i put a new ignition switch in my truck but to do it i took apart the top of the column to do so and when i did a piece fell out with a spring and i got it to where it all goes back and i don't know where the spring looking thing goes and now it is like the key aint telling the transmition its on because it wont go into gear it wont shift out of park
Call a qualified locksmith.
I can turn the key and have power
Diagram,may help,if not do as Bmark said,
Normally there is a hole underneath on the bottom side of the column where a thin ice pick type rod can be inserted to remove the lock. Insert the rod, you will feel tension. Insert the key and turn while pulling and it should come right out.
