Question about 1987 Dodge Ram Maxivan
Tilt or non tilt the procedure is the same. Check around the barell their should be a small hole with a pin in it. Put the key in the ignition and with a small screwdriver push in the pin then slide out the switch. The pin won't go in without the key in the switch. If the pin won't go in with the key in the switch turn the key one position and try again then another until the pin pushes for you. If you have lost the key then its not so simple because you will need to bore out the pin and the problem with this is the metal in the pin is harder than the metal in the barell so the drillbit will slide to the softer metal.

SOURCE: neutral ignition switch
automatic or stick? makes a difference, if it's a stick it's on the chutch pedal if it's an automatic it's on the transmisson where the linkage hooks up to the shifter, remove the linkage by removing the nut that hold the shifter on then remove the screws that hold the safety netural backup light switch on be sure you have the E brake on before removing and chalk the wheels remove the switch and go to the parts store and buy a new switch and replace you will have to disconnect the wire harness connted to the switch as well it is a short wire with 4 wire or sometimes 5 on it when installing the new switch be sure to move the new switch to the forward postion so that it set on the can correctly you can turn the inside ring with your fingers to move it once it is lined up replace hold down screws and replace linkage nut.
