Ignition switch sliding

Postby Phoenix Down » Sun May 04, 2014 1:42 pm

Went to start my car at work and I turned the key and then felt a click and now the ignition switch just slides around no resistance at all.

Suffice to say it wouldn't start with out a push start.

Worst of all it's stuck in run mode so I have to disconnect the battery when I'm not driving it.


Any ideas on the problem and fixes for it? Even a temp fix as it's my daily driver and I don't get paid till next week.
Yay, Restoring...

Guess I'll say what others are thinking.

'After pay day, order a new switch. Or go to a junkyard.'

Good luck. I'll be buying a new Ignition switch real soon too.

AE86 How to remove ignition barrel...

Postby jondee86 » Wed May 07, 2014 8:24 pm

Just the barrel/cylinder?

Insert key, Turn to 'on' position.
With the cover off, if you look at the top of the barrel there is a hole. In that hole
is a pin. Push it down with a small drill bit, screwdriver, or whatever you have handy.

It'll slide right out.
