You willneed to remove the handlebars ,then you will need to remove the top plate of the steering head(you should see the top of the fork legs here)undo the clamps around the fork legs,undo the top nut of the steering head bearing,then carefully remove the top plate of the steering head,the ignition switch is centrally mounted but screwed in from the back,i normally place a fairly heavy piece of material over the painted tank surfaces to protect them as it is very easy to damage them even if you are being carefull..hope this helps,job sounds complicated but is actually very easy,should be able to do it in less than an hour,,,cheers

Ignition switch diagram


What you really want is a series of photos or video to show you how to do this. I believe Advance and possibly Autozone have CD's on different topics for around $7.50 to $9.99 for each Series. There are also Repair Manuals with photos.

Since the Diagrams show the wire routing, it will not help you to plug or unplug the socket connectors which contain all of the wires. You may need to remove the plastic cover on the steering column and there can be special tools to fit the Security ends found on the mounting bolts.

You will have to disconnect and then reconnect the NEG battery terminal several times to release some electric catches in the Interlock system. Before removing the Ignition switch, make sure the battery is still disconnected.

You may have better luck on the internet using a Browser search for such photos. There are a few Experts here at FixYa with better resources and experience at sending Facebook and other Media through our site. Our site limits what fits inside our answer box and some can send compressed data which I can not do.

If you reattempt to enter a problem with Fixya, then retitle your request for the exact info which you want. Installation photos for installing an Ignitionswitch on your exact modelof vehicle. This way you should get the best answer.

When hooking up both battery post the starter turns over without turning over the ignition switch


You either have a faulty Solenoid or short or what I would check first is the ignition switch. Pull the ignition switch off and then connect the Battery, if the problem repeats then you have a short you need to look for, if it doesn't you will have to replace the ignition switch. There is a slim chance that this is a relay problem in the power Distribution box with a relay being stuck open but again, remove the ignition relay and see if the problem persist, if it doesn't replace the relay and you should be fixed. I would start with the ignition switch though.

Key broke in ignition, would to replace ignition with new cost to expencive from dealers would like to do this myself ........need some help or a instaltion manual 2005 chevy clbolt


The first time I did this I went to the local auto parts store and bought the shop manual for the car, which shows how to remove and replace ignition switch. (manual was around $25) Then I went to auto wrecker parts yard where they left ignition keys in the car, and got practice by removing the ignition from the donor car. Next head back home to replace your old ignition switch. This is cheapest way to do it yourself.

OK, NOW THAT I THINK THE SWITCH IS BAD IN MY 1998 CADILLAC CATERA, HOW EXACTLY DOES A PERSON CHANGE IT OUT. I CAN GET THE SWITCH FROM A LOCAL AUTO PARTS STORE. I HAVE LOOKED FOR A REPAIR MANUAL, BUT SO...


I assume your talking about ignition, you have to remove air bag and steering wheel to get to pin for ignition switch. If you don't feel confident removing the airbag then don't. Once air bag is removed all you need is steering wheel gear puller.
