Ignition lock cylinder keeps blowing


I don't think the key and tumbler is your problem at all. The switch is down on your steering column. It's either loose and sliding around when the rod pulls, or it's wrecked. They can cause all kinds of problems. Just drop your steering column and take a look.

youve got to remove the steering wheel, take the locking mecanism off, then the mecanism for the signal lights off....whitch should only have a few screws.....then where the ignition switch is.....you should see a screw that looks like it goes through the switch..remove that then give the ignition switch a tug or two and it should come out
