We have a ford escort and we turn the switch over and absolutely nothing. It just turns with nothing at all. Just want to make sure we are doing it right. We are going to look at fixing it tomorrow. Any more advice?

Yes I told you remove the steering wheel then the multifunction switch then the three screws holding the switch.I thought you were still trying to figure out if the switch was bad.

It lists a steering wheel puller number T67L-3600-A if there is two threaded holes in the steering wheel on each side of the steering wheel nut you could use a bolt grip puller to remove it. Or sometimes if the steering wheel isnt too tight you can loosen the nut a little bit and rock the steering wheel side to side while pulling towards you to get it loose. Doesnt always work though.

My husband got it fixed yesterday, it took about an hour. He didn't need to take steering wheel off he took the four steering column bracket bolts off so the wheel would drop down so he could drill out the two pinheaded bolts which hold the whole ignition assembly onto column. Unplugged a couple wires and installed new ignition. Works good, accesory works and car starts now. He said the metal rod inside ignition assembley snapped in half
