Need to change the Clutch Pedal Ignition Switch; do you have instructions how to do this?


Removal & Installation
  1. To prevent accidental air bag deployment, disconnect the negative battery cable, then the positive battery cable to allow residual energy in the air bag system to drain.
  2. Remove the steering column shroud(s).
  3. Disengage the wiring harness connector from the ignition switch.
  4. Insert the key into the ignition switch, then rotate the ignition key lock cylinder to the RUN position.
  5. Remove the two screws attaching the ignition switch.
  6. Disengage the ignition switch from the actuator pin and remove the switch.
To install:
A new ignition switch purchased from Ford will already be set in the RUN position.
  1. Adjust the new ignition switch by sliding the carrier to the RUN position.
  2. Check to ensure that the ignition key lock cylinder is in the RUN position. The RUN position is achieved by rotating the key lock cylinder approximately 90 degrees from the LOCK position.
  3. Install the ignition switch onto the actuator pin.
  4. Align the switch mounting holes and install the attaching screws. Tighten the screws to 50-69 inch lbs. (6-8 Nm).
  5. Attach the electrical connector to the ignition switch.
  6. Connect the positive, then the negative battery cables. Check the ignition switch for proper function in START and ACC positions. Make sure the column is locked in the LOCK position.
  7. Install the steering column shroud(s).
Is this the one you are asking about?

Hoe to remove the ignition switch in 05 ram 1500


Step1 Disconnect the negative battery cable from the terminal on the battery. Remove the upper and lower steering column covers by unscrewing or unclipping them. Step2 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. Step3 Take off windshield wiper and turn signal switches by pulling them off as you did the steering wheelmag-glass_10x10.gif and disconnect the wiring. Slide the spacer sleeve off of the steering column. Step4 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. Step5 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. Step6 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.
