Remove the kick panel covers, the lower portion of the dash, remove the lower half of the covers on the steering column. You will have to cut about 3 or 4 wire ties. you will need a special tool to remove the bolts from the existing ignition switch, (it looks like a reverse torx screw). To remove the other end of the existing Ignition switch cable you will need a nut driver to remove the connector. Remove the two additional connectors on the outside of the connection. Re-install the additional connectors onto the new switch harness. Connect the adaptor and tighten the bolt. install the switch and tie the harness back into place. replace the cover and Dash panels.

Where is the starter ignition switch on a 1990 Chevy Cheyenne 1500?

95 truck manthe ignition switch is the thing you stick your truck key into to start the motor.the starter is under the hood,located at the bottom of the engine.follow the "hot" lead frpm the battery.goes right to the starter motor. Nope, this guy is wrong. The thing you stick your key in is the ignition cylinder or lock. The ignition switch is a separate unit. Both are available for replacement. The cylinder itself is just a mechanical unit which operates the electro-mechanical ignition switch located a bit further down the column.
