    To install:

    1. Place the new switch in the OFF-UNLOCKED position. Ensure the lock cylinder and actuating rod are in OFF-UNLOCKED position (3rd detent from the top).

    2. Install the actuating rod into the switch and assemble the switch on the column. Tighten the mounting screws.

    Use only the specified screws since over-length screws could impair the collapsibility of the column.

    1. Install the steering column.

    2. If equipped with the SIR system, properly enable the system, as outlined in Section 6 of this section.

    3. If not already done, connect the negative battery cable, then check the turn signals for proper operation.
