There is a solonoid on the starter and the ignition switch is on the steering column.

It is probably caused by the ignition switch internals shifting (I had a similar problem before) and it turned out to be the ignition switch)
one of a few things your starter could be bad bad starter relay bad starter selenoid bad ignition switch
go to thesaabsite.com look up faq's for ignition switch
Not sure, but had to run a wire from the battery to starter and hold it on a starter terminal to turn the starter after replacing it. I think it may be an ignition switch problem but haven't figured out how to get to it yet.
rightside bottom of steering column
I would suspect the ignition switch has failed. This is the ignition switch not the tumbler assembly that you insert the key in.
The ignition switch is defective.
how do you remove the ignition switch on a 1987 firebird
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!
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.
Your ignition switch crapped on you
orange and pink
Check the connection to the headlight switch you can ge the switch at autozone also I changed the MFS switch (turn signal) at the same time
This switch is located above the starter solenoid and the exhaust manifold!
rent a puller from auto zone!!! not hard at all!
follow the wire from the positive side of the battery it will lead you to it
Ignition switch worn out and needs to be replaced? After 20 years
My first guess is that your ignition switch has gone bad, but if you have done work on the engine recently recheck your wiring.
hi there l have a 1989 mustang and mine is in the truck on the driver side behind the trunck liner so look there
Remove the airbag and steering wheel, remove the torx screws from the steering housing and remove the housing, remove the screws from the signal and wiper switch, and remove the screws above the ignition switch and remove the switch. Replace the switch and replace everything in reverse.Ê
