I usually go down the hole with a hammer and small punch and drive the pin in then you should be able to slide the cylinder out only other way I've done it is to drill the entire cylinder out which is not an easy task

Testimonial: "thank you very very much !!! i was thinkin about that but i was afraid i would damage the case that the cylinder goes in and that would probably b bad"

Why is my security light blinking and wont start?


The most common problem is your lock cylinder.
The lockcylinder is equipped with spring loaded contact to touch the chip on the key. After years of use the spring collapse.
Disconnect the battery,remove airbag,remove steering wheel, remove column cover,disconnect orange wire under the dash,turn ignition switch to running position and push the locking pin with small pick . Pull the old cylinder out (tight fishing cord to the end of the orange wire before you pul and use the cord to pul the new one back)
Buy AC Delco plain cylinder and rekey to your old key.you're saving money from reprogramming the new key
Install in revers order
Good luck

Hi i have a 1997 grand prix the keys where lost so i got a new ignition switch but can not remove the old key cylinder because i dont have the keys to turn it in the start position to release the old...


Hi,
Yes it will work that way. Just drill out the retaining clip in the ignition switch that holds the lock cylinder in place. Be care ful with the switch. The new lock will slide right in with key in start position. If it has a rectangular looking metal pin securing it, drill into the plastic part of the switch with a 5/32 drill bit about 1/2 inch back toward the lock cylinder to take out the pop rivet holding the spring loaded pin mechanism in place. The spring comes out and push the pin down with a flatblade and pull lock out......Mike

How do i change igniton switch on 1995 lincoln continental


turn the switch forward to the run position and then there is an access hole under the column to fit a 1/8 drill bit push up on the retaining pin turn the key forward and back and you can tell if you have the pin, return it to the run position and pull out on cylinder. If your looking to replace the switch its on the column and its easier to drop the column to replace it.

Can't get ignition lock cylinder out of switch


there is a pin that comes from the lock cylinder that goes through a hole in the switch and locks it in.normaly you have to turn key to on and tap the pin back inside the cylinder. if you cant turn to on then there is no recess for the pin to tap into.
hers what i do
take the key out
lay it on a vise or similar but lay it on a part of the cylinder not the switch
bash that pin in untill it clears the hole in the swtch
or drill it out, either way you want
the new cylinders, at least those bought from the dealer or not coded that means no wafers or springs are installed
you have to transfer your wafers and springs over to new one in the proper sequence i recomend new ones cause the old ones are worn out along with the key and you will soon if not imediatly have the same problem
just take your old and new cyl. to dealer parts dept. the guy at the counter can code it for you and cut a new key by code. it dont cost that much and its worth it

On-Board Programming Method "B" for Ford keys (1996 -early 1998 Ford, Lincoln, Mercury)
If you want to initiate a new master key.... 1. Insert new key into ignition cylinder and turn it to the ON (RUN) position. The security light on the dash will flash for fifteen minutes.
2. When the security light stops flashing, you have FIVE minutes to start the next step. Turn the ignition cylinder OFF and then back to the ON (RUN) position. The security light on the dash will flash for fifteen more minutes.
3. When the security light stops flashing, you have FIVE minutes to start the next step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back ON (RUN) position. The dash will flash for fifteen more minutes.
4. After the security light stops flashing the third time, the new key has been programmed into the vehicles computer and will operate the car. It has replaced ALL the previous electronic key codes and is the ONLY key programmed into the vehicles computer.
If you want to add a key.... 1. Insert an existing key into the ignition cylinder.
2. Turn the ignition cylinder to ON (RUN) and back to OFF.
3. Remove the existing key and, within 15 seconds, insert the new key and turn it to ON (RUN).
4. The security light will light up for two seconds to indicate success in programming the key into the vehicle.
5. Don't attempt to start the vehicle with any key for at least 1 minute.
On-Board Programming Method "C" for Ford keys (Later 1998-newer Ford, Lincoln, Mercury)
If you want to initiate a new master key.... 1. This requires that the vehicle be connected to special dealer equipment. There are two ten minute delays involved while this device erases all existing key programming and sets up the vehicle computer to accept new key codes. Two new keys should be ready because the system requires a minimum of two keys in the program. After the first two keys are programmed, additional keys can be entered individually by following the instructions for adding duplicate keys (below).
If you want to add a key.... **You must have two original keys to perform this procedure. If you only have one key, you WILL have to take it to the dealer to get it programmed**
1. Insert and existing (working) key into the ignition cylinder.
2. Turn the ignition cylinder ON (RUN) and back to OFF. Ignition should stay on for at least ONE SECOND.
3. Remove the existing key and, within TEN seconds, insert a second working key and turn it to ON (RUN) and the back OFF. Ignition must be in ON for at least ONE second, but no more than TEN seconds. Remove the key.
4. Insert the new key before TWENTY seconds have elapsed and turn it to ON (RUN). Leave it the ON position for at least ONE second and turn back to OFF.
5. The security light will light up for THREE seconds to indicate that the new key has been successfully programmed.
6. To program additional keys, repeat steps 1 through 5
As a precautionary measure for all of the above procedures, you should wait at least one minute after you have performed this until you start your vehicle.

Key broke off in column


If you can get it to turn tothe on position (wait to start position) you should be able to locate the lock pin in the lock cylinder (may have to pull off lower plastic part of column to access) push up on the pin with a small punch or drill bit (with ignition in on position) and pull out the lock cylinder assembly. Be careful, there may be a gear inside that should come out with lock cylinder, use caution when installing new cylinder to make sure it is installed in the proper positon. Hope this helps.
