Customer: replied 4 years ago.
no not the ignition switch i need to know the name of the part in between the ignition switch and ignition lock cylinder
Expert:  Tom replied 4 years ago.
The ignition cylinder goes right into the electrical part of the switch these are the only 2 parts . What's the problem you are having?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
in my truck there is a piece of metal part that goes in beteen the 2 parts and it has broken and i need to buy a new one but don't know the name of it so i am having trouble
Expert:  Tom replied 4 years ago.
That is part of the if ignition cylinder itself . What is the issue starts then stalls , key will not turn. Can you post a picture of the piece you need .
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
i had to drill out old ignition lock cylinder because i had lost the keys to the truck and while i was doing so the part broke
Expert:  Tom replied 4 years ago.
Ok that's not a separate part that's part of the ignition switch itself . That parts not available separate . So you reader the cylinder then not the actual switch ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
there is a separate part that controls the steering wheel lock mechanism in between the ignition lock cylinder and the ignition switch
Expert:  Tom replied 4 years ago.
Yes the part that gets attached to the column and controls the steering lock is part of the complete ignition switch . The cylinder and electrical part you can get separate.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
what do you mean complete ignition switch?
-because i have the ignition lock cylinder out
-the ignition switch in the back is off
-and there is a metal part in between the 2 that controls the locking mechanism and it is broke
Expert:  Tom replied 4 years ago.
Yes that's the part that gets attached to the steering column that locks the wheel correct ? That would be complete ignition switch that includes the electrical part and the cylinder all one piece. You can not get the ignition switch lock separate unless possibly from a salvage yard .
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
i looked for it online and the ignition switch DOES Not come with the part i need
Expert:  Tom replied 4 years ago.
Yes that's shows just the electrical part . You want the ignition switch body that connects to the steering column . If this is what you are looking for the correct name is XXXXX XXXXX switch body and an auto parts store or dealer should have this . Also any local salvage yard you can get it from. This is the part location I described correct?
