Should be able to without taking the entire steering wheel off. Next time call a locksmith and have them cut a new key on site. Save you a big trouble later

Long in to mitchell's DIY and read.
btw most modern car like this , the switch is made to be as hard as possible to remove. not by accident, its law here in usa
and has many antitheft blocking methods every newer year.
so,, Ill read the book just for you, now.
2001 USA rodeo, no where else !
non sport model, (wild guessing that.)
I wonder, why not take off the covers and look.
see if it can be removed after the steering anti-theft collar security bolts are remove (no fun that)
that is what I do, I LOOK first then wonder. saves a ton of work.
that. 2 plastic covers off. and gander. at it.
step one is defeat air bags now.. do not risk life on these BAGS.
the shop manual tells you how,
some guys chop up parts to avoid this, I DONT.
here is the spoon fed words. out of FSM
if you can read this, you learn fast lots of pitfalls. added to your first.

  1. Turn the steering wheel so that the vehicle's wheels are pointing straight ahead.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK.
  3. Disconnect the negative battery cable, and wait at least 5 minutes. (so the bad modules can go to safe mode)
  4. Disconnect the yellow 2-way SRS connector located under the steering column. (yellow are all BAG colors and danger)
    WARNING The wheels of the vehicle must be straight ahead and the steering column in the "LOCK" position before disconnecting the steering wheel. Failure to do so will cause the coil assembly to become uncentered which will cause damage to the coil spring assembly.
  5. Remove the engine hood opening lever and steering lower cover.
  6. Remove driver knee bolster (reinforcement).
  7. Loosen the inflator module fixing bolt from behind the steering wheel assembly using a Torx® driver or equivalent until the inflator module can be released from steering assembly.
  8. 1. Inflator module 2. Steering wheel 3. Steering column cover 4. Combination switch and SRS coil assembly 5. Snap ring 6. Cushion rubber 7. Lock cylinder assembly 8. Instrument panel lower cover 9. Driver knee bolster (reinforcement) 10. Shift lock cable (for A/T) Click to Enlarge
  9. Disconnect the yellow 2-way SRS connector and horn lead located behind the inflator module
  10. Apply a setting mark (1) across the steering wheel and shaft so parts can be reassembled in their original position.
  11. Apply a setting mark (1) across the steering wheel and shaft so parts can be reassembled in their original position, then remove steering wheel
    Move the front wheels to the straight ahead position, then use steering wheel remover J-29752 to remove the steering wheel.
  12. Move the front wheels to the straight ahead position, then use steering wheel remover J-29752 to remove the steering wheel WARNING Never apply force to the steering wheel in direction of the shaft by using a hammer or other impact tools in an attempt to remove the steering wheel. The steering shaft is designed as an energy absorbing unit. Remove steering column cover.
  13. 12. Disconnect the wiring harness connectors located under the steering column.
  14. Remove the combination switch assembly with SRS coil.
    NOTE The SRS coil is a part of the combination switch assembly, which can not be replaced separately. Therefore, be sure not to remove the SRS coil from the combination switch assembly.
  15. Remove snap ring.
  16. Remove the rubber cushion.
  17. Remove shift lock cable (for A/T).
  18. Disconnect the starter switch harness connector located under the steering column then remove lock cylinder assembly.
end , im NOT posting the wall of text to install.ever.
go to mitchells' DIY and read like everyone else does.

we make our own pullers, so never need to buy them.
making pullers is part of any job.


makes having spare keys sound cheap. no?
on newer cars, 10x more cost....

SOURCE: 2001 mb clk 320, my ignition switch will not turn.

Hi there
I had something similar on my merc
but yours sounds similar.
the fact that you say the steering lock no longer works is very worrying, most times the key not going past position 1 is due to the steering lock being actuated and the pressure in it has to be released before the key will turn, you will have to go from lock to lock the find where the steering lock actuates when this happens follow my wiggle method of turning the steering wheel slightly when the steering lock is on the disengage it. ie keep trying the key whilst wiggeling the steering wheel.
hope that helps

2001 ford taurus key won't turn ignition


The steering wheel was turned when the key was removed. So when you try to turn on the key, turn the wheel one way and the other way to release the pressure on the key. The key should turn ok.
Hope this helps.

I need to change out the ignition on my 94 explorer cause my friend im buyin it lost the key so do you know how to get it out without the key?


You need to turn key to ON position and stick pin or paper clip in hole on side to release it so you can pull it out.

