I cannot copy and paste this procedure from any manual as it is against copy write laws. However, I can tell how to do this job. The ignition cylinder lock assembly gets replaced as a whole entire unit. This contains the pass lock sensor. You will need to remove the instrument cluster itself and then you will be able to gain access to this ignition switch lock cylinder and replace it.

I hope this helps!

I know.. some Experts will and some Experts wont. Most Experts are doing it illegally and some have paid thousands of dollars to re publish or copy and paste the material.

Relist: Answer quality.
Two issues: 1- I have never had any mechanic have an issue with sending me a copy of the location of a part if it would help. 2- The answer(comments) were very uninforming, they told me nothing.

Thanks Dave. I dont see the passlock sensor or the ignition lock cylinder. Is this the right schematic for replacing the sensor and the ignition lock cylinder because I dont find them on the schematic you sent. Please advise. Are they called something else?
