Answers :

The switch is a rectangle box mounted on the bottom of the steering column.
There is a rod that travels up the column to the key lock.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering wheel.
  3. As necessary, remove all under dash panels in order to gain access to the ignition switch.
  4. As necessary, lower the steering column to gain working clearance.
  5. Disconnect the ignition switch electrical connectors.
  6. Remove the ignition switch retaining screws from the studs. Disengage the ignition switch from switch rod. Remove the switch from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the lock cylinder in the LOCK position.
  2. To set the switch, position a wire in the opening in the outer surface of the switch through its positions until the wire drops down into the slot.
The slot is in the bottom of the switch where the rod must be inserted to allow full movement through the switch positions.
  1. Position the ignition switch on the column studs and over the actuating rod. Torque the retaining nuts to 40-64 inch lbs. (4.5-7.2 Nm).
  2. Remove the wire from the slot in the housing. Continue the installation in the reverse order of the removal procedure.

I need to remove the ignition switch from a Ford F-150. The ignition key is missing. Acting on the advice of a locksmith, I was advised to drill through the wafers in the lock in order to turn it to the ''On'' position, however the cylinder still won't, even under extreme pressure.

Hi, Need a quick tutorial on replacing the ignition switch for a '98 Nissan Frontier. One day the truck kept running with the key removed.

Power is on all the time with or without the key in the ignition. There are no positions (ie...accessories, on, start). When the key is inserted it moves freely in all positions.
