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.

The complete instructions are in Haynes manual #38025 (1420). You actually have to remove the steering wheel first. Amazon should have this cheap.

It could be the ignition switch or a fuse. Maybe a relay.
