My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. There are two resources I can offer you. First, you might want to read this article on how to replace an ignition lock cylinder. Second, although this video is for a 2003 Honda Odyssey, the process is virtually identical for your 1995. I would recommend purchasing a service and repair manual for your Odyssey and this will have detailed instructions.
