Ignition switch on a Mercury Villager

I have figured out that the ignition switch is going bad on my 2002 Mercury Villager. Is it possible to clean the connection and see if that fixes it ? If so would it need to be cleaned on the end by the fuses ? Or should I just replace it without trying to clean ?

SOURCE: car wont start

I noticed you replace the crankshaft sensor, but not the CAMshaft sensor.
The Ignition module takes the input of both sensors to tell the coil when to energize.
This sensor should come up as an error code when you attach a obd reader.
Even if your light is not on - there may be a code. If it is not your vehicle originally, some people pull the bulb!

SOURCE: ignition switch fuse terminal is blowing red 40 amp fuse when i try to replace it

A fuse that is consistently blowing is telling you that there is a short in that system. Don't attempt to bridge it or use a larger amp fuse or you will have a major problem. You will need to start tracing wiring to destinations to find the short. If while moving harnesses around problem ceases to exist, look at nearby items where you are working and try to locate what was grounding. Sometimes people will stop if short disappears, leaving open the possibility of it happening again.
If you are not comfortable working with wiring, then leave it to professionals who do this every day. It's not really difficult but requires patience and a good bit of knowledge to do this right!

SOURCE: replacing ignition switch in 2001 chevy silverado

Not the igniton switch, its the ingition cylinder and or the housing. The switch is not part of what you are really turning. It's connected to it via gears. The common problem is the key gets worn out and the tumblers wear also. Eventualy they do not line up right and will not make the "bar" drop in the cylinder to allow it to turn from the off positon. If you have the title in your name and the key has never been rekeyed or the code has been changed you can go down to a dealership with all of the info for the truck and they can cut you a key from the vin number. You can try that first before you put a cylinder and housing in it.

When i got in my 97 mercury villager to start, i turned the ignition everything went black, there is power in the batterie


There should be a master link in the wiring from the battery. These wires are like fuses and melt to prevent further damage. You have a problem somewhere if this broke.

Tack yes tack tap in wire on distributor


If you have anti theft on your car, it will be hard to install a remote start because your key has a chip in it to tell the computer your key is in the ignition. If you don't have antitheft, you still need to tap into the engine computer circuit to install a remote starter. This is not a do it yourselfer installation.
Or, are you just trying to jump start the starter from uner the hood to bypass the start position on the ignition switch? To do that, turn the key on and jump from the battery positive post to the starter solenoid mounted on the starter.
