SOURCE: I am seeking location of
Disconnect Car Battery
I replaced the ignition switch in my wifes 2000 intrigue. (ignition mounted in front dash). I had to take off the knee bump trim and the trim around the instrument housing and remove the instrument cluster. Leave it connected and just lay it on the dash. You also need to remove the radio to get to one of the screws that hold the ignition switch module. Once you get that loose you can pull it out so you can disconnect the wires going to it.
If you need to replace the ignition module insert the key and turn to accessories, there is a small metal button to push in, then your key and the lock part will fall out to install into your knew ignition module. At that time you can also remove the cruise control cable.
I am not a mechanic and the whole process only took me an hour or so.
I replaced my ignition module to fix the heater and AC operation. It also fixed the cruise control that hadn't worked for a year.

if you cannot reach the light panel from under the dash by laying on yer back with the aid of a flashlight then,.....there are screws underneath the dash itself and this is somewhat moderate as you'll need to find all the screws and remove them to allow the instrument cluster to drop down and tilt forwards to access it that way ...but I would try the first method if it were me.......hope this helps you.

WARNING - Read ALL instructions before starting this project. Will take about 4 hours total
- You will need - minimum tools - =
1 long screw driver that fits the clamps on your particular car - ALSO PLIERS - also to fit potential clamps on your car - a flat pan to catch the fluid - anti-freeze - water - what ever
long sleeve shirt [ trust me on this] and GLOVES
you will need some wrenches too - so be sure to have access to a 3/8 set of tools - ratchet - sockets - misc and also metric because some are made in Canada. SHOP SIZE RAGS and I suggest old bath towels - 3 - and a new roll of GOOD paper towels.
Try to part the car to where once you drop the fluid - you can move it to a dry spot.
Also for a do it your selfer - get an old rubber backed carpet from the local door way rug people - get a 'dead' one with holes for about 10.00 - it can save you a lot of dirt in the pants if you lay on the ground.
Be sure you car is cold - let it set over night.
1 - open hood and remove the radiator cap
2- best to jack the car up and secure it -
3- there is a PETCOCK valve under the car
4- HERE IS WHERE IT GET'S TOUGH
5 Either turn the petcock counter clockwise or loosen the hose clamp and remove the bottom radiator hose. This will cause the fluid to leave the car - INTO YOUR BUCKET that you got from the local store.
6 IF you can move the car - do it now
7- remove the top cover of the radiator
8 - remove the top bolts [ one on either side] of the radiator
9- remove the transmission lines - here you HAVE TO HAVE -- LINE WRENCHES] - these will prevent you from stripping the nuts heads on the lines. PLEASE check with your NAPA dealer or CRAFTSMAN dealer for the least expensive wrenches you will need.
10 with GLOVES on - remove the radiator and set it on the ground - here you WILL GET WET - count on it - it will happen.
Reverse this to put it back in.
To get the EXACT size of the line wrenches and other tool sizes you will need - TAKE DOWN THE VIN NUMBER - call the local dealer and ask the SERVICE and PARTS Department for these.
While on the phone ask about any RECALLS on the CARS VIN - This one thing can save you thousands of dollars.
Hope this helps
please vote me up if this helps at all

Of course, if your timing gears or chain fail, the engine will suffer significant damage, with valves hitting pistons and bending. Broken rocker arms and even lifters jammed into the head can be a very expensive repair.
Timing chains on these engines probably should be replaced around the 200K miles mark - when a mechanic replaces the valve cover gaskets he should take a light and inspect the chain guides. If they have significant wear they should be replaced.
Excessive chain noise and plastic bits in the engine oil are also signs of an impending chain failure, but you won't have much warning.
