I need to install a new wiper switch turn signal combo on a 1995 e-150 ford van and i need to know how to take out the old one and put in the new one correctly. Can you help me? Thanks, dan banes.

hey Dan, This is not to difficult if you have a tilt column drop it down by using the lever that's used to adjust it use a phillips screw driver and take out the screws that hold the plastic steering column shroud in place and remove the shroud you will also have to put the key in the ignition and turn it to the on position then using a long thin screw driver put it in the hole that you see under the ignition switch in the shroud and push the metal button in to remove the ignition cylinder and take the right side shroud off next unplug the connectors and unbolt the switch remove it and install the new one reverse removal and put the shroud back on this is for both tilt or stationary steering columns here's a photo of the switch to help you

H3 A/C Problems. New what??

I had the same problem. I fix it my self. This is what you look for, is your a/c blower working when you turn the fan on. If a/c light come on but nut the blower fan. Then under passenger dash you will see orange plug. It's held in with 2 screws. Remove 2 screws and pull resistor out. Disconnect orange plug and look at orange plug and the resistor if burn need to replace the resistor and the orange connector. That's your problem. Now if your blower works but no power to a/c switch and you instrument nobles has no lights. Then it's a fuse check #48 and # 57 fuse that controls that Troy

How to install ignition switch

follow these instructions:

Removing the Old Ignition Switch

Remove the steering wheel housing. This will be held on by two screws. One will be in the front and the other will be in the back of the housing. The screws are usually Phillips heads or star-shaped heads.

Locate the switch behind behind the key tumbler. It will be held by a screw.

Remove the screw holding in the switch. The switch will work its way loose.

Unattach the pigtail attached to the back of the ignition switch. They should lock in with a tab that needs to be folded up so the pigtail can be slid out.

Remove the old switch. It will slide right out.

Installing the Ignition Switch

Install the new switch. Inspect to make sure it looks like the old one.

Plug the wiring into the back of the switch. The wiring pigtail will lock into place.

Screw the switch back into position where the old one was removed. The new switch should sit in the same as the old one.

Place the steering column housing back around the steering wheel. Install it as you took it off. The housing is set to fit around the column and fits one way.

Tighten the screws on the housing. The housing should be snug.

Need to change the ignition switch

Remove panel under steering wheel. Put key in cylinder and turn back to accessory position. Looking under lower part of steering column locate a small pin under the key cylinder. While depressing the pin turn the key backwards and pull the entire cylinder with key out of column. Good luck.

Heating up

This may be normal, depending on the thermostat installed. They make optional thermostats of various temps. You can probably get a 190 degree thermostat. It will probably not have a significant effect on the engine operation, but may give you some peace of mind.
