You will have to replace the lock cylinder in the steering column. This is a diy job, if you can borrow or rent 2 tools. One is a steering wheel puller, and the other is a lock plate depressor. Some part stores will loan/rent these tools. Once you have the tools proceed as follows: 1 remove steering wheel with steering wheel puller
2 install lock plate depressor and depress the lock plate to remove the retaining ring. 3 Remove the turn signal lever and hazard light button, then the three screws that hold the turn signal switch, pull up on the switch and push it out of the way. You may have to get under the dash and unplug the harness to the switch to get enough slack to clear the steering column. 4 remove the lock cylinder retaining bolt then slide the lock out. slide the new lock in replace the retaining bolt and reassemble the column.

My 1985 monte carlo electric fuel pump stays on after car is off


my suggestion is , that you probably have a faulty ingnition switch as this completes the connection with your fuel pump which is electric and has no other means of operation eccept the ignition switch , at this point the electrical parts is the egnition switch has failed in the colsed position and allowing constant power to the fuel pump ,this is the only way the ruel pump will remain running ..good luck !!

My mom's 1985 monte carlo headlights has stoped working she has no dome light and no panel lights. she dose have break lights and turn signels. could it be a fuse or the switch?


Probably the headlight switch. To remove the pull out part of the switch, there is a button on the switch that you push while pulling on the knob. The nut that holds the switch to the dashboard can then be turned counter clockwise to remove. Drop the switch and unplug the wiring.
