I am unable to start my car from the ignition switch.[8] I don't think the switch is faulty. Where is the (trans lockout) ignition safety switch?[:I] I figure it might have come unplugged or is faulty, broken wire, etc...

OOps, Sorry![:I] I forgot, the car is a '62 Lark Regal sedan.

Lotsa Larks!

It's on top of the steering column, under the dash. Serves as BU lite Sw. as well.;) Earlier cars had it at the base of the column IN the engine compt..

Thanks Mr Biggs!!:D The tab on the bottom of the switch was broken off. I should have known when the backup lights refused to shut off what the problem was.[:I]

Lotsa Larks!
