First depends Do you mean ignition as with a key or as most call key switch ignition,or do you mean the ignition swicth located on steering column. ==well== The key cylinder lock rotates in housing on column,unless of course yours is dash mounted which make things totally easier.Key cylinder is what the key goes into,when turned moves a rod that pushs ignition switch into play,then falls back into run .Both work with each other but when you just put ignition switch hard to judge which you are talking about.Have you gotten the new one yet,also are you replacing because you have lost the key.Those old key cylinders wore out rather easy,would suggest if have the time,to visit a junk yard or 2 see if you can find an old olds key that resembles your old one.But would help if I knew more of why your replacing,and where cylinder is located.

It doesn't have a distributor. It has a Distributorless Ignition System AKA DIS.

im not to sure about the 88, but the 85 (i think are the same)disconect the battery. turn the ignition to run. remove the stearing wheel, then the lock plate behind it (using a lock plate depressor, remove the ring that holds it from popping out) after that, there are a couple screwes that hold in the ignition cylinder-remove them and pull it out with the key. need to know more about delta 88's? hit me up at cardomain@: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3115056

It could either be a bad ignition coil, a bad ignition rotor, a bad ignition cap, a bad ignition control module (if equipped), or a bad coil to cap wire.

My guess would be a weak ignition coil. Same thing happened to my delta. Wouldn't start in cold weather. Changed the ignition coil (60bucks) and it's been starting good ever since.

if your question were a little more detailed it'd be easier to answer your question. try everything. starting with the battery. is there enough juice? check the cables. are they tight? check the ignition switch, fuel pump, listen to the starter for possible issues and check fuses.
