Ignition Switch grey_line.gif Inspect | Test | Replace The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.
NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible.
On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.

The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company.
To replace the switch:

  • Remove the ignition switch wiring harness.
  • Unbolt it from its position.
  • Bolt the new switch into position.
  • Attach the witing harness.

SOURCE: Cannot locate the horn relay on my 85 El Camino.

Found these documents for you.

85 ElCamino1
85 ElCamino2

In fact there IS a horn relay. I have circled the circuit you are looking for in red.
I would search under the dash on driver's side.

Find the Ignition Harness and follow the wires back to the firewall.

Please download and save these pics to your hard drive - as they are stored on my personal FTP storage, and i will remove them in 24 hours.

SOURCE: engine hood wont open hood pull handle pulls out but wont release

Try pulling on the hood release, while someone else lifts the hood. If this doesn't work. You can access the underside of the hood release by taking the front grille out. If you look closely you'll see the retainer screws that can be removed from the front. Once the grille is out or loosened enougt to get your hand in behind, you can release the hood latch from the underside with a screwdriver and then repair the hood latch after you've opened it.

Does my 1985 el camino have to have check engine light


In regions where smog checks are required to register your vehicle, YES. In regions where smog checks are not required, you should fix the CHECK ENGINE light anyway, as it is an important warning of engine issues.
