SOURCE: How do you go about replacing the ignition switch

Removal & Installation CAUTION Read the air bag service precautions in Section 6 prior to doing work involving an air bag equipped steering column component. Always wear safety glasses when servicing an air bag vehicle and handling the air bag to avoid possible injury.

  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Remove the steering column shroud and lower the steering column.
  3. Disconnect the switch wiring at the multiple plug.
  4. Remove the two nuts that retain the switch to the steering column.
  5. Lift the switch vertically upward to disengage the actuator rod from the switch and remove the switch.
  6. When installing the ignition switch, both the locking mechanism at the top of the column and the switch itself must be in the LOCK position for correct adjustment. To hold the mechanical parts of the column in the LOCK position, move the shift lever into PARK (with automatic transmissions) or REVERSE (with manual transmissions), turn the key to the LOCK position, and remove the key. New replacement switches, when received, are already pinned in the LOCK position by a metal shipping pin inserted in a locking hole on the side of the switch.
  7. Engage the actuator rod in the switch.
  8. Position the switch on the column and install the retaining nuts, but do not tighten them.
  9. Move the switch up and down along the column to locate the mid-position of rod lash, and then tighten the retaining nuts.
  10. Remove the locking pin, connect the battery cable, and check for proper start in PARK or NEUTRAL.-Also check to make certain that the start circuit cannot be actuated in the DRIVE and REVERSE position.
  11. Raise the steering column into position at instrument panel. Install steering column shroud.

I need a rekey done oon a 97 ford f150 please help anyone know anything about it


Take your vehicle registration to Ford and they will check proof of ownership and cut you another key based on the VIN number. If that is not the problem then remove your ignition lock and take the tumbler assembly to Ford and have them change the pins in the tumbler to a new key format. Save your old key for the doors. Both of these items will work depending on what you require. Good luck.

88 F150 Ignition is off and keys in my pocket but fuel pumps running non stop and eec relay powered just like ignition is on? brand new relays and connectors


You probably have a worn out key and tumbler assembly. Crabk your truck and see if you can remove the key while it is running. Try putting the key back in and jiggle it to see if the powered up units go off. I worked for Ford for many years and that year truck also had a problem with the ignition switch at the bootom of the steering column. That is where the rod from your ignition switch (key) goes in and turns all the accesories on. It is possible that it is sticking in the power on position. This could also be from a broke actuator rod.

Can not turn key to start truck 2000 ford f150


Spray some lubricant such as wd40 in the ignition tumbler. Let it sit awhile. Move the key in and out of the cylinder to loosen the detents. If that does not work you wil have to drill out the tumbler.

Ford f150 the windows,radio & wipers don't work when the motor is runing then i turn it off & place the key in the back position of the switch they work


Might want to remove the tumbler, and check it for obstructions, or dirt in the grease.

One quick test for this would be :

Start the truck as normal. Check the radio, if it is off, slightly turn the key backwards towards the off position, only moving the key 1 or 2 mm. It could be the key is not returning from the start position correctly.

To check the tumbler :
Look on the bottom of the steering wheel cover. There should be 4 holes, but only 3 screws. The empty hole should be by the ignition switch.

1 Insert the ignition key and turn to the RUN position.

2 Insert a punch in the access hole of the steering column and press the release tab while pulling out the ignition switch lock cylinder.

Once you have it out, you should be able to look inside the tumbler path, to see if there are any obstructions, or grease & dirt build up.
This is also the same way to remove the key in ignition warning chime. It should be a tab on the end of the tumbler ( mine was broken, left in the tumbler path )
Pry the clip down, and push the tab off the rear of the ignition switch lock.

Putting it back is a case of pushing the same punch in the hole, insert the switch lock cylinder back in, release the punch, and cycle the key to the off position.

How do you change an ignition for a 1990 Ford F150 pick up truck


turn the key to the on position. look for a small hole in the cover on the bottom side of the steering column, about an inch or so back from the steering wheel. I usually use a small allen wrench with some length to it, but stick something like that in the hole. you will have to feel around a little bit but it should go into the ignition tumbler and it should release it. while pushing that in, pull on the key and or tumbler to pull it out.
