The ignition switch is on top to the left of the steering column,drop the steering column and allow it to lay on the seat.Remember to remove the prnd indicator so not to break the cable.Then look under the dash on the column,and you will see a steel rod going to the switch from the key switch,this has two screws holding it on the column,just remove the screws and replace the switch,make sure the key is in off,and put the switch on without moving the switch selection,so it will be lined up.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Just changed ignition switch in 1995 Chevy Silverado 4x4, shift indicator light won't come on. Rpm and speedometer not working therefore transmission not shifting correctly. ????????


All of those problems happen with a bad ignition switch so you must have bought a bad one from auto zone or you connected it wrong.Did you change the ignition switch or the key cylinder in the steering column because there is a difference?The ignition switch supplies power to the fuses.

1995 Sable when ignition switch turned off, engine still runs and everything keeps working. ignition switch was changed; still has problem


You said you changed the ignition switch. You changed the switch or the ignition lock cylinder? I've seen cars also do this after a remote starter has been installed but you said you nothing like that on your car.

Ignition switch pontiac


I am not sure of the correct tool name but it is a female torx with a male pin in the center. You have to remove the cover, and then you should see the screws on the left side, not the ignition cylinder side,. I had to change one from a pontiac grand prix and I had to go buy a set of the male/female torx to change it. After I changed it, I changed the screws to phillips so if the ignition switch needed changed again, I only needed a screw driver.

My 1994 f150 ignition switch will turn the truck on but won't turn it off. Also the switch is very loose, does this need to be changed or tightened?


The plastic ignition actator (plastic gear drive) has lost the steel pin pressed on the end of it. This thing connects the mechanical key ignition switch to the electrical ignition switch(with pin gone will push ignition on BUT with pin gone cannot PULL ign. switch to off position),the whole steering column will have to be removed from truck to replace.Availible from Ford or parts stores--ASK for plastic ignition actuator-metal one is for 1987 to 1991 F150s.
