Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Ignition Starter Switch:

I installed the switch in my 97 S10 Blazer and other than getting to the switch and removing the lock cylinder, the install was pretty straight forward. I love the fact that it has a limited lifetime warranty; that means BWD will stand by their switch.

The install got my issues I was having (intermittent stalls while driving and not cranking at all) solved promptly. One thing that the Chilton does not cover is lining up the hard switch in the steering column and the ignition switch; but as long as you remember to line both up before you tighten up the torx screws; you can't go wrong. Another good note is make sure you have some extremely small torx sockets before you get all the way into the steerig column, because the switch is held on with to REALLY small screws.

      Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Ignition Starter Switch:

      The only difficult issue with this, was ordering on a Saturday morning. After ordering online, my receipt took 5 days to get to me. Then, I had to go over to my local Advance Store and [*] with them about my purchase. That took up more time, than installing the parts. My passion is doing mechanic's yet my skill is driving a big rig. So, with a Saturday off and not getting to do what I had planned, my S-10 became priorty. Jealous I'd say. It's just a matter of connecting the dots or better yet (The Wires). So far so good.

          Swapped out with old harness real easy, once you have the steering column covers off. Remember to pick up a set of Torx bits if you don't have them.

              Amazingly it fixed a problem with the transmission not shifting on a chevy blazer. With the old cable there was no voltage to the transmission fuse in the fuse block.
