I just today, 11/25/2005, changed an ignition switch on a 1981 Ford F150 that has only 63,000 miles. It took less than 2 minutes. Under the ignition switch there is a small 1/8" hole that has a pin in it. It is spring loaded. Turn the ignition almost to the start position and depress the pin into the column. Pull the ignition switch straight out. Look down into the cavity where the switch came out and notice the 3/32" channel that is in the 2:00 position on the cavity. Make sure to line up the new switch so that the square male channel slids into the female walls inside the column. Just slide the new switch in fully and it will snap into place when the spring loaded pin hits the sweet spot. No problems with the starting of the engine and you are ready to go.
How do remove and replace the ignition switch of a 1983 Oldsmobile Regency?
You have to remove it gently and go to auto zone and turn it in
It would have electronic ignition, no points.
You will more than likely have to get a new ignition and key for it.

Im installing a 1983 2.3 red block into a 1979 242. I need a ignition wiring road map Modified schematic. Bkindschy@yahoo.com
wires on the starter are criss crossed
check that switch it's probably defective or for some reason its staying "open" it may simply be faulty wiring.
1983 doesnt have a crankshaft position sensor. you have an ignition module located on the side of the distributor.
fuse link wire on 1983 crown Victoria that goes to fuel pump was getting hot with ignition switch off?
A 1983 Toyota Corolla was equipped with electronic ignition system, therefore it does not have points. However, if the engine has been modified such that the car DOES have a point-type ignition system, the typical point gap for an earlier model (i.e. years 1974-1977) would be .018"
My best guess would be on Ebay. I have found many parts for my 1991 190E 2.6L and for my 1983 240D 2.4L. If that doesn't help, try to google "1961 190D ignition switch" That might help also. I hope this helped!
Replace just the steering lock unit. The tumblers are old, and they need to be replaces. After replacing the lock, go to a locksmith, and have him re-key the doors to match your new ignition lock.

remove the steering column cover (few screws on underside, then pop appart) unmount the bracket from arround the steering column, the ignition simply unplugs on the back.
