Comments about Locksmart Ignition Lock Cylinder:

Bought this to replace the one in my truck, the previous owner had snbapped the key off in the lock and I'm not living in the nice end of town...
Opened the box, key is in the lock, lock moves as it should, I try the other key, it doesn't work, I try the first key again, it still doesn't work.
It's dead, Jim.
I could exchange it, but how long will that one last? An ignition lock freezing on you can really ruin your week...

              How do I install an Ignition Lock Cylinder on a 1994 GMC C3500 Sierra diesel truck?

                A:

                I'm happy to help, Brian! Disconnect the vehicle's negative battery cable, it is usually clamped into place, so you must loosen the clamp nut with a wrench. Detach the trim covers on the steering column by removing the screws on the lower cover with a screwdriver. Remove the driver's side knee bolster by removing its screws. Insert the ignition key into the lock cylinder and turn it to the "Run" or "Start" position. Push a small Phillips head screwdriver or similar tool into the retaining hole at the top of the lock cylinder housing. Pull the ignition key and lock cylinder out of the housing together. Install the replacement cylinder with its key inserted into the housing, making sure its retainer aligns with the retainer slot in the housing; the cylinder needs to be installed in the "Start/Run" position. Push in the cylinder so the retainer snaps into position. Turn the cylinder into the "Lock" position and remove the key. Reconnect the trim covers and the negative battery cable.

                Hi dean, I'm glad to assist you. To replace the lock cylinder on 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass, you have to pull the steering wheel of, the lock plate, and the turn signal switch, then you can pull the retaining bolt out and the lock cylinder will come out.

                Hi Woody, happy to help you! Here is the instructions to replace the ignition lock cylinder. Pop the hood and remove the cable from the negative battery terminal by turning the clamp nut in a counterclockwise direction with an adjustable wrench. Push the cable aside and away from the battery. Insert the ignition key and turn it to the "accessory" position. Straighten out a paper clip and stick one end into the hole on the cylinder at the base of the key slot. Hold the paper clip into the hole while simultaneously turning the ignition key to the "off" position. Pull the lock cylinder out of the ignition switch and discard the paper clip. Place the key into the new ignition lock cylinder and insert the assembly into the ignition switch cavity. Turn the key to the accessory position and then back to the "off" position to secure the cylinder into place. Place the cable back onto the negative battery terminal and tighten the clamp with an adjustable wrench in a clockwise direction. Close the hood.

              • CUSTOMER CARE

                A:

                Hi Hester, glad to help you! Here is the instructions to install a ignition lock cylinder without a key: Disconnect the negative battery cable from your vehicle, which will eliminate the chance of getting shocked while working on your ignition switch assembly. If your vehicle has an airbag, disable it by prying off the airbag switch cover on the bottom or side of the steering wheel and disconnecting the electrical connection leading to the airbag itself. Wait for 10 minutes for any built-up charges to dissipate from your car's electrical wiring. Use a screwdriver and socket wrench set to disassemble the steering column covering and lower dashboard panels so that you can access the ignition switch. Different vehicles will have varying panel combinations that need to be removed, however, you will need to see the complete steering column and ignition switch assembly. Disconnect the electrical connection leading to the ignition switch. Some vehicles may have two connections that need to be unclipped. Use a screwdriver or socket wrench to unscrew the mounting bolts (or screws) for the ignition switch. Unbolt the ignition switch housing and assembly, which contains the lock cylinder. Some models have interchangeable lock cylinders that can be removed by turning the ignition key to the accessories position and inserting a pin into a pin hole with a release mechanism. However, other vehicles do not give you this option. Inspect the mounting bolts for your ignition switch housing. Some models use safety snap-off bolt heads that prevent thieves from replacing your ignition switch and driving off. You will need a power-drill with screw extractors to drill out the bolts used to mount the ignition switch housing to the steering column. Replace the ignition switch and lock cylinder assemblies. Some models may require you to insert the lock cylinder into the ignition switch assembly if the two components are sold separately. This is best done prior to installing the new components to your steering column. You may need to turn the new ignition key in the lock cylinder to the accessories position before inserting it into the ignition switch. Test your ignition switch by reconnecting the electrical connections and the negative battery terminal cable. Turn on your vehicle. If it cranks correctly, then all you need to do is reconnect the airbag and steering column covers and panels.

                Hi Cy, I'm glad to assist you! First disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the steering column covre retaining screws. Remove cable from the parking brake release handle, then remove screws holding steering shroud. Then remove the lower steering column shroud. With ignition switch in run position, depress retaining tab. Remove lock cylinder.
                To install, reverse removal procedure. Ensure ignition switch and actuator shaft in lock housing are in the run position, lock cylinder tab will depress only in run position. Check for the proper operation of ignition switch in all positions.
