If you are using the key and switch that was in replacement column, the resistance of the key pellet for your car is wrong. Provided you connected everything up then the easiest way would be to take your old key (out of old part) and the key from your replacement column to a Cadillac dealer. They can read the resistance of your old key and cut you a new key with the proper resistor. That should start your car.

I have a 1991ford explorer that will only stay running by manually holding key in run position. Have replaced ignition cylendor, still have problem. Something also seems to be draining new battery.

I think on those , there is a swich on the steering colum under the dash. A white box with wiring . Not real certain on that. Take the plastic covers off the bottom of the colum and dash, work your key on ond off and see where it is moving. Or get a shop manual. Just trying to help lol. Hope that helps

Need to remove steering column on a 1992 lincoln town car

Remove the steering wheel, turn signal reset (plastic), remove clip and spring. Remove trim to expose the entire colum. Disconnect all connectors. There are four main bolts holding the colum up. Remove the bolts and lower the colum. At the end of the steering shaft there is a bolt going through the colum. Remove the bolt. The colum can then be removed.
