I start my car but it immediatly shuts off and the theft sys light flashes could this light be the reason?


the ignition swith reads the key chip when key is turned, this is a common problem,the ignition switch will need to be replaced, after replacing the swith reprograming will be needed, to program you will need a battery charger to keep battery from going dead, after installing new switch,turn charger on, turn key to crank then release key leaving ignition on, you will see the dash lights, leave key on for about 15-20 min, until you see theft light go out, if light doesnt go out then repeat process,crank for 2 sec, then leave key on 15-20 mins until security/theft light goes out, hope this helps.

I need to replave the key switch in a 1991 cavalier


First disconnect your negative battery cable. Then remove the plastic cover below your steering colum, and the covers that cover your headlight swith, turnsignal switch, ignition, ect. Remove the bolts that hold the steering colum to the dash, and allow it to lay on the drivers seat. Place a towel under the colum (to catch metal shavings), and drill out the two screws that hold the ignition in place.
Install your new ignition in reverse.

Whoa....first, the ignition swith is not a part of the tumbler. you went in to far. replace the switch and put the brass gear on the tumbler. slide the tumbler out and install the keeper. the tumbler needs to be in the "on" position..

Yes you do require a special tool to remove them. You could drill out the screws and that would remove the ignition swith but you would still need a tool to put the new one on.
