I have a bad ignition cylinder that needs to be replaced. I 'm looking for a diagram or pictures to assist me. I've read several "how to" instructions but diagrams work better for me. Please help if you can.
Do you
have the same problem?

So you already have instructions, just want some pics? I will attach all that I can find.....hope this helps. Mitchell has a tip about the anti-theft after repalcing lock cylinder/switch

Open hood. Remove ignition key. Insert key into liftgate power door lock switch and turn key to unlock position. At this time, headlights will flash but horn will not sound and engine disable portion of VTSS will not function until 4 engine cranking cycles have been performed. When this has occurred, VTSS will function fully

Ignition key must be in key cylinder for cylinder removal.

Disconnect negative cable from battery. Remove upper and lower shrouds from steering column. Place shifter in Park. A retaining pin is located at side of key cylinder assembly. Rotate ignition switch to RUN position. Press in on retaining pin while puling key cylinder from ignition switch.
