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.

Fuse Link @ starter--- Ignition Switch------- Netural Saftey Switch- Bad ignition switch, or bad neutral safety switch.

It is located by the ignition switch on the right side of the steering column.

Generally the problem is either a defective neutral safety switch or a bad ignition switch (not ignition key lock).

I am no expert, but I recently found what I think is the back up light switch for my 85 vanagon w/ manual transmission. I didn't have another to replace it with and test it, however it is relatively easy to get to and try. Looking from the rear, on the left hand front of the transmission you'll find two wires that lead to a two pronged mechanical pressure switch. Unscrew it from the transmission. Swap the wires and install the replacement.

either the ignition switch or the lock cylinder itself is bad. I would change both and check the rod that goes into the switch to make sure it is not binding up

you take the two mounting bolts off of the bracket and you pullit off then you put the new switch on the same way you took it off

User Avatar

To make it easy yes, otherwise you have to drill out the old one.

It can cause the ignition lock cylinder to not turn. If it turns then the key is not why it will not start. Look into the ignition switch, starter, battery, or connections.

User Avatar

you have to remove the steering wheel and the turn signal. this requires special tools that can be purchased or rented cheaply.

Ignition switch should be connected to a rod that runs down the steering column to the actual switch at the lower end of the column. Check to see if this rod has become disconnected or broken

User Avatar

there should be a flat switch beside the cover for the gas cap, and the ignition switch. That is your choke. Sticking up is full choke, down is choke off.

I had a similar problem on a Ford truck and it turned out to be the ignition switch. The truck would start just fine but when I released the ignition key the truck would die. I replaced the switch and problem was gone.
