How to replace a factory ignition switch t universal awitch

I think you can get a wiring diagram from the internet. or you can use a ohms meter and volt meter to help check the wires out to see where the go or come from, always use the colors of the wires to help check they are coming from or where they are going to. You really need to find a friend with some knowledge to help you. just remember that you have to a 12 volt line coming in, 12 volt going out #1 to starter #2 to the ignition coil #3 the fuel pump. If you get that right if will at least run. use the color codes to trace to each thing you want to use. GOOD LUCK Jerry

Color code

Most newer vehicles (yours included) have a lot more contacts than just the three you are talking about. I have a 2001 dodge grand caravan and it has 13 different wires running to the ignition switch. The point here is that you will have to combine several wires on one contact which may or may not do the same things the original switch does which may lead to all sorts of strange problems with the engine, transmission and all the other accessories on the vehicle. The other problem is since you will have more things running on one contact, your new switch may be overloaded and prematurely fail or even start a fire since some of the main feeder wires to the ignition switch may not be fused small enough to prevent overheating the switch. A factory/OEM switch may be more expensive but in the long run will save way more problems than the cheaper switch will. To specifically answer your question, most over-the-counter vehicle service manuals available at any auto parts store or in some libraries have generic wiring diagrams that should show you which wire would go where.

I have a problem what wire were their are 4 wire's i took off the starter of my dads 69 corvette 350/350 i dont remember which way they go back on and it was spliced and reparied some time ago before i...

All the power wires,the ones from the battery and the ones that go to the fuses panel need to go to the positive post on the starter.The power to start the engine needs to come from the ignition switch and go through a neutral safety switch or a clutch pedal switch before going to the starter you might want to check these before you go too far.

Ford O/D button causes fuse to blow.

Hi ktm-dave,

The short circuit may be in the soloniod that operates the overdrive.

Sorry pal, you'll have to go through it yourself....
.....Disconnect the cable from the soloniod and then see if the fuse still blows....If it does, then you'll know that it's not the soloniod.....
.....I think that the switch on the column, will control a relay....The coil side of the relay will be grounded and that will cause the switch part to close, and that in turn will allow power to the soloniod....which in fact is just a bigger relay, carrying a heavier amperage.....
.....You'll need to isolate each part of the circuit, untill you find out where the short or over load is....Once you've discovered that you can either isolate the defective wiring and run a new cable, or sort out the original, finding out what is causing the over load.....Sorting it out and fixing it is better than by passing it.....

best regards Johngee10
