Under your steering column is two screws, remove those and the panel. You now should see a beige terminal block-your ignition switch. There's a post that lines up inside slot, just have to make sure your key is in the correct position while adjusting post position.

The ignition switch on my 94 Ford Crown Victoria turns freely without stopping at the positions. it starts but will not turn off. What is the problem?


you may not have the rod in the correct position so it pulls and pushes. the key has to push to start and pull the rod back to turn it off. you may have to reinstall the key lock cylinder with the rod in the right place.

I have a 1994 oldsmobile 88 Royale with a 3.8 v6. I have asked this question to 2 "experts" and no one seems to be willing to answer this question: There is linkage that goes from the lock cylinder down...


The starter switch fails commonly. If the linkage does not move then it has probably broken loose from the ignition switch and switch will have to be replaced.
  • Disconnect battery ground cable . Remove the upper steering column shroud by removing the self-tapping screws. Remove four bolts retaining lower steering column shroud and remove lower steering column shroud.
  • Remove lock screw and disconnect the ignition switch electrical connector.
  • Rotate the ignition switch lock cylinder to the RUN position.
  • Remove the two screws retaining ignition switch .
  • Disengage the ignition switch from the actuator.

  • NOTE: A new replacement ignition switch assembly will be set in the RUN position as received.

    My ignition key wont turn. is it just a bad cylinder or the switch too?


    The switch/cylinder mechanisms are usually two separate parts. You should be able to get a new new key cylinder without the switch. Beware you would have different keys for the ignition/doors unless you had the re-keyed.
