Did you pull the steering wheel off with a puller. So you are looking at the turn signal switch? If so then the turn signal switch has i think 2-3 screws to get off. you just want to move that so you can get to the set screw for the switch. the switch is only held in with one long set screw. removeing that you should be able to pull the cylinder right out. Hope that helps

It's all part of the ignition switch assembly. The "Click" is usually the steering wheel lock pin dropping into place.

To remove the igniton lock, remove the steering wheel and turn signal switch housing. From there you will be able to see the lock which holds the ignition lock into place. slide a screwdriver into the slot and apply pressure. The igntion lock can then be pulled out.

My 2000 Catera does the same and that is why I am here today searching for suspicion is the immobilizer may be shutting off the fuel and igntion and that module I have yet to find................on another discussion it was said to be in the steering columbe under the lock barrell

this is real fun. first get to operating temp then remove fan shroud and fan then power steering pump just set it off to side then use timing light to check timing you have to remove all this because you cant see the marks cause the cowl is in the way.

follow the middle wire on your distrbuter cap. or are you looking for the dme? that's under the passenger floor carpet.

impala cranking but not starting; replaced fuses, relays, fuel pump and igntion coils.

Went to home depot, had a key made for a dollar. Works great in my 2003 impala, 3.4.

Remove the plastic shroud from the steering column by removing its screws in the holes underneath first, and then you look under the steering column near the igntion lock (probably half way back down the length of the lock) for the location of a small hole that you would put an icepick into,, and when you have the lock picked and turned 1/3 to the right (towards dash) you push up in the hole with the icepick to push in the set pin located in the lock-then you pull out the lock. If you cant do this you will have to very, very gently drillout the lock by driling straight into the keyway bypassing two small hardened steel pins in it. If you do this be very careful not to damage any more of the lock center than you have to, or it can damage the outer casing of the stering column lock retaining mount and destroy it.

Its the 1st igntion coil. V8 have distrubutors which is kinda the same your spark plug wires hook up to them.

The spark plugs are located under each igntion coil. The coils are located under the plastic engine cover with the 'i-VTEC' logo.

A coil pack assembly is a coil that controls 4 or more cylinder using separate igntion wires for each. On a Taurus it will control the 6 cylinders.

It's not supposed to , but I have noticed it will happen on my Ford Explorer once in a while and I have to insert the ignition key and then remove it again

It probably wasn't the ends to begin with. Start looking for loose wires starting with the ends if the battery tested good.

If the immobilizer was your problem the car will start and die within a second or two. You cannot disarm the immobilizer, There is chip in the key and an antenna around your ignition switch. Disarming the immoblizer is ZIP tieing a key to your steering column so the car thinks the right key is always there. Then your neighborhood thief can shove a screwdriver in your ignition and the car will start.You have a different problem going on. Like a bad igntion switch.SourceVolkswagen Mechanic 21 years

blue smoke is caused by oil burning in the igntion chamber. oil gets there thru bad oil rings on pistons,or bad valve stem seals in the head,

Try Wiggling the steering wheel while you turn the key. However, if that does not work it could be one of multiple problems. I have a Saturn 2002 L100, and just the other day I had the same problem. I tried to wiggle the steering wheel for hours and the key wouldn't budge. I called a locksmith, got them to make another key, yet that did not solve the whole problem. They had to take out my ignition and clean it because over the years, with the numerous times I had put my key in the ignition it got wore out and started to scrape metal shavings into the igntion. All of this would then be the cause of the rotater in the ignition being jammed and all they had to do was clean it, and it cost 100 dollars.
