I've been starting my '00 Legacy with just the ignition switch for the last few days after having it stolen and I'm just about to put in a new ignition. I'm a bit confused as to what the wires coming from the ignition barrel itself are for and where they plug in. Is one the steering lock maybe? 


Can someone help me out?

So wait, did they rip out the lock cylinder?

If you just need the switch those are usually replaceable without all the cylinder and stuff.

When I got the car back it had a badly installed older version Impreza ignition in it (SK-55). The wires on the top of the barrel had been cut off it too.
