Ignition switch going bad can be,hard starting,some things work while others don't and all your fuses look good.For example,not long ago a 1998 s-10 blazer would start,but the electric windows wouldn't work and the interior fan wouldn't blow.The mechanic replaced ignition switch to fix the problem,gas mileage went way up also.Also if you have to hold the ignition key in a certain position to make things work,its probably gone bad.Also any smoke or burnt smell around the steering column is a sure sign of problems. you.
my granddaughter has a 1997 GEO prism LSI. i need to know how to remove the ignition switch
If you know where to put the key in, you know where the ignition switch is... Actually, safe to say you should stay away from it.
The ignition switch is one unit and you replace the entire thing. Do not confuse the ignition switch with the key lock tumbler. They are two different things.
It will not engage and send current to the starter. You will not hear a click or anything else if the ignition switch is bad. With your headlights on when you turn the ignition if the lights dim is it not the ignition switch but more than likely a bad starter. If the lights do not dim it is more than likely the ignition switch.
If the switch fails, however, you won't be able to start your vehicle
It sends a power to the starter relay/solenoid to engauge the starter. Know that the ignition switch is not what you put the key in and turn. That is the lock assembly. The ignition switch is located lower down on the steering column.
You know your ignition switch has gone out when you turn the key and there is no click or any noise at all. If there is a click or other audible noise it is probably the spark plug or something of that sort.
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.

you need to be more specific. i am going to assume you want to know in what position is the ignition switch in lock. usually it is 2 positions back from "run" but it is in whichever position the key comes out of the ignition.
the steering wheel will lock and the key will come out, unless of course the ignition cylinder is broken

ignition is sticking and let me guess it was rolling try a parkin brake I am having the same problem. I don't know the answer yet, but I know that the response above is insulting. I can tell you that it, in my case and possibly yours, is not the key switch, the ignition switch, the solenoid, or the voltage regulator.
LOCKSMITH CHEAP QUICK
Switch ignition on. Connect an LED test light between terminal 7 and earth. After 3 seconds 5 green LEDs will illuminate. Switch ignition off.
