missing cylinder and key

4 Answers

yes, it's called hotwiring...basically connect the bold red to the small or stripey red and touch the purple to engage the starter....at least that was how to hotwire a '61 Buick...now I'd have to look at your electrical schematic to get the colors right....how in the hell are you getting past the aggressive steering lock mechanism?

If just the key and cylinder have been removed then you can just turn the engagement slot or pin, depending on what system yours has, to start the engine and drive away, but be aware if you do get stopped there will be questions you better have the answers too.

if you are looking for wiring diagrams for the steering column, I have found that Bulldogsecurity.com is one of the best sites to use. Just go to the website, then down to vehicle wiring diagrams. then select your vehicle.

Things you should know. 1 The key cylinder connects to a switch that can be turned with cylinder removed,BUT it also pulls back the pin that unlocks the steering wheel. That's why you turn the whole cylinder and not just the key. I had to replace the switch.Witch required removal of air bag and steering wheel.
