Question about 1990 Ford F150
I tried to turn off my truck and the key just turned freely for about 180 degrees. So i put it in 5th and killed it. I realized it was still on so i removed the battery cable. The tumbler appears to be in the wrong position to ''pop it out'' and i cant figure out how to move it so that i can. Barring being able to some how get around this problem, will a locksmith be able to do it?
Remove the plastic trim around the bottom of steering column and look at the bottom where lock cylinder goes in and you will see a small hole there. Turn the lock cylinder to where the on postion is then stick a small pic or screw driver in the hole to push the release pin on lock cylinder and then you can pull it out.There will be a snap ring and washer there covering a gear that fits on the end of the lock cylinder that turns when u turn the key.You should be able to then tell if problem is lock cylinder or not.
