How do you change ignition switch a1993 GMC topkick?
Call a locksmith!! I do everything myself but couldn't figure out the lock on my 92 Topkick either. The locksmith removed the steering wheel, swithces etc . He did not remove the column or the surrounding shell. Took about an hour and he charged me $125 which included the new cylinder and key. AAA paid $100 of that. Best $25 I ever spent.
Bought a 68 Impala with no keys want to remove the ignition switch and take it to a locksmith to have a new key made but can't figure out how to remove it?
Answer On a 1968 Chevy (Impala, Caprice, sedan or wagon). first look at the dash, where the key goes. There is a ring with (3) small indentions. This ring has a "special tool" to remove, but if you really aren't making a show car you can use a small hammer & screwdriver. Gently place the screwdriver in slot (1 of 3). Tap lightly in a counter- clockwise direction. It will turn but go slowly! Once it is removed, reach under the dash and pull back. It should remove easly. Then unplug the wire harness and you're done! You have now removed the key & ignition too! Many places like restoration magazines now stock this part. its better to replace than to re-key. The switch on these can go out at any time because of the time in service. Dealers also sell all locks and ignition keys as a set, so it's a good idea to consider. Answer There are many ways to do this one. You can give a locksmith a large deposit and they will lend you their try-out ring. Go through the keys and one will work on that old of a car. The way I did a hundred of that year was to open the driver's door, pull the metal clip out on the edge of the car door that lined up with the key cylinder, and pull the key cylinder out an inch. Take a flash light and find the key code, which will be stamped on the edge, covered in dirt, and usually upside down! Take that key code to a locksmith and he can code cut it for you. Make sure the key works in the door and ignition, then put the door lock back in the door (you did not have to disconnect the linkage to see the code on the side). This is assuming that the locks are original and nothing has been replaced on that year GM. Write down the key code in case you lose it again. If you cannot find the key code on the door lock, gently disconnect it from the door linkage and take that to a locksmith to make a key.

Mine was doing the same thing. A friend told me that he changed his ignition switch and it fixed it. I bought the ignition switch (about $80). Now I can't figure out how to get it out. Got some very small star head bolts in it and also looks like the key switch needs to come out but can't figure it out.

They make something called a slim jim, that slides down in between the window, and the door, and will trip the lock. You can get these at an auto parts store, but will have to figure out how to use it. You could call a local towing company. They usually have them, and the experience to know how to use them. Or, a locksmith, can cut a key. If you go to your local GM dealership, they can usually cut one from the vin, but, will want to see a registration, which is probably locked in the car. A locksmith can by pass all of this for you.
