Youll have to take the sleeve from around the steering column the switch is held in place by a little button you will have to look at the knew switch to know what youre looking for you will also need the key in the ignition you can do it.

1997 Mercury Grand Marquis 4 door (LS I believe). I had to have the steering column replaced because my ignition switch would turn freely and not engage. A new switch would not solve the problem. Now...

The place that replaced your column is not done. The chime is suppose to indicate the keys were left in the ignition. The column is not properly installed if this is giving a warning with no key.

Ryes i have a 1985 ford ranger pick up and the problem is the key switch when I turn the key to the off position the truck keeps running

This is either a bad solenoid, or the ignition switch itself is bad.
Locate the solenoid which on fords is usually on the fender in the engine compartment on the driver side. It looks a bit like a diamond and has 4 bolts, one going to the battery, one to the ignition, starter, and I believe the coil. Locate the one coming from the ignition switch (where key goes) and see if it is sending power with the key off. If it is the ignition is bad and needs to be replaced. If it is not, check the wire going from the solenoid to the coil. If it has power the solenoid is bad, just make sure you check the other wire 1st cause if the ignition is bad the solenoid will have power going to the coil when off.
Hope thats not confusing.

I have a 72 javelin that when i try to start it fires then dies as soon as i let the key go back to thr run position. when i hook a jumper from the solinoid to the coil it starts right up.I have replaced...

at 13.4 volts the alternator is NOT charging it has to be 14.5-14.8 volts to be charging
next for the main problem
there are 2 ignition circuits attached to the ignition switch
the star position also allows power to the coil as it engages the starter
releasing it back to run engages the 2nd circuit that allows power to the coil through a resistor or resistor wire
if it stops after starting the problem is in that wire
with out starting it put the key in the run position and read the voltage at the + point of the coil
with no reading you have either a bad circuit or a bad ignition switch
