Ignition switch is where the key goes. Should be on the steering column and on newer model vehicles it is sometimes found on the dash.

No, b/c from the ignition switch housing, you have a rod that goes down to the actual switch in the column and then from there it connects the circuit and starts the pickup. I was wondering where in the column.

Ok the actual switch is located on top of the steering column assembly and it is completely inaccessible without first lowering the steering column. details for removing the switch are below. just remove the components until you reach it.

Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the lower column trim panel, then remove the steering column-to-instrument panel fasteners and carefully lower the column for access to the switch.
Remove the turn signal switch from the column and allow it to hang from the wires (leaving them connected). Remove the buzzer switch assembly.
Carefully remove the lock cylinder screw and the lock cylinder. If possible, use a magnetic tipped screwdriver on the screw in order to help prevent the possibility of dropping it.
Unfasten the steering column support bracket assembly hex head bolts and remove the bracket.
Unfasten the dimmer switch assembly screws and remove the switch.
Place the ignition switch in the OFF-LOCK position.
Remove the ignition switch-to-steering column retainers, then remove the assembly
