How to Replace ingnitionTo replace the ingition switch it is real easy. First you must remove the steering wheel with a steering wheel puller. Then you remove the plastic cover that protects the steering coloum. then remove the four way flashers switch with a Phillips screw. back inside the coloum remove the the other screw from the turn signal arm screw. after that you will see 3 more Phillips screws remove them and carfully remove the plastic turn signal gears. once that is done you will either see a torqes screw or a Phillips screw remove that and pull the ignition out and put the new once in and reverse the instruction to put it back together.

I changed the doors on my 89 caprice.To change the electric switch you have to pull most of the interior panel loose from the door to get at the back of the switch .there was a blue knob on the back of the switch and I had to twist/pull this off and then pull the plug off of the switch.hope this helps.

The fan switch should be on the driver's side, screws into the radiator. Should be two wires.

the thick cable goes to the battery positive terminal . one thin wire goes to ignition switch

Checked to see if your steering wheel is locked. If not, then your problem is the tumblers. Replace the mechinical ignition switch. Cause- Having too many keys hanging with the ignition key.

In my case it was the ignition switch itself had overheated and seized up. Replace the switch (have to lower the column, disconnect the wiring plug from the switch, and remove/replace the switch.) Clean all connections to the switch, make sure they're connected solidly and not heating up again.

you have a short or disconnected wire in the switch. you may need to replace your ignition switch. i have a 89 jeep and it was doin the same thing: it was the ignition module If one of the wires gets disconnected from the ballast resistor it will do the same thing.

In the dash, passenger side, behind the glove box.
