No ignition power

I have to use a screwdriver to push the shaft down the collumn that is normaly pushed down the collumn by the turning of the ignition key. there is no ignition switch. long story..... the starter solenoid went out yesterday so i jumped the posts a few times. before doing so i still have to push that shaft down to turn ignition and interior power on. did it and all of a sudden no ignition power. engine still cranks when jumping solenoid posts but cannot get ignition to power anything so no spark, fuel, or interior instrument/gauge power

You blew the fuse, replace it and get a ignition tumbler back in it.

How do I take out my ignition cylinder for a 1987 5th avenue?


I assume you mean ignition barrel. There is normally a little hole in the barrel assemly. When the ignition is turned to a certain position (normaly accesories) You will see a spring loaded pin in that hole. Just push the pin in with small alen key or something like that & the barel should slip out. I wouldnt think you would need to remove that though. If you need to remove the barrel houseing they are bolted on but there are no heads on the bolts. The way to remove them is to carfully chisel it anticlockwise with a small screwdriver or centre punch the bolts drill a small hole just deep enough to get a small easyout in there to undo the bolts. If you need to re use the bolts you cut a groove in the bolt head so you can do it up with a bladed screwdriver.

How do you replace the ignition switch in a 2006 dodge ram 1500


First take off the cowling around your steering collumn It should be only 2 screws on the bottom of your steering collumn. You won't be able to get the bottom half all the way off, but you can get to what you need to do.

You need to pull the bottom half away from the bottom as far as you can without breakng it. Underneath where your inginion switch is there is a little round hole, a bit smaller around then a cigarette. You need a probe or something L shaped to stick up in there i believe a standard pen will work as well. Put your key in the ignition and turn to the on position. Put the L shaped probe in the hole in the bottom of the ignition, turn the key to the on position. While pushing up on the probe and your key in the on position you should be able to pull the old ignition switch out fairly easily. You might have to jiggle and wiggle it a little.

When you put the new one back in, just line up the spring loaded tab (the one you pushed in on at the bottom of the ingnition to get it out) and have the key in the on position like it was when you took it out. It should slide right back in. Turn your key to the off position and your key should slide right out. Put the column back on and your all done! I hope all goes well

I've worked on a lot of cars but I have never had to change the ignition lock cylinder on a 4runner. Does it have a cylinder that has to be in the run position and then push a release button to remove the cylinder? A lot of cars are set up this way. If so the way I do it when I have no key or the key doesn't work is first get a new cylinder because the old won't be usable when you get done. Get a big flat blade screwdriver and a hammer. Hammer the screwdriver into the key slot tight. Grab the shaft of the screwdriver with a pair of vice grips. Force the lock cylinder to the run position. Push in on the release button and remove it. When the cylinder breaks it might break into more than one piece. If so keep hammering in the screwdriver and turning until all the pieces are removed

Pass key system problem


Pop off the black ring around ignition lock small screwdriver willl do. Remove dashboard plastic to expose 2 bolts holding ignition assy. Can be tedious. IF you can turn the key turn it to Start. In the plastic housing there's a 1/4 by 3/8 hole. push in a screwdriver which will push in a button on ignition cylinder and allow you to slide it out. The hole is located at 4 o'clock if we agree that the 2 wiring harness plugs are at 6 o clock and its 1 and 1/4 inches below the face of ignition cylinder. If you dont feel that the screwdriver is pushing in that "button" rotate your key until it does. Then just slide the cylinder out.

Cannot remove key from ignition unless battery disconnected


this is a common problem, but 99% of the time it's easier to fix than you think. Most common problem is that there is a release mechanism on the collumn somewhere. Look carefully, usually underneath. Push it and while holding turn key to off position. Sometimes you have to push the key in while turning. Please post your results.
