The steering columns in these trucks are not real hard to dismantle, but you will need a steering wheel puller in order to get to the ignition switch. Remove the steering wheel, disconnect the horn wire first, then you will see a round plastic retainer cover thats held in by a "c" clip. This could be a ***** to get out- you have to depress the spring loaded cover while trying to remove the clip. Once that is done, you have to unscrew the white plastic signal/hazzard gizmo( 3 screws & pull it out carefully) You should be able to see a small hex head bolt that holds the tumbler/ ignition switch in the column. Remove it and just pull the switch out. Put it back together ( easier than taking it apart) after you replace the ign switch. *hint: a chrome switch is cheaper than black by about 8 bucks.

Seems like the brake is locked and the car will not go into gear on my 1996 chevy impala ss

The linkage in the steering column, there is GM used 2 types there may be a bar that passes through a solenoid or a cable... they can be disabled but it will most likely take someone that knows the columns...spend the money and have it disabled unless you have a day or 2 to try it yourself...

1996 chevy impala ss

the spark on your engine is controled by a componet called "opti-spark" it is located behind the water bump. it acts as your distribitor and ignition coil. they are a bit time consuming to change out and are very expensive! i would suggest having your local chevrolet dealer diagnose it just to be sure due to the expense involved for this unit. i hope this helps you..good luck

ps as i recall from my chevy dealership days, i beleive it was around $1000 installed..but that was a few years ago..proice could change either way now..
