No there is no way to take and trade parts on them. ur best bet would to be try and make the tilt steering on work in there. if u look on ebay they make conversion kits to do this. they r fairly resonabile priced too

My steering column is loose on 1989 delta 88


All GM models use the same steering column until the late1990's. So please follow the instructions with pictures at the link below. I assume you have a tilt column.

I have a 97 olds 88 how do I change the ignition switch with diagram


up under dash, mounted basically on the side of the steering column

2 screws hold it to the column. sometimes easier to remove the nuts holding column up to dash, lower column down some till wheel on seat.

You remove the 2 small bolts holding switch to column, then there is a rod in the back for the key. Lift switch off rod, Alig new switch back on rod and mount new switch back on the column

It is adjustable to need to eb 100% you have it adjusted so it does NOT start in reverse or any other gear. Only park and neutral


its the top left in picture, shown.. tilt and non tilt very clse to same

1990 Jeep Cherokee 4.0l 6cly fuel inj.... recently my steering column has play into up/down and right to left. Steers fine, except it's loose. Key sometimes won't come out and the fuse on the instrument...


Hi, I know the problem well. Had 2 different columns apart recently. What happens is the star bolts holding the lower bearing assembly get loose. You have to take everything off to get to them. First the airbag, if you have one. You have to disarm it first by taking both cables off the battery and touching them together. With the airbag off, take the bolt off the steering wheel and use a puller to get the wheel off. Then the dust cover. With the cover off, you need a lockplate compression tool to push the lockplate down while you remove the locking clip. The lockplate comes off, then the the turn switch canceler, then the turn switch. You have to take the wand and hazard button off to get the switch out. There are then 3 screws holding the upper bearing housing on. First remove the key barrel set screw and remove the barrel. Then remove the 3 screws. Next, you have to pull the ignition switch linkage off the gear opposite the key barrel. The linkage looks like a big key. The housing then comes off and hangs on the turn switch. Make sure you catch the bearings if they are loose. At this point, if you don't have a tilt column, you may be able to see and tighten the star bolts. If you have the tilt column, you will have to take it off. There are pins in each side. An 8/32 screw can be screwed in and pried to pull the pins out. Take the adjusting rod off and the tilt mechanism will come off. The return spring and retainer will also be loose. Now you can tighten the bolts and put everything back together. Now, you're going to want to see some pics to help you. Fortunately, there are a lot of these out there. Here is one, but there are many more: http://www.epiccomputer.com/dale/jeepjunk/tilt/tilt.html . You will want to find one that's like yours--tilt if you have tilt or non-tilt if you don't. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo, lights come one intermittently, horn came on unexpectedly and wouldn't turn off. How do I fix that?


Lights intermittent can be caused by switch or relay. Try swapping the Low Beam relay with another similar relay (horn relay is a good choice) to see if that resolves it. These relays are in the Junction Block--may be under the hood or in the car but not in the big box by the battery). If this doesn't fix it, the problem is likely the headlamp switch.

Horn coming on is usually caused by a broken switch or stripped wire insulation inside the steering column. You would usually have to take the steering wheel off to fix it, and this requires special tools; however, if the problem happens to be under the steering column shroud, you may be able to fix it without taking off the steering wheel. Take the shroud off and see if you can follow the black/red horn wire. Follow it as far as you can to check for stripped insulation contact with any metal. If you lights switch is bad, you can also change that while you have the shroud off.

Please let me know if you have questions.

Blinkers do not work but when i put my brakes on my driver side blinker comes on and its a solid light


The symptoms for the driver's side sound like a missing or high resistance ground on the driver's side.
You will need to check both the front and rear Stop / Turn / Park sockets to find which one it is.

Once you have the ground confirm / corrected the non functioning turn signals, try raising the tilt steering wheel column all the way up and re-test. Some times the connector for the MFS ( aka MultiFunction Switch, turn signal lever ) behind the knee panel pulls apart. If this corrects the non functioning you need to pull the knee panel ( screws from bottom lip, and tab at the top by the cluster ) take a look for the connector :

Pull the connector apart, and check for discoloration on the pins, and reassemble. Pull up some slack on the truck side ( vs the part that goes up the steering wheel column ) and zip tie it to the knee panel frame so it does not pull tight again.
