ignition switch out! CAN I clean and test WITHOUT full assembly
Posted by Navid S [Email] (more from Navid S) on Sun, 7 Jul 2019 11:47:38
Hi all - so it turned out the white piece on the passenger side needs to be pulled out (pull and twist side to side)-- that is what keeps the lockplate from falling out even after you pull the spring out.
Now I have the ignition switch - I am wondering if I can clean contacts and test it out? It is the black box 4943692 (manual tranny). My plan
- clean contacts with alcohol
- put switch back, put antenna in console back, but keep everything loose
- try to get gear into neutral (linkage is loose)
- attach negative cable to battery
- test if clean start (I had intermmittent no crank no start)
if works assemble all, if fails BUY NEW ignition switch one
I want to avoid the "Key not accepted" and want to know if there is anything else taken apart that must be back together before hooking up battery to test (many switches are out)
