The first thing you have to have is the key. Without it you cannot release the spring loaded lock the front side of the ignition switch. After you remove the plastic cover of the steering column, you have to revove the metal clip right under where the key goes in. after that there is a metal plate held on by two torx screws. This plate is in on the front side of the ignition switch, it holds in a small plastic clip that is holding the other side of the switch. I pulled this clip all the way out, but you may be able to get it out far enough to remove the switch without taking off the metal plate. If not, you will need to remove the two screws, the metal plate, and then the plastic clip. After that, turn the key, use a Allen wrench to depress the spring loaded lock, you may have to mess with the position of the key to get it in the right place. When you do get the spring loaded lock to depress, the switch will come right out.
just so you know,the pin is on the back side of lock housing.rectangle hole.

remove the steering wheel with special tools and then the turn signal arm and switch assembly plate to expose the ignition switch lock bolt use some fingernail polish to mark the positions of anything you remove.
It could be a problem with the ABS system, but if it just comes on by itself for no apparent reason, it may be the ignition switch.

Remove the steering wheel and lock plate then the turn signal switch and key reminder contacts, then a screw that runs right against the lock cylinder and pull it out. You need a puller for the steeering wheel and a spring compressor fot the lock plate available to rent at most parts stores,
