hey this is ed and i can help you with this if you are interested.
ok! what do you need from me
put the steering wheel all the way back toward the seat, and there is a black plastic screw on the cover on top of and on bottom on the plastic cover that goes around the steering column, right at the steering wheel. remove these screws, pop the covers off, and you will see the electrical portion of the ignition switch on the left hand side of the column. there is a tab sticking out of it, and slowly pry it out, and the plug will come off the electrical portion of the switch. once you have this done, there are two screw holes on the electrical portion of the switch, usually there is some red paint covering them. clean the paint off, and with a small flat head remove the electrical portion of the switch. once you have done this plug it back into the electrical plug, and with a flat head screwdriver you can turn the underneath side of the switch there is a T in it where it goes on to the mechanical portion of the switch. i am sending you a link also. thanks in advance ed.
