The ignition switch or the ignition tumbler? They are two different things. The tumbler is where you put the key, and the ignition switch is bolted to the bottom of the steering column.

If you are talking about replacing the ignition switch and your truck is equipped with an airbag (in 1995 Chevy trucks had them as standard equipment) you should probably go to an expert for this question. I would take the time to visit the local dealership and just find a mechanic and speak with him for a few minutes, chances are he'd help out.

Usually with airbag situations you are suppose to unplug the battery from the system and then wait xx minutes (I've heard from 15 to 60 minutes) in order to wait for the airbag electronic system to lose power, causing potential accidental deployment.

1986 2.8 camaro starts an dies, but will run on spray. new computer, dist. injectors an pump.

Hold the ignition switch just off where the engine cranks after it starts, if it stays running you need to replace the ignition starter switch. This is the switch at the bottom of the steering column that the key cylinder operates via a rod. See photo below.

I need to replace the ignition switch on my 94 Camaro. Do I have to use a special ignition switch that uses the "VATS" system, or can I just replace the switch that comes with its own set of keys that are...

you can use any non-VATS lock/key and then get rid of the VATS system completely with this: . It will save you a lot instead of buying the VATS key/lock to match your TDM.

Replace ignition in 1999 camaro

The steering wheel does have to come off to access the ignition lock cylinder, however the ignition switch is mounted to the column and does not require the wheel to be removed. A locksmith would have rekeyed the lock cylinder. The high beam switch is mounted of the left side of the column and is actuated by a 6 inch long rod. This does not require the wheel to come off.

How do i reprogram my ignition switch n my 92 camaro rs.i will not start ,brand new starter,ignition switch. new fuses.all the power comes on.

You can't. I just replaced mine on my 92 Camaro and it's a pain in the ***. You can only install the ignition switch one way, then you have to make sure that the rod coming off the tumbler (where your key goes) is in the right spot.
