SO, is it the electircal part or the key part that you want to get at? The key portion is accessed from the top side and the electrical part is often mounted on the lower column, connected by a rod to the key protion.

yes you can, 1991 Dodge Dynasty Ignition Switch

Things You'll Need

Remove the screws and pull the cover off. This exposes the large square ignition switch. The key cylinder connects to the ignition switch.

    • 3 Pull the wiring harness out of the ignition switch.
    • 4 Place the ignition key into the cylinder and turn it onto the auxiliary position. Push the metal pin on the ignition switch in using a screwdriver and slide the ignition cylinder half way out of the ignition switch. Turn the key to the off position and slide the cylinder all the way out of the ignition switch.
    • 5 Place the key into the new cylinder, slide the cylinder into the ignition switch half way. Turn the key to the auxiliary position and slide the cylinder in the rest of the way. Remove the key from the cylinder.
    • 6 Press the wiring harness onto the ignition switch.
    • 7 Secure the switch to the steering column using the tamper-proof Torx driver.
    • 8 Place the covers back onto the steering column and secure them using the screwdriver.

How to remove bottom part of dash 1995 thunderbird


As others already explain, you don't need to remove the lower dash area to replace the ignition switch, but if you need to remove it for whatever reason, you must first remove the color matched part of the dash that lies just below the steering column by removing the three large bolts that secures it to the dash metal frame (located along the end of the cover) and then pulling it towards the seat as parallel as posible to the floor to disengage the clips that hold it to the dash, then you will see the four screws that hold the lower plastic part of the steering column cover, take them out and you're done.

Ignition switch removal/replacement for 1995 vw passat


Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the steering wheel, and then remove the steering column covers. Remove the turn signal and wiper switches. Disconnect the ignition switch wiring. Remove the clamping washer, spring and contact ring from the steering column, and then remove the lock housing up off the column tube and steering column. Remove the ignition switch mounting fastener and remove the switch. Installation is in reverse order of removal noting the following: Press the contact ring, spring and clamping washer onto the steering column using a properly sized and sturdy metal pipe or tube. If after installation of the clamping washer, the steering column is not projecting out far enough, pull the steering column out further.

1992 Olds cutlass ciera s V6 3.3 won't start. Starter and battery working properly and tried to putting car in neutral and nothing happens. any ideas to try next?


You need to test your mechanical ignition switch located on top of the steering column by your feet. Remove bottom panel below steering column then 2 or 4 nuts holding column to dash. Lower steering column - the rectangular component with the metal rod going in the back side ( goes toward the steering wheel ) is the mechanical ignition switch. Disconnect and inspect harness for corrosion and dirty contacts.If the contacts are clean ( not green, white, or burnt) then look closely at the mounting screws to see if there are marks from where they were originally mounted - it is possible the switch moved away from the steering wheel which would keep that metal bar from activating the start circuit. If the switch moved, loosen mount screws and move switch back to original spot. If the switch didn't move then you can try starting the car with the key and moving that metal arm manually, pushing it toward the engine to activate start circuit. The switch MUST be mounted to the steering column for the circuit to be open ( complete) as the ground is supplied through the mount screws. If this still doesn't work then replace the switch.
Good luck!!

Need to replace an ignition switch- how do i do it


The steering column needs to be dropped to get at it.

Put blocks behind your tires, your car could shift out of park while repairing.

First remove the dash cover below the steering column. Carefully remove the metal clip for the transmission gear shift indicator, and note it's position. Then remove the two bolts from the metal bracket holding the column in place. It should float freely now.

The ignition switch is on top of the column, on the left side. There should be a metal rod and a whole bunch of wires running to it. There are two screws holding the bracket to the column.

Be careful with that rod, if it falls out of the column, it is almost impossible to put back!

I don't know what a new ignition switch comes with, but there should be some instructions for wiring.

Good luck!
