How to remove the ignition cylinder in my pontiac firebird 1996

You will have to remove all the cowlings from the steering column to access the ignition lock and switch. With the correct key inserted and selected to, probably, the ACC position, you should be able to push on either a pin or a tongue that protrudes from the switch into the housing and the pull the whole lock/switch mechanism out.

How to replace a ignition swicth on a 1985 pontiac firebird

Disconnect Negative Battery cable. Disconnect electrical connector from switch. Remove 2 small bolts mounting switch to steering column. Remove actuator rod from switch if on outside, or it may be a knob underneath. New switch will usually be pre-set to "Off" position. Attach actuator rod to switch or mount switch over knob and mount to column with 2 small bolts, being careful not to change switch position while doing so. Re-connect wiring to switch, then Negative Battery cable. Check for proper operation with foot firmly on brake. Make sure that Accessory as well as Start and Run functions operate according to corresponding key position. Switch may need to be adjusted if out of sync.

The 3.8 series 2 engine doesnt turn over with the

sounds like it needs an ignition switch. the reason it dies after a few seconds after jumping the starter is bc the security system from gm thinks you're stealing the car so it kills the fire. the security system goes thru the key so if the switch is bad, it wont run no matter how you try to crank it

Ignition switch removal

get a proper steering wheel puller, pull the steering wheel off. remove the screw for the hazard switch. remove 1 screw and a metal bracket for the signal switch. remove 3 screws holding the white switch in top of column. Then you need to pull this switch up out of the way, but in order to do this without wrecking it, you need to remove the plastic panels underneith the column to get at the column mounting bolts. there should be 2 13mm nuts holding the column to the dash. remove these. then there should be 4 13mm bolts holding the bracket to the column. remove these and there should be a plastic casing that th wires go through. remove this and unplug the wiring. now you can push the wiring up and out of the way without wrecking your signal switch. now remove 1 philips head screw holding the ignition switch in place and pry it out gently with a flat screwdriver.

installation is reverse procedure of removal
