Ignition lock cylinder or the actual switch?

For lock cylinder replacement, read below for proper procedures.

REMOVING IGNITION LOCK CYLINDER
Properly disable the SIR air bag system, if equipped.
Place the lock in the Run position.
Remove the lock plate, turn signal switch and buzzer switch.
Remove the screw and lock cylinder.

CAUTION
If the screw is dropped on removal, it could fall into the column, requiring complete disassembly to retrieve the screw.
To install:

Rotate the cylinder clockwise to align cylinder key with the keyway in the housing.
Push the lock all the way in.
Install the screw. Tighten the screw to 14 inch lbs. (1.5 Nm) for adjustable columns and 25 inch lbs. (2.8 Nm) for standard columns. Re-center the SIR coil assembly as previously directed.

REMOVING TURN SIGNAL SWITCH (Air Bag equipped Only)
Properly disable the SIR air bag system.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the inflator module.
Remove the steering wheel.
Ensure the steering wheel is locked in the straight-ahead position and remove the coil assembly retaining ring.
Pull the coil assembly out and allow it to hang.
Using a suitable tool, depress the lock plate to gain access to the snapring. Remove the snapring and remove the lockplate.
Remove the turn signal canceling cam, upper bearing spring and signal switch arm.
Remove the hazard warning knob, turn signal lever and steering column wiring protector.
Disconnect the turn signal switch connector from the harness connector.
Remove the switch retaining screws and remove the turn signal switch.
Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Make certain to follow the SIR coil adjustment procedure previously described.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
