What will only turn over? The engine? I suspect you have anittheft and your new key needs to be programmed for your truck. You can do it yourself if you have the 2 original keys that came with your truck. the instructions are in your owner manual.

It usually invoves locking & unlocking the doors, turning the key on & off several times, locking the doors, etc.

there is a rod or rack inside the steering column that pulls back on the ignition switch. the ignition switch is bad or the rod is bent from tilt steering if the wheel is slammed up. on the otherhand the switch may be right inside the colum attatched to the ignition tumbler> either way it is an ignition swithc problem.

My turn signals don't work on a 2000 ford


If you have tilt steering,after a while wires in colum tend to cut in half when tilting up and down. Not to complicated to fix. Take apart colum by removing the three screws underneath,philips(star screwdriver) then unscrew the handle that tilts the strring,you will see a flat part to the rod,,,then remove plastic that suronds the colum,all clip ons.Take a pointy tool or nail will do,put the key in the ignition,you will see a hole underneath the key cylinder,push in and the whole baril with key will come out.Now you can remove both plastics covering colum and the problem should be odvious,,,,,Be patient and enjoy your fix.

The anti theft sensor on the steering colum needs


The sensor is part of the ignition key lock cylinder, so the part and labor will be around $200-$300 depends on your local labor rate, the dealer must do this repair because the new lock cylinder key code must be programmed into the VATS module.

I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The vehicle


sounds like the key is either worn down to where the ridges in the key wont push the tumblers inside the key lock cylinder into their proper place to move the cylinder into the starting position. Or your steering colum is locked and the wheel is moving freely as if it were not. So your solution would be to either have an expert look at it (estimated cost: 200$ low/400$high) or you can attempt to fix it yourself.
should you choose the "I'll fix it myself" method....try getting a new key made at a hardware store since keys wearout over time (ie:10years of turning that old key), this may solve the problem right away if the ridges are just worn on the key. Or the hard way, you need to get a phillips screwdriver and some jewelers tools and an 8mm or 10mm wrench/rachet+socket to disconnect the battery, then underneath the steering colum just under the ignition is a hole in the colum shroud/cover, from there you can disconnect the ignition key lock cylinder (the thing you put your key into). once you've removed the cylinder from the steering colum you should test your key again to see if you can turn the cylinder outside of the colum if you cannot then buy a new ignition key lock cylinder for about 15$-30$...problems solved.
