Easy to do and x2 on the security torx

There are 2 springs and a small piece of metal you need to watch out for if you remove the actuator. But you can replace just the switch and not touch the actuator. I bought a #10 tamper proof torx from pepboys and it was a P.O.S. and wouldn't fit. But the one I picked up at Advance worked fine.

Would this ignition solution apply to 2000 Laredo that won't let me start it (anti -theft ) my ONLY key came in contact with a magnet while I was putting in a new battery.... ever since I've been unable to turn on vehicle... sounds like it wants to them the
KEY SLASH symbol comes on. I've researched
transponder - transpond receiver watched You-
tube possible solution .... no luck. I'm done
would really appreciate any assistance ty

Good idea to go ahead and replace the actuator pin assembly while you're in there, since they have a tendency to break and fail with age. Also, as DP40 advised above, be very careful handling the act pin assembly, as the springs and the little metal tab thingy can fly apart easily. I still haven't found the spring out of mine. Had to order another assembly to get mine put back together.

Trying to replace the actuator in a friend's jeep last night, need the TS10, went to PepBoys and bought it but wouldn't fit. Been banging my head against the wall trying to figure out why its not the same size screw as everyone else's.

Probably got the same POS bit you did. Thanks for the tip!
