Starting Problems

there is a rod that goes from your ignition switch down to a box in the steering colum. and when you turn the key it pushes the rod wich inturn conects the electrical circut and tells the starter to engage. you can fix this by takeing the compleat colum out of the car and rebuilding it but if you can finda colum in a junk yard it would be alot easier and faster to replace the whole colum n if you do finda a colum in a junk yard make sure they have the key for the ignition before you buy it from them

Removing steering colum

if you are refering to the ignition switch, put the key in the ignition and turn it to "on".  Do not start the car.  there should be a hole on the bottom of the column below the ignition switch.  Stick a long skinny object, such as an unbent paper clip into that hole.  There is a littlle "button" that you have to depress and pull the switch out.

I have a turn signal switch problem

To: Skip 8303

The arm to the turn signal switch is loose in the colum the arm is still there but you really have to fight with it to make it work. And the control for the high and low beam for the head lights are controled by the same switch but beeing that they are controled by the same switch I can not switch from high to low beam.

Ignition problems

You have an issue with the mechanism that operates the iginition switch down low on the top of the column, this is the electrical switch, you must pull the column apart and see what is broken, but be warned it is a really hard job unless you have allot of patience and time don't do it, have a Ford shop fix it or locate a used column on the internet, ebay has these kinds of parts cheap, I got a good used column for my 84 Corvette for $100 shipped to my door. Good luck.
