    OK, now I feel real dumb asking this question. When I took the switch out, I did not notice the rod nor it's postion. So, my question is does the rod end go in the side of the switch or does it go into the switch from the bottom? the side entry looks like the only way it'll work. Here's a crude drawing of my problem www.k5.rockcrawler.com

    Man, I feel your pain. Im kinda laughing cos I know what your going thrubut I cant brgin to explain how to tell you to fix it. You just hafta "eksperamint". I would think the rod would be forward when the key is forward and back when the key is locked. I spent hours on mine and I still don't have my ACC position!

    That jeep thing? Yah I understand it....... Like my Blazer? <a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5>http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5</a>

    If I remember right (it's been a while since I changed one) it goes on the bottom/underneath. Like I said before, put the switch, and the key cylinder on "accessory" to begin with, and all should go right together, and work completely.

    Special thanks to those lost from IAFF Locals 94 and 854 - You shall never be forgotten

    "crude" was more or less an understatement :) good luck hope you get it fixed.
