Question about Car Amplifiers
I have a 1990 honda accord that was stolen and i recently bought it a few weeks ago. I bought a new ignition switch and I am trying totak e the old one out however I have taken down the whole steering column including the steering wheel. Basically I need to know how to take out the old one with out the key because you are suppose to have a key for the on off position and push the pin and its suppose to pop off but without the key I am stuck on how to get it off. Thank you
This is a very simple fix. NO DRILLING ANYTHING!! The switch mounts to the column shaft by two bolts that are designed to have the heads twist off at a certain torque spec. (Its a security thing) You simply have to look at the column shaft above the ignition tumbler and you will find a metal band with two rounded bolts that hold it to the shaft. Take a chisel (sharp) and a small hammer and remove the rounded bolts. They are not very tight, and it won't be hard to get them out. Put your ignition switch onto the new tumbler and bolt back to the column with new security bolts (from the dealer) or use 2 allen head bolts from the local hardware store. You have to use allen head bolts due to clearance reasons. If you opt for the proper bolts to put back in, you will have to have them ordered from a honda dealer as that is not a normal in stock item, but they are cheap. Easy fix....

I've had to remove many damaged lock cylinders, and the best way is to drill it out. if you can dig out most of the pins with the drill bit and maybe a screwdriver, you should be able to turn it to push in the lock pin and remove, or drill through to where the lock pin goes and pull it out from the inside. DO NOT drill too far, though, or else you may have to replace a lot more than you want to. Hope this helps.

You need to check the DC voltage across the B+ and ground terminals. You also need to check the DC voltage across the remote and ground terminals. If the voltage is less than 11 volts, you need to check the B+ supply and remote wiring for breaks or open fuses. You should also check the ground connection to confirm that it's not loose.
If the voltage is OK, the output transistors are likely shorted.
