First you have to disconnect your battery, then remove the air bag and all of the goodies in your steering column down to your signal assembly.You then have to unplug the little white and purple wires(this is the security **** that goes to the switch) you then remove the small hex bolt that is holding the switch in place.Pull it out and replace with new switch,don't forget to plug the security wires back up or your car will not start.

How to remove the ignition cylinder in my pontiac firebird 1996

You will have to remove all the cowlings from the steering column to access the ignition lock and switch. With the correct key inserted and selected to, probably, the ACC position, you should be able to push on either a pin or a tongue that protrudes from the switch into the housing and the pull the whole lock/switch mechanism out.

1995 Pontiac Firebird, V8, will not start, just cranks. I tapped the fuel tank as the key was engine was turning and it almost started, but didn't. It has gas, is it the fuel pump?

Spray some starter fluid in the breather to see if it starts. if it does then that is a fuel related problem. If it doesn't that will be electrical.

Ignition Switch is not holding key back on its own

Ok what year firebird is this?? Was this a completely brand new unit? I know that you can get part of it rebuilt and used. It is very hard to tell sometimes. The 93 to 95 4th Gen Firebirds, Camaros are very bad for this. I have a 93 formula and have had to replace this unit twice, it isn't very much fun and isn't cheap either. If you can run a code reader on it and find out the codes it's sending it would be a huge start. I also had problems with the computer and had to replace as well. Some of the problems with the computer actually mimic the ignition problems....Give me as much info as you can and I'll tell you exactly what is wron and how to fix it...
