ignition switch or hot wire?
Posted 13 March 2004 - 04:27 PM
just picked up a 87 ea82 wagon from the junkyard.
got it for the tranny parts. [5spd d/r]
the car is complete and there is a possibility it may run as it looks like the reason it went to the salvage yard is a hit to the front end.
however i have no key for it. i do have another parts car with a key and an ignition switch.
is there a way to hot wire a car just to try and get it running?
or what is involved with swapping an ignition switch if you dont have a key for one of them?
any ideas are appreciated...

jump a wire from the plus battery to the plus of the coil, that gives power to everything the back door way. you leave this one pluged in while the car is runing. then jump a wire from plus to engage the starter. as soon as the positive wire touches the solenoid wire(the one that has a single spade style plug on it) the starter will go, so make sure everything is clear of moving parts.
and no i dont steel cars
