I know it sounds too simple but did you try and turn the steering wheel to see if that frees it up to turn?

Locate the ignition relay in fuse box of 1993 Ford E350 Van


There isn't a relay for this year. I doubt the ignition switch is OK. I would first pull all the fuse and relays you can find(look and see if good). Then check fusible links(volt/ohm meter). Then start checking plugs. Check power and ground points(volt/ohm meter). Just a note.. I worked on the 60's to present cars.

Vito ignition won't turn to start engine


Hi, if you put your key in to the ignition and the dash lights up and when you turn it to crank and nothing happens , well it can be a couple of things , i would need to know more of the symptoms , but if that is happening and you keep turning the key on and off and eventually it fires up , it is the ecu that has gone bad im afraid ,unless you are loaded with cash you wont mind the mb bill for parts and labour , the best solution is get a second hand one from a van dismanteler , i would recommond dronesfields in manchester excellent alround , the look out for a good indie and have him take the dump file that is on the old ecu and keep it on file so when you get the replacment ecu he will be able to load the file onto it .
hope this is of help to you ,
cheers Joe.

This happened to to me with my ranger. I went and bought in ignition and a junk yard and no problems after that. That way your not out of a lot of money.

Ignition locked will not turn


easiest way to handle this problem is as you turn the key turn the steering wheel back and forth not real hard bust firm and try and turn the key foward and back at the same time. usually what happens is the little detente inside the column gets stuck just right and stops the tumbler from moving
