotten to the floor pans! Maybe another 8 - 10 years and I'll have it on the road.

No headlights or turn signals on my 1988 mustang


Check the turn signal dimmer switch. It is under the steering wheel. You will need to take the steering wheel off. See if any wires are loose or damaged going to the turn signal switch. Good Luck!

Replacing the ignition switch in a 96 ford mustang cobra svt


Follow these steps carefully. this will help you achieve this replacement.



  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the terminal on the battery. Remove the upper and lower steering column covers by unscrewing them.

  2. Remove the steering wheel by lifting off the center cover, disconnecting the horn wire and removing the retaining nut and washer. Make a mark on the steering wheel spline and the wheel itself so you can line it back up precisely. Pull the steering wheel straight back to remove from the shaft.

  3. Take off windshield wiper and turn signal switches by pulling them off as you did the steering wheel and disconnect the wiring. Slide the spacer sleeve off of the steering column.

  4. Unscrew the ignition switch mounting screws. Pull out the ignition switch. Disconnect the wiring connector from back of the ignition switch. Simply loosen the tabs and pull it out.

  5. Insert your key into the ignition. Turn the ignition switch to the locked position. Depress the retaining pin with a small screwdriver and turn the key to the Off position to free the cylinder. Once it is free, turn the key to lock position and remove the key and key cylinder.

  6. Install your old key cylinder into the new ignition switch assembly. Make sure the contacts in the cylinder and assembly line up. Reattach wiring to ignition switch, slide it into place, screw in mounting screws and reassemble steering wheel and switches.

The following procedure is "generic" for replacing the lock cylinder. There are a couple of specialized tools you will need and saftey precautions concerning the air bag system.
Take a look and let me know if you wish to tackle the job.
Regards,
To remove the ignition lock:
CAUTION You must remove the steering wheel when replacing the ignition lock. On vehicles with a Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system, you must temporarily disable the SIR system and remove the inflator module when removing the steering wheel. Leaving the SIR system on could result in deployment of the air bag and possible personal injury.

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable, and remove the steering wheel.
  • Remove the bumper and the carrier snapring retainer from the steering shaft.
  • Use a lock plate compressor screw tool to install the lock plate compressor screw in the upper steering shaft. To keep the shaft from telescoping, tighten it to 40 inch lbs.
  • Using the lock plate compressor tool, install on the upper steering shaft, tighten it to depress the shaft lock. Remove the shaft lock retainer, the compressor tool and the steering shaft lock.
  • Remove the turn signal canceling cam assembly. Put the turn signal switch in the "N" position and remove the upper bearing spring.
  • Position the turn signal switch so the mounting screws can be removed through the holes in the switch and remove the turn signal lever.
  • Remove the turn signal switch-to-steering column screws and lift the turn signal switch. Remove the wire protector and disconnect the turn signal switch connector.
  • Use a terminal remover tool to disconnect the buzzer switch wires from the turn signal switch connector. Remove the buzzer switch assembly with needle-nose pliers.
  • Place the lock cylinder in the ACC position, then remove the lock retaining screw and the lock cylinder set.
  • To install the new cylinder lock, reverse the removal procedures.
  • Tighten the lock retaining screw to 22 inch lbs., the turn signal switch screws to 59 inch lbs. and turn the turn signal lever screw to 53 inch lbs.
  • As part of the final replacement procedures, check the operation of the switches and the steering column.

ReplacingTurn Switch


1. You are going to need a steering wheel puller.
2. You remove the steering wheel center.

3. you remove the large steering column nut, then install steering wheel puller to remove the steering wheel. It is necessary to mark the shaft to the steering wheel so that it will go back in the same position.

Once the steering wheel is removed, you can see the turn signal switch. There is one center screw that holds the turn signal switch inside the steering wheel hub.

Once the screw is removed the signal can be lifted up over the steering wheel shaft.

Now leaving that, go underneather the dash area and remove the smallpanel around the steering wheel shaft. There you will find a large electrical connector with all the wires that are used in the steering column. This connector can either be fed up thru the column or by disconnecting all of the wires and feeding them up through the column.

this will remove the old switch. The new switch and its wiring harness must now be fed back down the steering column and then reconnected to the large electrical connector.

Now re-install the new switch, screw the turn signal stem back into the switch assembly and the re-install the steering wheel, according to the aligments marks you made, otherwise your steering wheel will be off centered. Tighten down steering wheel center nut, and other panels. Check operation of switch.
Factory manuel gives mechanics 1 hour to do this, but it cam take up to 4 hours.
