Best Answer

disconnect battery, remove the panel underneath the the steering column, disconnect airbag- yellow clip. remove the plastic housing over steering wheel, turn key to ACC position, on the top and to the right side of the switch there is a small hole with a button in it, press the button and the switch should slide right out. To replace the new one, make sure key is turned to the ACC position and everything will line up.

You replace the valve seals on a 1996 Saturn SL1 by removing all of the hardware to get to the valves, unseating them, cleaning them, and sliding the new valve gaskets on. In order to do this you should consider getting a good Chiltons or other repair manual for your make, model, year, and engine.

What would cause white smoke to come from the ignition switch and dash board on a 1997 Saturn SL1 Now the car will not start just cranks?

Unfortuneately the most likely (only) problem is the ignition switch shorted internally If you look at the wires going into the switch you will most likely see that a black wire is melted This is a ground wire for the switch All the insulation may be bubbled or melted right off You need a switch and that wire replaced if you see this. Either way i think you need a switch
