SOURCE: 1988 bronco ignition actuator broke. Pulled

Here is an amazing photo manual of the steering column tear-down to fix actuator on an 85 Bronco. It looks like a big job, though, which is unfortunate because the actuator on my 89 just snapped last week.

SOURCE: I NEED TO REPLACE MY

Hi!
Here are the instructions to remove the turn signal/Hazard switch:

  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Remove the steering wheel.
  3. Remove the turn signal lever by unscrewing it from the steering column.
  4. Disconnect the turn signal indicator switch wiring connector plug by lifting up the tabs on the side of the plug and pulling it apart.
  5. Remove the switch assembly attaching screws.
  6. On trucks with a fixed column, lift the switch out of the column and guide the connector plug through the opening in the shift socket.
  7. On trucks with a tilt column, remove the connector plug before removing the switch from the column. The shift socket opening is not large enough for the plug connector to pass through.
  8. Install the turn signal switch in the reverse order of removal. Check turn signal switch for proper operation.

Here is an exploded view of the steering column to help with the task at hand.

Tilt steering has loosened off. W/more than 4" play in the wheel, the ignition RACK HAS BENT, ALLOWING ACTUAtor to fall out of rack. How do I fix this problem


If it's too the point that parts have bent and fell out, it might be advisable to replace the entire column with a used one. However, if it seems salvagable, here is a write up on how to tighten the screws securing the tilt mechanism. Tilt column repair.

Cruise control not working on a 2008 ford F-350


check the fuse, it might be blown....Also, check the master brake cylinder. There's a sensor for the cruise control to activate and deactivate. Make sure it's ok. This is found on your master cylinder (wheel brakes area)

I have a 1988 f-350 diesel and i have lost my key and bought it without a spare how do i remove the ingnition with out a key


You don't without ruining it. I suggest you get a locksmith to make you a new key they can get in there somehow and make a key. In 1988 did Ford use a seperate key for doors? If the doors are the same or the glove box those locks are easier to remove. Also, I've never tried this with a Ford but on newer GM cars if you take the title to a dealer they can make a key from the (VIN) serial number. But, you have to have the title to prove ownership of the vehicle. I don't know if they can do that on an 88 or not. Good luck.

IM TRYING TO FIND THE CRUISE CONTROL FUSE AND FUSE BOX LOCATION ON A FORD F-350 2006 SUPER DUTY TRUCK AUTOMATIC.


the fuse panel is under the plastic panel on the left of the steering wheel, the cruise does not have a deicated fuse, it is controlled by the powertrain control module, if the truck runs the cruise has power, the most common cause of the cruise being inop is he rotating contact under the steering wheel, it is called the clock-spring contact
