This is located on your ignition switch. If you take off your noise encapsulation panels under your dash, and look straight up, you will see this:

Larger Picture:


In the above pic, you can see the two black tubes that go to and from this switch.

There are two screws that hold this in.You can see the one screw in the above picture. It's difficult to get to it, the other one is extremely difficult to get to! You basically have to just unscrew these two screws, and unplug the two tubes, and plug them back in, and screw it in. KEEP IN MIND you have to plug the tubes back in correctly. If you don't, you'll notice real fast when you try to shut it off, absolutely nothing will happen, no hesitation or anything. It's no big deal if you plug them in backwards, they are relatively easy to get to swap.
