Try turning the steering wheel with one hand and turn the key with the other. Sometimes when the column locks it keeps pressure on the lock cylinder and you have to relieve the pressure by turning the wheel to take the pressure off.

Ignition lock on 1988 ford ranger will not turn


Has to be the lock cylinder,moving the wheel usually is the cure.might try some wd-40 in the "key hole" and run the key in and out a few times. sounds like a stuck tumbler.If that does not work,the lock cylinder needs changed,A breeze job if the key turns on,yours does not,so you will have to simply drive the lock pin in with a punch.

(1996 ford crown victoria Lx) after turning ignition key to off position car will not shut off; must remove fuel injection fuse and disconnect battery for car to shut off.


It sounds like you need a new Ignition switch. There are a few tricks to changing them, but it is not too hard. You need to remove the plastic cover on the steering column. There is a hole below the Ignition switch that has a spring loaded pin which releases the tumbler.

You will need to disconnect the battery a few times to rotate the key through its Interlock features and be able to remove the Tumbler which can only be released in the RUN or ACC positions. You do not want the battery connected after the key is turned.

The plastic cover can get in the way and often the Tilt wheel may need to be moved to get clearance to remove the switch. Some switches have special heads on the screws which are called Security screws.

The switch is not too expensive and is available at most autoparts stores. You may also find tooling to remove the Security screws at an autoparts store too. The job should take no longer than 1 1/2 hours if even that long, more like 1 hour for most people.

This should solve your problem.

95 F250 not starting


You said you tightened the battery cables, did you check the other end of the negative where it bolts to the engine. When you tightened the cables you also used a battery brush and cleaned the posts and ends?

I have a 1995 ford escort 1.9L. the beeper won't stop sounding when i take the key out. it does stop when i shut the door.


sounds like the ignition is stuck. I have a 96 Ford Contour, so it's probably similar... when you push the ignition in it starts the chime, even if you just use your finger and not the key. try some lock de-icer in there or just give it a few firm pushes and see if it moves. It's just telling you the key is still in the ignition even if it isn't.

1995 Cadillac SlS Shift lever knob will not move, seems frozen.


Put your parking brake on. Remove console panel. Put foot on brake. Turn ignition key to on position (Do NOT start vehicle!). Locate park lock cable (Parallel to drivers right knee). Press down on that cable with left hand while attempting to move shifter with right hand. Replace that cable if shifter moves out of park.
