With a drill I'm afraid.
You need the key to turn the lock cylinder to release the lock pin.
You can either drill out the pin or drill out the lock cylinder.

1999 grand Marquis will quit starting randomly without any cranking either. It will start if the car and steering wheel is shaken vigorously while turning the key. Why?

I would guess that one of the wires to the ignition switch or the switch itself is intermittent. Replacing ignition switch will likely fix it.

Ignition turns off immediately after turning. wont hold in run is there an easy fix or bypass? 1991 mercury marquis

They get real sloppy the ignition switches on most older fords.....unhook your battery then put the key in the run position and on the bottom of the steering column there is a small hole that is acceess to the release pin for that ignition swich need a small screwdriver of lung thin punch to push that in and your ignition switch just comes our .
Go to the local wreckers or dealer and get a replacemen ........Keep in mind the key will be different from before so make sure the used one comes with a key
