you have to go under the dash and take out the steering column. and the ignition switch should have a wire going down to the bottom of the column coming from the ignition lock.

The ignition lock is where you put the key. The ignition switch is located on the top of the steering column directly above the brake pedal.

Ignition relay is probably shot. It is in the power distribution block in the motor comprtment.


No! The ECM is the Electronic Control Module (Computer), sometimes called ECU, Electronic Control Unit. The ignition switch is just that, the switch that controls the engine ignition, the power to the starter, starting and shutting the engine off, and power to the accessories.

I believe you need to pull the steering wheel off and get in the steering column that way. I had this done on a previous car, (expensive) so this time I just hot wired to the starter and added a tago switch.

I suggest that you take it to the garage since you can deploy the air bag accidentally. 1990 with airbags? My 1990 does not have an airbag. I suggest removing the steering wheel. Then remove the turn signal assembly. There should be 1 or 2 screws holding the switch in place.

Replacing the ignition switch is very simple. When you purchase the new switch it will give you photos adn simple instruction to follow. Youy will need some toolls. Good luck and God bless you. lemon Pro

It is very possibly the ignition switch but there are certainly other possibilities as well. In any case, you'll need to learn some electrical diagnostic skills. The ignition switch appears faulty.

It doesn't have one, it has a switch on the clutch pedal. It also has an interlock switch on the dash, turn the ignition switch on and press the interlock switch and it will bypass the clutch switch.

on the ignition switch down by the hazard light control you will see a pin hole turn the lock cylinder to run push a small punch eighth inch iI think may bre smaller.then you will be able to slide the cylinder out may have to pry a little. If you don't have the key you will have to drill the pin out.
