Question about 1992 Ford F150 SuperCab
Ignition lock switch went bad it would crank the truck but would not turn it off pulled the steering wheel and pulled old igntion lock switch out but can not get the new one to go in all the way is there a certain trick?
Do you have a tilt wheel? If so you're only half the way there. The upper actuator is broken. And you got to get into the column further. As for the trick to get the cylinder in. Don't matter if you got a tilt or fixed wheel. Go to the top side of the column. About 2/3 the way down it you'll find the Ign Switch. A rod will be coming out of the top going towards the wheel area. Push it into the switch till the inst panel lights come on. That means that the Ign switch is in the 'ON' sopition. IE all the dash panel lights come on. There is a key on the tumbler that matches to a key in the ign gear. Than just incert the tumbler into the gear and turn it to lock it in.
If you got a non-tilt wheel then it sounds like the bottom of the tumbler is broken off and is still in the gear. If so do the same as above with the Ign Switch. That will align the key so you can take the broken part out and put the new Ign tumbler in.
