The cylinder insets to a sector gear which has to be properly alingned to fit correctly. Use a flat tip screwdriver to align the gear.

Replacing ignition switch


The switch? Or the lock cylinder? If you have the old one out,turn the new lock cylinder to the on position ,line up the grooves on the cylinder with the grooves in the column and it should slide right in and click in. The switch just holds in with 2 Torx screws.you align the post sticking out of the bottom of the switch with the indentation in the steering column,tighten the screws and attach the plug to the switch.

Replacing the ignition switch in a 96 ford mustang cobra svt


Follow these steps carefully. this will help you achieve this replacement.



  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the terminal on the battery. Remove the upper and lower steering column covers by unscrewing them.

  2. Remove the steering wheel by lifting off the center cover, disconnecting the horn wire and removing the retaining nut and washer. Make a mark on the steering wheel spline and the wheel itself so you can line it back up precisely. Pull the steering wheel straight back to remove from the shaft.

  3. Take off windshield wiper and turn signal switches by pulling them off as you did the steering wheel and disconnect the wiring. Slide the spacer sleeve off of the steering column.

  4. Unscrew the ignition switch mounting screws. Pull out the ignition switch. Disconnect the wiring connector from back of the ignition switch. Simply loosen the tabs and pull it out.

  5. Insert your key into the ignition. Turn the ignition switch to the locked position. Depress the retaining pin with a small screwdriver and turn the key to the Off position to free the cylinder. Once it is free, turn the key to lock position and remove the key and key cylinder.

  6. Install your old key cylinder into the new ignition switch assembly. Make sure the contacts in the cylinder and assembly line up. Reattach wiring to ignition switch, slide it into place, screw in mounting screws and reassemble steering wheel and switches.

I need to replace the ignition switch, please help


Hi!

You need to remove the steering column shroud to access the small hole in the bottom of the key cylinder. When you put the key in and turn it to the "on" position push a small awl or similar tool into this hole which pushes the catch pin and you will be able to pull the cylinder assembly out. With the new cylinder in the same key position just push it back in and reassemble column.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
