If you're talking about the starter solenoid, it is located on the driver's side inner fender. It is just forward of the shock tower and ignition coil.

The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod. NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible. On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company. To replace the switch: * Remove the ignition switch wiring harness. * Unbolt it from its position. * Bolt the new switch into position. * Attach the witing harness.

Hi Ed, The normal way to hot wire an auto ignition, has always been to clip a wire to the positive-post on the battery and then run the lead to the positive-post on the ignition-coil. Then, if you have a remote starter switch, simply crank the engine and it will start. If you do not have a remote starter switch, take a short screw-driver, (or something metal), and cross the two posts on the starter solenoid and crank the engine to start. To shut the ignition hotwire off, simply disconnect at the battery. Thats the simple and easy way. Of course, if you're gonna really fix the thing, you'll need to get into the main ignition switch, etc, etc,...understand? Hot-wireing is just a short term thing! Also, make sure you have the proper AUTHORITY to do all of this!

Where is the ignition starter switch located on a 1987 Dodge truck?

The ignition switch is located on top of the steering column when you remove the two nuts, one per side, and drop it down. The tilt column has this, but the fixed column (non-tilted) igintion lock has a harness coming out of the switch and runs through the column, then plugs into the harness under the dash. That's how I can tell the difference between the two.
