How to remove the steering wheel for replacement


SIR DISABLE:
DRIVER SIDE
Many service procedures require the air bag system to be disabled to prevent accidental deployment. The air bag system can maintain sufficient voltage to cause deployment for up to 2 minutes after the ignition switch is turned off, the battery ground cable is disconnected or the DERM fuse is removed. If the inflator module is disconnected from the deployment loop by the following procedure, service can begin immediately without waiting for the 2 minute time period to elapse.
  1. Turn steering wheel so that vehicle wheels are pointed straight ahead.
  2. Turn ignition switch to Lock position and remove key.
  3. Remove air bag fuse from fuse block.
  4. Remove steering column filler panel.
  5. Remove Connector Position Assurance (CPA) and disconnect yellow two-way connector at base of steering column, Fig. 1.

My horn quit working and airbag light came on after replacing starter and ignition switch. Help!! I have a 2001 dodge neon


I'm sorry but you may broke the clock spring connection from the column to the steering wheel.First make sure all the wire are connected under the dash after you work on ignition switch.
for clock spring disconnect the battery for 10 min.to discharge the SRS system.
turn the wheels and steering straight.
remove the airbag and store in safe place
remove the steering wheel
remove column cover
disconnect the clock spring and remove
installation in reverse order
the new clock spring have yellow lock tab. after removing the tab DO NOT turn the spring. the wire inside have limit of 2 1/2 turns each way.
good luck

How to change ignition switch


REMOVE THE STEERING COLUMN HOUSING. LOOK AT A CONNECTOR ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE HOUSING YOU JUST REMOVED. THERE WILL BE RED OR RED/BLACK WIRE AND ALSO PINK, YELLOW, BROWN WIRES ALSO COMING OFF THE IGNITION CYLINDER . THIS WOULD BE THE RIGHT CONNECTOR TO REPLACE. YOU MAY SEE 2-3 ADDITIONAL COLORED WIRES ALSO.
DONT TOUCH ANY CONNECTORS THAT ARE YELLOW OR WRAPPED IN YELLOW TAPE. THESE ARE AIR BAG WIRES.

1985 mazda glc, radio was removed at some point and left 3 wires hanging out, 2 red 1 yellow. if i attach the red to yellow the ignition buzzer and such will sound, car will start and run for about 7...


I believe the red are switched ignition wires and the yellow is a constant hot wire. Cap and tape them separate from each other and you shouldn't have a problem.
