The Starter switch is on the TOP of the steering colume.There is a small amount of adjustment on it-The key switch is JUST that -the switch is about a foot down from the steering wheel-a metal rod works the switch.

Do you take the steering wheel off to get to the ignition

You will have to remove the steering wheel and everythin that surrounds the steering column in order to get the ignition switch out. I would suggest getting a good repair manual as this is not an easy process to describe without pictures and such.

One to repair an ignition switch on your Astro Van is buy a replacement steering column from a local salvage yard including the ignition key, and replace the whole steering column. RC Houston, TX

If the steering column is broken on a 1989 Firebird, it may have to be taken apart to be repaired. If it is only the ignition that the thieves damaged, a new ignition can be installed.

This will depend on what repair or adjustment got it off centre.The steering wheel centre is set at the factory to the centre of the steering box and this can be critical to some safety related items:Turning circlePlay in the steering going down the road, this can lead to vibrations SERVER ENOUGH TO WEAR AND DAMAGE COMPONENTS.The ability of the driver to maintain his position in the lane.So was the steering wheel off to repair the steering column and incorrectly installed? Remove and reinstall the wheel correctlyWas a piece of the steering linkage repaired or replaced: Then adjust the portion of the linkage correctlyIf this has started without a previous repair find out what is unsafe and faulty in the system and repair it.

You cant. You have to replace the key lock. Can be a slightly involved process. You have to take the steering wheel off, lock spring, and other things to get to it. I recomend on this repair going to a repair shop. This is what I did, and I am glad I did.

The steering column on a vehicle can be replaced. A repair book for the vehicle make and model instructs how to repair the issue. This is considered a minor repair but if a person has no experience fixing a steering column, it may be best to have the job done by a professional.

The threads in a steering knuckle can be repaired by take the steering knuckle to a machine shop and they can repair the threads. It would probably be better and more economical to get another one from the boneyard.

i had to replace the ignition switch on my 94 sunbird 2 weeks ago...mine has no airbag, and hopefully for this repair yours doesnt either. you have to remove the steering wheel. on the ignition switch there is a bolt that simply screws out. i dont think i had to remove anything else...maybe the turn signal switch, but nothing major. remove the ignition switch, and replace with the new one. line up the bolt holes, and replace bolt. put steering wheel back on, and youre done.

this is not for a novice, especially if you car is equipped with tilt steering, but can be accomplished if you follow the instructions on the repair guide that comes with the new ignition lock cylinder ( make sure when purchasing that they are included). you may need to buy / rent a spring compressor kit, especially made for small springs, and a steering wheel puller.

If the lock cylinder is faulty, the entire steering column lock assembly will have to be replaced. reference " Haynes Repair Manual"

This was a repair available via a recall repair from Chevy involving a tailgate problem.
