I have 2003 ford explorer 'lost key an broke ignition'now can a used sterring column start my truck?do i need to replace computer too?


You only need to replace the key lock barrel not the entire column. Take off the steerinf wheel and you'll be able to remove the key lock.

I can not turn my ignition switch i turn the steering wheel and it lock up on me


Wheel pressure on the sterring column will prevent the key from turning to start position, Try turning the wheel hard to the left to release the pressure before turning the key to start . If that doesnt do it then try to the right.
Before turning car off make sure the wheels are straight or take your hands off of the sterring wheel before you turn your key to the off position.
Lots of luck Jack

***As per Haynes Manual for your Vehicle*** Warning: if your vehicle is equipped with a suplemental inflatable restraint (SIR) system, always disengage airbags before working in the vicinity of the sterring wheel to avoid accidental deployment of airbags.

3. Unplug the wires from the ignition switch, remove bolts and lift the switch off the steering column.
4. Installation os the reverse of removal.

Hope this Helps! I have a an illustration and it looks that the switch is on the left side of the steering column. If you need any information or help removing the Steering wheel or steering column covers let me know! Good Luck.

Key in ingnition will not turn steering whelel


Push in the key, while turning at the same time. If it still does not turn freely. Try wiggling the wheel a little bit. Do not put too much force, the key may break inside the switch. If that does not work, make sure the car or truck is level . Preassure on the wheels places preassure on the sterring wheel also.Then try again.
