Customer Question

I got the old switch off but for a cable that runs down to the fire wall it doesn't want to come off the old switch
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with Chevy. The Chevy Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: It's a cable that is attached to the bottom of the old switch and goes on the new one the cable has a red plastic piece to can't get it to come loose
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: Pushing it through the back pulling it the cable has a elect plug I unplugged it still won't come out
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Chevy Mechanic should know about your Chevy?
Customer: The key wouldn't turn tried to just buy the tumbler with keys but not sold that way just need to tell me how to get cable out
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chevy Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

So can u help me figure my problem out
Expert:  Roy Scarlett replied 1 year ago.
Are you talking about the wires connected to the ignition lock cylinder? If so the wires do not disconnect from the switch they have to be disconnected at the other end.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The pic doesn't show the cable I'm wanting to take off and if the cable has to b disconnected at the other end it still has to come off the switch

Sorry I don't need ur help
Expert:  Roy Scarlett replied 1 year ago.
I am really sorry, my internet went down and I had trouble getting it back up. I had done some research prior and as I thought the other end, not the key, is just in a bushing and should come out. Sometimes it takes a little jiggling.

Don't need ur help any more stop texting me no more emails plez
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 1 year ago.
to get that cable out the switch has to be in the run position thats all. Put in key turn to run and remove cable.
