Ignition beeper problem

95 is getting a bit long in the tooth for me to have recent knowledge... Currently, the "key in sense" is a small "brush" that snaps into a recess in
the lock cylinder housing. The little plastic retainer that holds this brush in place is quite easily damaged and many "techs" will try all manner of bitch-fixing... and there is nothing that works....
Now, there is good news but there is also bad news.... once again, this is if my recalling that this brush is the same as current models is correct... There is a replacement brush and pigtail assembly available.... unfortunately, it is not listed across all applications that it will work for. The only other way to get this brush is to purchase steering column harness.... probably not an investment most would want to put into a ten year old economy car.
Leaves us with one of three options.... disconnect the offending device (at the ignition lock cylinder).... it takes a complete idiot to not realize that he's left the keys i the ignition..... Find a sharp partsman that can find the replacement brush assembly in the catalogue..... Or wait for this old codger to remember to ask the partsmonger at work for the number (sadly, this is likely the least dependable of the three methods - recently took over as shop foreman.... way too busy, anyway... and couldn't remember anything even before the extra duties...).
