Just got to take apart the steering column cover to get to it. Not real hard but read a manual if you haven't done it before. Be very careful if you have an airbag. Do not let any wire touch anything else. Also the ignition switch is very close. Just read up on it and then take take your time when doing.

Gas tank

You need to replace the fuel tank switch. This is a common problem with the Fords. The switch is about $40.00.

Need special tool for 1993 Buick Regal

you will need a lock plate tool once you have taken the lock plate off you need to take the three screws out of the turn signal switch and unscrew the turn signal handle. when you have done this do not pull it out yet. you need to go under the dash and look for the group of wires that run up your steering column. you'll have to unplug them to get enough wire to lift the turn signal switch out. Do not pull these wires all the way out just enough to lay the thing out of the way. Ok once thats done right above the ignition tumblers is either a screw or a tiny indent hole you will have to knock open hopefully its just a screw that just holds it in.
Ok thats enough for now

One other thing the emergency flasher switch has one screw in the middle just unscrew it
