Question about 1988 Ford F 150
My actuator rod broke. Repairman fixed it and it broke again. Started it by junping the solenoid. Now I can't cut the power off. Temporary fix so I can get the switch fixed?
I have an '86, and the ignition switch is on the steering column, right under the column shroud. That's what the actuator rod connects to, it activates the ignition switch when you turn the key. So if yours is anything like mine, there's just two screws holding the shroud on, so you should be able to remove the shroud and manually manipulate the ignition switch since the actuator rod isn't connected to it anymore. That way you can hopefully start it as well as turn it off.
