As long as the steering lock no longer works you can leave the original switch where it is and mount your new switch in a convenient place. unplug the cables from under the steering column and extend them to your new switch. you should only have 4 cables there to go on your new switch. the battery cable is the one that is live all the time, a thick cable, the ignition is the one that makes the ignition lights come on when the key is turned, a thick cable, the accessory cable is the one that becomes live when turned to 1st position on key, a thinner cable, the starter cable is the one that goes to the starter motor when key turned to start a thick cable. hope this helps

1986 ford ranger ready to burn it to the ground


check the ignition switch, they separate and cause this stall out, try holding the ignition to the crank position just short of causing the starter to run, if the engine stays running then the ignition switch is defective, Ford recalled many of these for this problem, not sure your truck was affected, but it does use the sam switch and gets the same problem.
