This is a very daunting task not to be taken by the average person. Even if you could take the column out I would recommend a shop. Possibly a cheaper way is to get one from a salvage yard and I do mean a whole column. This is outrageous but these columns are far to meticulous to do. Can call a roving locksmith to do it maybe and he may say key cylinder yes, ignition no.

After changing the starter and alternator and installed a new ignition switch my 1997 Nissan p/u started up fine. Drove it around town, stopped, turned off the engine and it started again right away. Drove it home, parked and turned off the engine then started it up again. No problem. However, the very next day the truck wouldn't start; not even a click. Installed a new battery still won't start.

My 95 nissan maxima won't start. I have been having an issue with it not starting or delaying to start. We changed the battery and then it wouldn't start completely...we heard a click. I waited about an hour or two. It is freezing outside. I just went to try to start it and now it turned over. It didn't start but it turned over. I am wondering if you think this could be an ignition switch from what I have been reading it sounds like it. I am worried it could be the starter or solenoid.
