    I can't find no bolt. Why would the ignition switch wires be running down the neck???

    THIS is not a switch...ITS A LOCK CYLINDER for locking the bike up.

    Sometimes they are tricky to get to. Should be an assembly usually bolted on from the rear. You may need to go to the opposite side or underneath to find the bolts. It has to be removable as this is where the ignition switch wires go as well,

    If you can find your ignition wires, you should be able to find where they meet the switch. Get a service manual if you need to know exactly how to do it. They will take you step by step, and have pictures for visual reference.

2001 ford taurus key won't turn ignition


The steering wheel was turned when the key was removed. So when you try to turn on the key, turn the wheel one way and the other way to release the pressure on the key. The key should turn ok.
Hope this helps.

1996 CHEVY TAHOE - REMOVE IGNITION CYLINDER WITHOUT KEY


it is possible but you will need to drill out the old lock cylinder. The lock cylinder needs to be in the run position in order for the retainer button to releases. If you don't have a key than you will either have to have one made by a lock smith or a dealer.

If you cannot get a key then you will have to drill out the lock cylinder until you are able to turn it to the run position.

How do i replace a ignition switch for a 1992 mercury sable


The ignition switch on Mercury Sable is integrated into the ignition cylinder. When this switch fails, you may need to purchase a special switch from a Ford dealership if the switch used a wireless transponder.


Instructions for NON Functional Cylinder (Cylinder will Not Turn or No Keys ):
1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Remove the steering wheel.
3. Using locking pliers, twist the cylinder cap until it separates from the lock cylinder.
4. Using a 3/8 in. (10mm) diameter drill bit, drill down the middle of the ignition lock key slot approximately 13/4 in. (44mm) until the lock cylinder releases from its breakaway base. Remove the lock cylinder and drill shavings from the lock cylinder housing.
5. Remove the retainer, washer, ignition switch and actuator. Thoroughly clean all drill shavings and other foreign materials from the casting.

2. Install the actuator and ignition switch.
3. Install the trim and electrical parts.

To install:
1. Install the lock cylinder by turning it to the RUN position and depressing the retaining pin. Insert the lock cylinder into its housing. Make sure the cylinder is fully seated and aligned in the interlocking washer before turning the key to the OFF position.

2. Rotate the lock cylinder using the lock cylinder key, to ensure correct mechanical operation in all positions.
3. Connect the negative battery cable.


Door Lock:
When a lock cylinder must be replaced, replace both sides as a set to avoid carrying an extra set of keys.

How to remove my key lock 2000dodge caravan


Ignition Lock Cylinder - Removal & Installation CAUTION The Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system must be disarmed before working around the air bag or SIR wiring. Failure to do so may cause accidental deployment of the air bag, resulting in unnecessary SIR system repairs and/or personal injury.
  1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable from the battery.
  2. In order to disarm the air bag system, allow the SIR system capacitor to discharge for at least 2 minutes, before performing any removal procedures.
  3. Remove the screws that secure the parking brake release handle to the instrument panel.
  4. Remove the screws that secure the bottom of the lower steering column cover to the instrument panel.
  5. Disengage the retaining clip that holds the right side of the lower steering column cover to the instrument panel.
  6. Remove the lower steering column cover from the vehicle.
  7. Remove the mounting screws that hold the upper and lower steering column shrouds and remove the lower steering column shroud.
  8. Install the ignition key and turn the key cylinder to the RUN position. This is important because it will not only aid in removal of the ignition lock, but will also place the socket (in the lock cylinder housing) in proper alignment for the installation of the replacement ignition lock.
  9. Press in the lock cylinder retaining tab and remove the key cylinder (ignition lock).

    4045958.jpg
    Fig. Depress the retaining tab to remove the key cylinder
To install:
  1. Install the ignition key into the replacement ignition lock key cylinder. Turn the key to the RUN position. Depress the ignition lock key cylinder retaining tab.
  2. Align the shaft at the end of the ignition lock cylinder with the socket in the end of the ignition lock cylinder housing.
  3. Align the ignition lock cylinder with the grooves in the lock cylinder housing. Push the ignition lock cylinder into the housing until the retaining tab sticks through the opening in the lock cylinder housing.
  4. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position and remove the key.
  5. Install the lower steering column shroud and install the mounting screws.
  6. Place the lower steering column cover into correct position on the lower instrument panel and engage the clip that secures the right side of the cover to the instrument panel.
  7. Install the lower steering column mounting screws.
  8. Install the mounting screws that hold the parking brake release handle to the instrument panel.
