    96 taurus ...key switch was not working when you turn key the dash lights came on but would not turn off when i turned key to off position. I bought a new key switch but acted the same. I then removed the switch unit from the column, I could start the car by sliding the switch, and also turn it off, but when I turn the key the rod that has a hole in it to operate the switch is not sliding back and forth. I can't find a diagram or picture to help me diagnose what may be broken or loose, is it possible to remove and install that slide, or is it new column time?

Try putting it in neutral and if it starts your neutral safety switch is bad. If it still will not start clean the battery terminals and all ends of the cables including the smaller ones on the starter itself. If it still will not start your starter itself may be bad. Of course the first step is to make sure your battery is good.

I don't have the same car as you, but I'm facing a similar problem. It's a little frustrating when you can't figure out why your engine won't turn over. I figure that one of the quickest ways to find out the cause might be to consult with a profession.

You may need to step on the brake pedal and be sure the transmission is in park while starting the engine,

You need to post more details on what is happening and what you are doing when the engine won't turn over.

Turn signals inside are steady and don't blink. Exterior lights don't turn on at all in rear. Front signals turn on but stay on and don't blink.

this ether sounds like you have bulbs burnt out in the rear, a fuse blowen, or a bad flasher

first check the fuses to see if any are blowen (usually a blowen fuse will lead to this issue)

then replace the bulbs that are not working

replace the signal light flasher (this is usually found in the fuse box in the cabin of the car or mounted to the steering colum)

i hope this helps ^-^
