Before he turns the wheel he wont have power. After he turns the wheel he will have power. That was his basic complaint to begin with.
The key portion of the switch just turns a rod that is hooked to the actual switch which is mounted on top of the steering column where it is impossible to get to without removing at least the top steering column supports.
What I cant remember is if that car uses one ujoint or two, and if one is inside the car or not. I think most newer cars have the moveable parts all inclosed where some older cars didnt.
A real help sometimes when you dont want to do any needless work is to go to a junkyard and find a similar year and make of car. Usually they are already pretty torn apart. If you are lucky the steering column will still be there and you can see how it works. Should give some clues.
