You mean it stays on. When the is a fault it is supposed to. Could be a wheel bear, sensor or broken wire. You will still have brakes, just not the anti lock system. Meaning, if you hit the brakes hard enough, the wheels can lock up and you can skid/slide.
Disconnect the battery, take steering wheel air bag off and steering wheel. Drill the pin that holds the lock cylinder in place. It will allow you to turn it with a screw driver and disengage the locking pin. Re assemble. When you get a new one with a key, then just slide the new one in without having to take it apart.
If you want to do it quicker and destructive, then get a hacksaw and cut the lock pin by sliding the blade between the steering wheel and the steering shaft housing.
Try moving the steering wheel left and right as you turn the key - sometimes the steering lock will stick if there is pressure from the wheel. If this doesn't do it, try spraying or pouring some dry graphite into the lock cylinder ( the hole for the key) slide the key in and out of the lock quickly a few times to spread the graphite, then move the steering wheel left and right as you turn the key. Hope this does it for you!
Remove plastic cover around steering column, where lock cylinder fit in, around that housing, around the lower side if it, will be a small pin hole, must turn key to on, and with a pick hook, push up on pin in little hole, lock cylinder will slide right out, if you don't have key, you will have to knock a screw driver with a hammer where the key goes in so you can turn it, will be hard to turn but must turn it, lock is no good anyway, to pull lock out.
could be, try moving wheel right to left while trying to turn the key, steering wheel may have tension on lock, if that doesnt work try another key if still nothing then replace switch, remove cover around switch, then use a pick to push in lock pin must trun key to get pin to go in you will see little hole on housing were lock is that where you install pick and push while truning key, got to get key to turn once more to get that lock out.
Remove the steering wheel,which may require a puller. Mark the wheel in relation to the steering shaft before removing.
Remove the steering shaft locking ring.Held on with a C ring on steering shaft,which may require a tool made to push the lock ring down a little for removal of C ring.
Remove the signal light switch....held in with usually 3 screws and one on the hazard flasher switch. Just pull it out enough to get access to the single bolt holding the lock/key cylinder into the steering column.
Slide old lock out......and slide new lock/key in. Reverse the process.
just remove the top and bottom plastic steering colume covers that wrap around the ign lock cylinder. than you will see from the bottom of the barrel where the lock cylinder slides in there should be a 1/8 brass pin in a small hole .. you have to push in this pin while turning the key switch foward, than just slide out the lock cylinder key and all. reinstall is just as simple , slide in the lock cylinder and just remove the key. you should not have to remove the steering wheel at all...
good luck chris
