If you know where to put the key in, you know where the ignition switch is... Actually, safe to say you should stay away from it.
I don't know how to change the ignition switch but I have some advice. Don't screw with the ignition switch, buy the whole steering column. It will be cheaper and easier to change.
Need to know what year the S-10 is.
you cant does it click when you switch on ignition if not change it.
my granddaughter has a 1997 GEO prism LSI. i need to know how to remove the ignition switch
The ignition switch is one unit and you replace the entire thing. Do not confuse the ignition switch with the key lock tumbler. They are two different things.
It will not engage and send current to the starter. You will not hear a click or anything else if the ignition switch is bad. With your headlights on when you turn the ignition if the lights dim is it not the ignition switch but more than likely a bad starter. If the lights do not dim it is more than likely the ignition switch.
If the switch fails, however, you won't be able to start your vehicle
It sends a power to the starter relay/solenoid to engauge the starter. Know that the ignition switch is not what you put the key in and turn. That is the lock assembly. The ignition switch is located lower down on the steering column.
You know your ignition switch has gone out when you turn the key and there is no click or any noise at all. If there is a click or other audible noise it is probably the spark plug or something of that sort.
i do not know go to a car stereo install ... store
