How do i install electrctrical portion of ignition switch for my 2003 dodge intrepid


Hi Robert, I'm glad to help. Here's how to remove and replace the Ignition Switch on your 2003 Dodge Intrepid. FIRST: remove the steering wheel shaft covers that rest over your ignition swtch. Once the covers are removed you now have access to the screws that hold the ignition switch in place. NOW: unplug the electrical connector, then take out the screws that hold it in place. NEXT: You'll need to turn the key to the proper position to release the switch while pulling the switch backward. Once its out install the new one and your done. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Robert.

How do i remove the ignition switch on a 1990 dodge dakota?


I've done this twice in the past year. Remove the two screws under the steering column that hold the cover in place. Then you will see two nuts with washers, one on either side of the column, that hold the column to the dash frame. Remove those two nuts and washers, and you can lower the steering wheel and column to rest on the drivers side seat cushion. Then with a ratchet and I think a 5/16-inch socket and a couple of "wobble end" extensions on the ratchet, one long and the other short, you can contort your body into position to reach the two hex-head self threading screws that hold the ignition switch to the column. Once they are out, you can re-contort your body so that you can disconnect the two electrical plugs that connect to the right side of the switch. (When you first look at the plugs and the wires, it looks as though it is all one plug, but it's two.) Good luck!

How do you change the ignition lock cylinder on a 1990 dodge dakota?


I just recently had to replace the ignition lock cylinder on a 1990 Dodge Dakota. If yours is anything like mine the ignition lock cylinder you need is for a 1989 Dodge Dakota. All you have to do to replace it is remove the center of the steering wheel and the steering wheel. Next you will have to remove the lock plate. After you do that you should be able to pull everything else out of the way. Then all you have to do is take a flathead screw driver and pop the old ignition out. You will need a steering wheel puller and a steering wheel lock plate remover. The best thing to do with the lock cylinder is to go to autozone or whatever store you use and match it up. Good luck

The ignition switch is hanging up in my 1990 ford bronco,


I just had that same problem on a silverado. Yes, you have to replace the switch. Autozone has a tool you can use to remove the steering wheel. If you are not mechanically inclinced you can still do this. Removing the steering wheel sounds scary, or at least it did to me, but it wasnt bad at all.

How do I change the ignition switch in my 1990


  1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
  2. Place lock cylinder in the Run position.
  3. Remove steering wheel.
  4. Remove turn signal switch. It is not necessary to completely remove the turn signal switch from the column. Pull switch rearward enough to slip it over the end of the shaft. Do not pull the harness out of the column.
  5. Remove attaching screw and lock cylinder set. Do not drop the screw into the column.
  6. To install, align cylinder key with keyway in housing, as shown in Fig. 1. Push the lock completely inward, install attaching screw and torque to 40 inch lbs., on standard columns, or 22 inch lbs., on tilt columns.

No heat in 07 dodge cravan


you might need a new heater core or maybe the switch that turns the hot coolant on and off to the heater core might be bad.
