Question about 1994 GMC Jimmy
Hi firsttime here trying to replace a ignition to a '94 jimmy and was wandering how to remove S.Wheel so that i could get to the next step
Gently pop off the horn cap / cover.
There will be a short wire attached, so be careful not to pull it too hard.
You will see the wire going into the metal frame of the steering wheel.
The wire will go into a "sleeve". Push the sleeve in, and turn slightly counter-clockwise to unlock the connector. The horn will beep a few times as you pull the wire out, just to warn you :)
You will now need a steering wheel puller. These can be bought for about $10 at any auto parts store.
Once the wheel itself is off, you will see a black plastic disk. remove it. Now you will see a metal disk with notches in it (this is what locks the steering wheel when you turn the key off). You may want to get someone for assistance for this one, as there is a pretty stiff spring behind the disc, so use caution. You will need to push the disc towards the dash and remove the retainer clip.
Once that is off, you will see the white turn signal switch. Remove the hazard switch button first, then the turn signal lever retaing screw (be careful if it has cruise control, as the wires are thin and delicate), then remove the 3 phillips head screws holding the actual switch on. Let the switch hang out of the way.
Now, you'll see the lock cylinder retaining screw. This is where you may have a problem if you don't have a key.
After removing the screw, you MUST turn the ignition switch to the "run" position and pull out the assembly.
