Where could you find a diagram for repairing ignition switch on 2000 Chevy Impala with 34 LT engine that remote was lost causing it to lockup?

Ignition switch doesn't lock up if you lose remote. Your problem is a bad ignition lock set and not the ignition switch it self. There are 2 pieces to the set up, 1 is the lock and 2 is the switch. If your key can go in and turn to the "acessories" or "on" position, then it can de replaced rather easily. If your key can't turn at all or won't go in,(lock set) it can still be changed but it's a little harder to do. You can do this with out replacing the ignition switch.

How do you remove and replace the keyed ignition switch on a 1985 Ford Ranger?

Here's hoping that you still have the proper key. With the key in the ignition slot turn to run position. 2. from the bottom of column(directly under switch) insert a drill bit/nail in hole provided. 3. push up with drill bit and pull out key switch. 4. slide replacement switch into hole completely. 5. return new switch to off position, all done (same instructions are found on new switch packaging) ***alternately, if key is lost you will probably need to drill it out(risky and time consuming) I had to do it this way, and then found the original key. I spent about 3 hours. a little at a time to prevent damage to rest of column. good luck.

The only way to remove the lock is with a key, you will need to get a locksmith to make a key to the old ignition so you can install the new lock set. Forcing the lock forward will damage the column and could be very expensive to replace.

How do you program the remote keyless entry for a 1997 Expedition?

Replacing lost transmitters Take all your vehicle's transmitters to your dealer for reprogramming if: ² a transmitter is lost or ² you want to purchase additional transmitters (up to four may be programmed). To reprogram the transmitters, place the key in the ignition and switch from OFF to ON eight times in rapid succession within 10 seconds. After doors lock/unlock, press any button on all transmitters (up to four). When completed, switch the ignition to OFF. All transmitters must be programmed at the same time. My understanding is that 97 ford expeditions are the only year instead of tuurning ignition switch 10 times off and on, you only have to do it 5 times.
