No steering wheel can stay. There is a torx screw and a torx style nut that hold the switch in place.

update ok it was the broken wire blk/r out of ignition switch vehicle has a remote start i think is aftermarket,quite a few non factory connections in the area i think from the tilt wheel over time broke the connection,jerry rigged a jumper connection to verify. no more air bag/abs/brake light. windows/turn signals/hvac all works. i can't get in to splice it together one handed.got to get somebody to splice it for me
