Hello,

 

Are you referring to the lock cylinder for the key or the electrical switch itself?

Yes we have the cylinder with the key out...the root of the problem was the car would not start so lots of people gave us bunches of advice and not it REALLY wont start so we are trying to get back to square 1

Thanks,

 

You have to turn the cylinder counter clockwise about 5 degrees when inserting it. Below are the remove and install instructions.
