1992 Ford Tempo Repair Question
Is it absolutely necessary to disconnect key alarm when replacing tumbler lock?
It doesnt say in my repaur info what position i would try the run postion first.Turn the housing with a screw driver till all the dash lights come on then see if the cylinder will lock into the housing.
What do you mean use a screwdriver to turn the housing? What housing? Also - According to the new LOCKSmart installation instructions - All Ford Automobiles are serviced in the run position.
I said try the run position first so i was right.I was talking about insert a screw driver into the ignition housing where the cylinder goes then turn it till the dash lights etc come on so you know its in the run position.Then try inserting the cylinder again.
When I look inside the hole where the cylinder goes I see at the bottom of the hole an small opening where the protruding metal end of the cylinder fits. Also I see, on both sides of the small opening some brass metal. I suppose the metal protrusion that slips into this small opening pushes against this brass metal when the key is turned. Is this small hole where I should insert the screwdriver and then turned the screwdriver?
Should be right in the center where that tang goes that comes off the ignition cylinder the partthat turns when you turn the key.
OK - I'll give it a try and get back to you on Tuesday.
Alright keep me posted.
