Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
66 mustang,289,v-8,manuel shift,starter turns over motor with ignition in start position,soon as you release the key to the on position,it will run,it is like there is no positive to the coil while the ignition is in the start position,with the car not running,i checked there is positive to coil while ignition is in the on position,there should be positive to coil while trying to start car,you can turn the motor over and over in start position,it will not start,soon as you let off the key.ti will start
Sounds like an ignition switch. Besides the tickler wire to the starter relay a hot pulse should energize the ignition system. The comment about the module may be correct but if the ignition switch is not sending a hot pulse to the Module when the ignition is in the start position, then the problem is in the switch.

Change your ignition key module and that will fix the problem. Problems with key modules can be attributed to the weight of the owners key ring. Some people have massive key rings with all sorts of gadgets on them causing them to become very heavy. This puts an unexpected load on the key module and the load can double with it swinging from side to side ect... Best advise, keep the key ring simple and light.

I assume you've checked all connections from the battery and starter to make sure they are clean and tight. It is a little weird that you do not have trouble starting in neutral yet you get a clicking sound in park. My first thought would be the neutral safety switch on the transmission but you shouldn't even get a click in park if that is bad.
One possibility is the contacts in your starter have worn down and are causing too more resistance (explains the clicking). At the back of your starter is a metal cover that is held on by three tiny bolts (6mm). Disconnect the battery first! (You might have to remove the starter to get to this part) Remove this cover and pull out the plunger assembly. Underneath are two brass plates. Compare one plate to the other. If one is noticeably thinner then it could be the cause of the clicking. You will even see a round groove in the plate. You can buy the plunger and contacts from this website: http://www.nationsautoelectric.com/densoparts.html or you can opt to get a starter from your friendly auto parts store. The first picture shows the bad contact on the left. Notice the groove, the metal has become really thin there. This picture shows a pitted plunger assembly. Always good to replace it too.This picture shows all the new parts installed.

Just encountered the same problem. Popped the clutch in first gear to kill the engine, but still cannot turn the car off.
Anyone have a clue as to why the ignition locked out?
