If you are speaking of the "keyed" switch and not the electric column switch, it is not so bad, but I am a locksmith and my point of view may be a bit skewed. Question 1: Is the steering column round, if not ignore the following and call me @ 610.802.0802. If so you have it easy. You will need two "specific" tools available at your local autoparts store. A lockring compressor and a wheel puller. WITHOUT REMOVING THE COLUMN, follow the first few steps at this site I have listed (you will not have to unscrew the metal plate. It will be plastic and will pop right off.) When you get to the step where it says remove the key buzzer contacts, after removing this contact, this is where these instructions end for you. DO NOT FOLLOW ANY FURTHER. Behind this buzzer tab you will see a small set-screw. 7mm., 3/16, or Torx 15 or 20. Remove this screw and the cylinder will slide right out! Reverse the steps and you are done! Post: In the final picture, the one with the key buzzer, it shows three bolts that come out.....NOT FOR IGNITION REMOVAL, so do not do so!

Begin by removing the retaining ring at the top of your 1990 Pontiac Bonneville ignition switch. The ignition switch will slide out. Remove the wiring harness from the end of the ignition switch. Reverse the process to install your new ignition switch.

how do you remove the ignition switch on a 1990 chevy half ton pick-up?

You have to take apart the steering column, remove the steering wheel, remove the ignition switch, and it's a pain in the butt.

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.

Bad ignition switch or wrong key.Just replace with new switch about $10.00 NAPA

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.

NO, there is no coalition between the ignition switch and the transmission. The ignition switch does 2 things. Turns on power to the electrical system for the engine and supplies power to the starter during start-up.

Disconnect your battery ground. Take off the plastic covers, then remove the steering wheel,follow the wiring harness from the switch to the connector under the dash and unplug it. Remove the screw holding it in and pull the switch out. Make sure to align the slot in the switch with the tab on the lock cylinder.

might be something with starter/solenoid assembly or the crank wire circuit coming from the ignition switch.

Your brake light ignition switch should be replaced. It works your brake lights and ignition switch, so you do need it. It only costs about $7 dollars.

You have an open question as to what you are asking. Are you referring to the key and tumbler assembly or the actual ignition switch meaning the electrical part? If you mean the key and tumbler then you need to have a locksmith do it or a repair shop as the key is coded for your car. If you are referring to the switch then in that case you will need special tools to remove it.

no switch,fan control is determined by the engine control unit with input from the coolant sensor

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

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.

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.

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.
