Do you have to go through the steering column to replace an ignition module?

Are you talking about the electronic ignition module or the ignition switch? The ignition module sits in the engine compartment and is part of the ignition system (coil, spark plugs, etc). The answer is no if this about what you're referring. The answer for the ignition switch will depend on the vehicle you have. Some, like late model Fords, you don't. Push in the retaining pin and the ignition switch comes right out (you still need a key though). Others you need to take off the steering wheel to replace the switch.

The ignition lock switch is found under the steering column on a 2004 Honda Civic. Remove the steering column and ignition switch. Loosen the mounting screws that hold the cylinder in place. Pull and replace the lock cylinder.