Section 11-04B: Steering Column, Ranger/Explorer 1994 Ranger and Explorer Vehicles Workshop Manual
REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Ignition Switch Lock Cylinder (Without Key) NOTE: The following procedure applies to vehicles where the lock cylinder is inoperative and the lock cylinder cannot be rotated due to a lost or broken ignition key and the key number not known or the lock cylinder cap is damaged and/or broken to the extent that the lock cylinder cannot be rotated.
Removal
  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable . For tilt columns, tilt to the full up position. Remove the steering wheel , steering column locking lever (3B661) , and steering column trim shrouds as described in this section. NOTE: When drilling out the retaining pin, take care not to damage the cast housing.
  1. Punch the lock cylinder retaining pin with a ***** punch (1/8 inch maximum outside diameter). Using a 3.17mm (1/8-inch) diameter drill, drill out the retaining pin going no deeper than 12.7mm (1/2 inch).
  1. Place a chisel at the base of the ignition lock cylinder cap. Using a hammer, strike the chisel with sharp blows to break the cap away from the lock cylinder.
  1. Using a 9.8mm (3/8-inch) diameter drill, drill down the middle of the ignition lock key slot approximately 45mm (1-3/4 inch) until the ignition lock key slot breaks loose from the steering column cover casting. Remove the ignition lock key slot and the drill shavings from the base of the cover cast housing.
  1. Remove the lock cylinder drive gear, bearing retainer and actuator from the casting as described in this section. Thoroughly clean the components in an acceptable cleaning solution. Carefully inspect all components for any damage resulting from the drill operation. If any of the components show signs of damage, they must be replaced. Clean the casting with compressed air to remove any drill shavings or foreign particles and carefully inspect it for damage. If the casting is damaged, replace it with a new one.
Installation
  1. Lubricate the lock cylinder with grease.
  1. Reinstall the lock cylinder drive gear, bearing retainer and actuator. Lubricate with grease before installing.
  1. Turn the lock cylinder to the ON position and depress the lock cylinder housing retaining pin.
  1. Insert the lock cylinder into the lock cylinder housing making sure that the tab at the end of the cylinder aligns with the slot in the steering gear (3504) .
  1. Turn the key to the OFF position. This action will permit the retaining pin to extend into the lock cylinder housing hole.
  1. Using the ignition key, rotate the ignition switch lock cylinder to make sure to correct mechanical operation in all positions.
  1. Connect ignition key warning switch terminal and wire .
  1. Install the upper and lower steering column shrouds as described in this section.
  1. Install the steering wheel as described in this section. NOTE: When the battery is disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur while the powertrain control module relearns its adaptive strategy. The vehicle may need to be driven 10 miles or more to relearn the strategy.
  1. Connect the battery ground cable .
  1. Check for proper start in PARK or NEUTRAL. Also check to make certain that the start circuit cannot be actuated in the DRIVE and REVERSE positions

Ignition switch would start but would not lock into position (RUN) and would shut off and then ignition completely locked down and will not move


The ignition key cylinder in a Buick unlocks the ignition and allows the Buick's engine to start. The cylinder contains a switch on the end of it (inside the cylinder) that sends an electric signal to the starter motor. When the ignition key cylinder fails, the Buick won't start. When this happens, you'll need a new ignition cylinder. Purchase replacement cylinders from Buick.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Things You'll Need:

  • Ignition key
  • Punch pin
  • Cross-point screwdriver
  1. 1 Remove the screws on the bottom of the steering column on your Buick. These screws hold the steering column cover on. You may need to tilt the steering wheel to its highest position to access these screws.
  2. 2 Turn the ignition key to the "II" position in the ignition cylinder.
  3. 3 Slide the punch pin into the access slot on the bottom of the ignition cylinder.
  4. 4 Push the pin all the way into the access slot while you pull the ignition cylinder out of the steering column.
  5. 5 Insert the new ignition cylinder into the steering column with the key in the "II" position on the cylinder.
  6. 6 Push the cylinder into the column until it "clicks," indicating that it is locked into the column.
  7. 7 Turn the ignition key to the "Off" position.

I have a 1988 f-350 diesel and i have lost my key and bought it without a spare how do i remove the ingnition with out a key


You don't without ruining it. I suggest you get a locksmith to make you a new key they can get in there somehow and make a key. In 1988 did Ford use a seperate key for doors? If the doors are the same or the glove box those locks are easier to remove. Also, I've never tried this with a Ford but on newer GM cars if you take the title to a dealer they can make a key from the (VIN) serial number. But, you have to have the title to prove ownership of the vehicle. I don't know if they can do that on an 88 or not. Good luck.

'95 rodeo cant turn the key, the key is not stuck,the cylinder is


Try turning the steering wheel while trying to turn the ignition. Didn't work? Can you remove the key? Use some WD40 with the tube and spray a little in. Put the key in, pull it out, repeat several times. Put the key in and wiggle the ignition lock back and forth.(try while wiggling the steering wheel back and forth, too.) Still won't move? Try pulling the key out just a small fraction of an inch and try turning the ignition.

Still no solution, time to give up and call a locksmith.
