SOURCE: my 1997 pontiac transport van will not start

CHECK FOR FUEL AND SPARK FIRST.
CHECK ALL THE CONNECTORS ON EVERYTHING, ESPECIALLY THE IGNITION MODULE CONNECTIONS. THE CRANK SENSOR OFF THE BACK OF THE ENGINE COMES UP ALONG THE FUEL LINES AND CONNECTS TO THE IGNITION MODULE.

SOURCE: I need to know how

I can give you instructins on the switch replacement but no diagram, and one will not be needed for this since it is plugged in and can only go one way. You will need a set of torx bits if you don't have these already, they can be purchased at most auto parts and sears and such places. First you have to remove the horn pad from the steering wheel. Take your torx bit with a 3/8 extension and put it on a 3/8 ratchet to remove the forward torx bolts behind the steering wheel. Turn counterclockwise on each bolt until they are removed. Take the horn pad off. Disconnect both terminals on the battery and wait at least two minutes before proceeding to remove the airbag. This is a safety precaution that will prevent the airbag from accidentally deploying. Unplug and remove the airbag. Unplug the electrical connector by pulling it apart using your hand.Remove the steering wheel. Remove the steering wheel nut retainer using a pair of pliers. Take your deep 13 mm socket with your ratchet and turn counterclockwise to remove the nut. Install the steering wheel puller by inserting the three screws into the holes on your steering wheel. Put the ratchet with your 13 mm socket on the middle screw and turn clockwise until the steering wheel is removed.Remove the plate cover. Press down on the shaft plate cover and remove the retaining clip using the pliers. Take the plate cover off.Remove the canceling cam and spring. Lift up on the canceling cam to remove it. Take the spring out.Remove the hazard flashing button. Remove the retaining screw in the middle of the button using a Philips screwdriver.Remove the turn signal switch. Remove the three screws from the turn signal switch. Pull the turn signal switch out through the steering column and unplug the electrical connector. Installation is reverse of removal.
Here is a link to a visual instruction guide although not excactly the same vehichle as yours but is very similar, it also has some questions that need answered before you replace the switch, like diagnosing if it is the switch or the canceling spring or cam.

How do you remove an ignition from a 1997 GMC safari van?


If its just the Key and cylender, Remove airbag fuse and disconnect the yellow connector first if equipt..then the steering wheel with a puller..and then the metal steering wheel lock ring..Depress the ring first to remove the retaining ring and such ..note this is behind the airbag coil retained by a snapring..anyway remove the turn signal lever pulls out..then unscrew the 4 way flasher knob with a phillips screwdriver, then the 3 phillips screws in the white switch assm pull that forward enough to remove the torxs screw on the upper r/h side and the key and cylender should come out..Now if its just the Ignition switch you are talking about..Drop the steering column down enough to access the switch on the top..good luck.

1990 chevy gladiator van steering column has came loose. It is floppy, how and what is the best way to correct this.


I will assume you really have a G10-20-30 van.(half/ 3/4 or 1 ton full size van)
The fifth digit of your vin should be a G.
Not the 2wheel drive pickup indicated.
That being said, your Gadiator is an aftermarket conversion van with a loose column.
This would have to be a loose tilt bowl on the steering column.
After removing the steering wheel and lock plate, you will find four inverted torx bolts that hold the tilt bowl to the column. Two will be backed way out and loose.Remove these bolts and appy loc tite to the bolt threads, then reassemble.

How do I replace or repair a power steering box on a 1997 ford e-350 van that is leaking and has its pulley broken off? thanks in advance. james


You will have to remove the arm that comes off of the steering column connecting to the steering box. "standard" socket and ratchet set should be good. NOT METRIC. and that is what you need to know. the rest is nuts and bolts

My steering wheel on my van is loose


I think the problem you have is the steering assembly being loose.

To repair this, you must remove the steering wheel and work slowly down the column assembly, removing the indicator switch, ignition switch and other assorted springs and things. Lay out the removed parts in the order and orientation you remove them, take digital pictures or draw sketches at all stages, watch the spring placements. I also unplug the column looms to give you more room by moving the switches away for the area in the column where you are working.

Once you get far enough down the column you will see the three bolts that are loose, hidden in a sub assembly. I have only been able to tighten two of these over the years. This is a common fault.

Rebuild the column using the reverse of the order you removed it.

Good luck
