    The ignition switch lock is not hard to replace. The switch first needs to be exposed by removing the colomn area covering it. Older cars use a clip or a pin that can be pressed, that will allow the switch module to slide out. Many newer cars use a clip and a pin to slide the switch out. Many times you will need to rotate the key to a certain position for the switch to slide out. The older switches use mechanical connections to transfer the voltage from the battery to the starter and the ignition coil. Newer ignition switches use a electronic switch called a proximity sensor. The prox. sensor sees an internal metal tab and will switch the 12 volts on. The switch allows the car engine to spin over, start, then stay running.

How do you get to fuel pump on 1992 infinity G20?


There should be an access port under the back seat (buttocks cushion). Remove back seat and you will see a round plate. Under plate is fuel pump. Recommend buying repair manual for the car at an auto parts store before starting.

This is a big job and the procedures required for removal and installation are too large for this post. But...what you can do is, go to the local Library and sign out a manual and review what procedures need to be done. This will give you a good idea of other procedures as well.
