Maybe so, but you don't see anyone trying to replace the ignition on a 95 Honda Accord
because the cars themselves are all gone- crushed or in junk yard.

Not sure what that has to do with our cars. BTW - I am the original owner of an 87 Accord LXI hatchback - never had any problem with the ignition switch...................... and very few other things obviously.

I once just added a push button for starter on a junker winter beater that came to me with a busted column.
Easy peasy...cost was less than $20
Hid a toggle switch to kill power under the dash so more difficult for someone to just fire it up and drive away.

Gerry, thanks for clearing that up for me. I thought I had given some wrong info. I still believe the link I posted is correct for the OPs situation.

My point, if I really have to state it, is that even though the poster claims our ignition switches are junk,
our cars are worth restoring unlike one of the FWD disposable cars from the 90s.
