    I installed this in a 88 s10 I didn't feel like tearing apart my column because it had tilt wheel and I wasn't gonna deal with all that mess. Key switch was quick and easy to install did it under an hour mounted it right underneath the dash now my accessory positions work and I don't have to turn the key all the way to listen to the stereo. Its a good quality key switch and I couldn't be happier.

      key fit to tumblers is poor. Also contacts inside switch must not line up correctly, as sometimes starter will try to engage if you hit a bump. Also, return spring for it to snap out of start position is weak and poor. I am going to reurn for refund. I do not reccomend.

            Good question, Bob! There is no ground on this switch, it is all power in and depending what position the switch is in will decide the power output location.

        • Q:

          Is this considered a 3 position switch? I need the switch to work a foward solenoid when turned to the right and a reverse solenoid when turned to the left and when the key is positioned to the middle the switch is off.
