You might go to the Dodge dealership and give them you vin# of the vehicle, they might be able to cut you a new key. Keo Or maybe give you the code and any locksmith might be able to cut you a key... but the dealer only keeps codes for about 10 (ten) years. So hurry. on the passager side door lock cylinder (in door) is the key code also in most cases
You can replace the ignition lock cylinder in your 1994 Pontiac Firebird without removing the steering will. Remove the retaining ring at the top of the ignition cylinder. The ignition cylinder will slide out.
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.
I have not seen a way to do it without removing the steering wheel (and airbag).
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.
Yes. Just take the U clamp off the bottom of the steering column and it will drop down so you don't need to take off the steering wheel.
the ign switch or the key & tumbler ???
If your battery is fully charged and the connections are clean and tight, the problem is probably that the contacts in the switch are corroded or worn, meaning your ignition switch will have to be replaced.
The steering wheel can change the car's direction of motion, without changing speed.
the ignition actuator is broken, you can turn off the "battery power" by the the ignition actuator rod that leads to the ignition switch, it runs along the top of the steering column under the dash, locate it and pull it towards the steering wheel, this should shut off the power. or you can unhook you battery, but either way you will have to replace the actuator.
"you can't unless you grind off the bolts from the steering column bracket. Most times people just change the whole steering column because its all part of one unit." Actually, you can do it without grinding the bolts - remove the lower trim panel (below the steering wheel) insert your ignition key and turn it to acc on the bottom of the ignition switch, there is a button you have to push in and you can then remove the switch
A tow truck is the easiest way. You could pry out the ignition but yould ruin the steering column in the process.
i know this will sound stupid, but do you have the right key? if so, did somebody recetly break off another key in the ignition switch without you knowing?
You will need to buy or rent or borrow a power steering pulley puller. Trying to remove and replace the pulley without the correct puller will surely damage the pulley and or the pump.
be your self and hang out with them they just might want to become your friends
For a 1988 Mercury Marquis remove bottom shroud from steering column (5 Philips head screws). There is a wire running from the ignition switch to the left side of the steering column; detach it from the coupler (This can be done without a tool). Turn key to ON position until the panel lights come on. There is a small pin near the bottom of the key lock; push it in and pull the ignition switch out (don't panic if the wire seems to be stuck; it will come out). To replace, turn new ignition switch to same position. Push pin on the ignition switch in while sliding it back into the steering column. Reconnect wire and then replace shroud.
On my 2001 Aztek, I could pull the key out when driving. To change the ignition without removing the steering wheel, take the two screws out from underneath the covering behind the wheel. Not the screws on the steering wheel. The cover will lift up but won't come off. Take an Alleen wrench and feel for the hole on top of the ignition (it will be a tight squeeze), and push in. I should also say remove the black or gray cover on the ignition switch (where the key goes in). Once you find the hole and push down on it, the ignition switch will come out.
It is not illegal to drive without power steering. Many people who drive very old cars do not have power steering.
Answer:No need to remove the "lower part of the dash"; simply remove the two screws from the steering column covers and remove the covers.Answer for ignition switch that's a time consuming job. you have to drop the lower part of the dash to get to parts to disconnect the switch and of course take the molding off of the steering wheel.cartalk says: sometimes the steering wheel comes off without a puller...if your lucky..and if your changing the tumbler(key) you'll have to drill...read a manual and your local library may have a free shop manual to peek at..
PUT YOUR KEY IN THE IGNITION AND TURN IT TO THE LEFT WITHOUT PUSHING DOWN ON THE KEY.PUSHING DOWN ON THE KEY LOCKS THE STEERING .
If you are asking about changing the ignition coil that is mounted on top of the distributor cap, it is held in with two screws and can easily be replaced.
No, the ignition is what starts the car.
does add color to water tell about changing matter without changing its shape
you can not do this the ignition needs to be in position 1 then with a small screwdriver press the little button in and ignition will slide out, without key you will need to replace the whole ignition
On my '91, it went like this: Borrow a steering wheel puller. Remove the horn pad, (four screws on the backside of the steering wheel. Remove the wheel. The rest is a cake-walk and simply a matter of Removal and reinstallation. The ignition switch has a tab on the side opposite of the key that is prone to breaking. It's quite doable without spending a hundred dollars an hour if you have a decent socket set and a steering wheel puller in hand.
