I recenlty got a recall on my ignition switch in my 2000 sunfire and I just took it to the dealer and they did it for free.
What, exactly, is the problem?
On the column accross from the key lock cylinder
How is the ignition key switch replaced on the 2000 Pontiac Sunfire? And after replacing the switch would I have to have it Towed to the Pontiac Dealer in order to have the car key programed to the Computer?
No, not if it is not defective. If the ignition switch is defective then that is all you need to replace.
To change the reverse lights on a Pontiac Sunfire you need to locate it on the left side of the transaxle. Then, unplug the electric connector and remove the switch along with the socket.
You can remove your 1997 Pontiac Bonneville ignition switch by removing the retaining ring at the top of the ignition switch. The ignition switch will slide out.
I don't know how to change the ignition switch but I have some advice. Don't screw with the ignition switch, buy the whole steering column. It will be cheaper and easier to change.
under the dash
i would change the electrical part of your ignition switch- i would change the electrical part of your ignition switch-
