You will need to take the houseing off around the ignition should only be a couple of screws. Then here comes the fun bit, You will have to see if you can get hold of the tool that undoes and does up the bolts (as I will call them for you not there proper name but tech name may have you going the what ) that hold the ignition on or if not fussy you could just drill them out lift the ignition off after unlocking the steering lock so turn onto first click so radio would normally come on and with the new one you can always just change the bolts that may or maynot come with it( and most times they don't) with hex head ones or what ever is your fancy, but remember if you put it on with a spanner a thief can undo it with one, install just a reverse on uninstall. then you just screw the houseing back on. You maybe able to find or may know someone with ability to get the tool for the original bolts or if handy with a grinder and have a piece of metal around you could try making one. Most are a sort of rounded out triangle, but they usually only do up easily and are very hard to undo without the proper tool and most mechanics will just replace them with new ones as the reverse direction is rounded up to the back side to make it very difficult for a thief to simply undo in a few minutes, I've known people who have used a flat screw driver and smashed a groove into them to undo but remember that will also make them easy for a thief to just remove and bypass your ignition system ie steering locks and soforth

Let's hope with a Supercab you have a tilt steering wheel.If so, just unhook the negative battery cable, line your wheels up straight, leave it in park, and turn the key on. On the underside of the housing the key and lock cylinder is in, above the hazard switch, is a very small hole with a locking pin inside. Using a small punch, or whatever works for you, simply push the pin in as you pull the lock cylinder out, sort of twisting and rotating the cylinder as you pull. A non-tilting column is a little harder, but it's not difficult, just take your time and think about what you're doing. First you need to remove the steering wheel, so make sure you mark the wheel and column in a couple places so it's easy to line up later. On the back side of the wheel are two screws that hold the front padding with the horn in it. Remove it, being careful of the wires, and disconnect. With cruise control, when you disconnect the wiring in there, you need to squeeze the ground wire terminal clip carefully but firmly (it's sort of like a "J" clip), and pull the wire out of the hole in the wheel. DON'T just pull it out, squeeze, it's spring loaded. Then remove the switch for the horn and the nut holding the wheel on. Use a puller on the steering wheel, but not one they call a "knock off", because it's pretty easy to screw things up if you go hammerin' on the wheel or the column shaft. Take your time. Then you'll find the little hole with the retaining pin near the base of the lock cylinder inside the column, remove it the same way. Remember, in park with key on. Hope this helps you out. If you happen to be referring to the actual "ignition switch", located inside the steering column (which most people don't even know actually exists), or you don't have the key and that's why you're doing this, you'll have to let me know, and I'll try to walk you through those procedures at a later date.

1989 ford f-150 no ignition when key on have radio heater fan signal lights etc. but no ignition ? vehicle will start by jumping the solenoid or by using command start


It sounds like the ignition switch (electrical) which is mounted on the column has gone bad, or you have a neutral switch that is not working. If you have a test light, test the small signal wire that pushes onto one of the pins on the solenoid. Also make sure the stater solenoid is mounted tightly, they must have a good ground to work.

Horn, brake lights, tail lights, hazard lights, and turn signals all quit working on 1984 Ford F-150 after the ignition switch was replaced. Checked connections from installing new ignition switch, checked...


Hi!!

I have a 89 F-350 and had same problem. Check your turn signal switch connectot, it may have come unplugged when replacing the ignition switch, turn signal switch controls all the lights you describe. If connector is OK, check switch itself It is made out of plastic and with time, gets brittle and cracks, then the wires get loose and somethimes it shorts things out.

Don't forget to rate this solution, Good Luck!!

Need to know how to remove and replace my f 150 ingention it is a 1987 and what tools i will need


The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.
NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible. On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.
The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company.
To replace the switch:
  • Remove the ignition switch wiring harness.
  • Unbolt it from its position.
  • Bolt the new switch into position.
  • Attach the witing harness.

It won't shut off


Sounds like a bad ignition switch. If you're able to turn the switch to the off postion and remove the key and the engine keeps running, the switch is bad and needs replacing. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.
