Question about 1996 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

My ignition switch will not disengage when you

I have a 1996 Mustang GT. My ignition switch will not disengage when you turn the car to off. The car will not turn-over when attempting to start, the radio stays on and the steering column won't lock when you remove the key.

I've replaced the key lock cylinder but this didn't help....What else might be the problem?

It sounds like the ignition switch itself if you pull the plastic off the steering column and turn the key you will see a metal rod that moves back and forth running to a plastic switch with quite a few wires running out of it this is actually what controls all the electrical contacts when you turn the key on or off

Replaced ignition switch in 1999 chevy cavaliar rs, anti-theft light comes on and stays on and won't allow car to start and remain on or run


You have to do a relearn procedure on the anti-theft system:

Attempt to start the vehicle. Leave the ignition on until the THEFT SYSTEM indicator turns off (about 10 minutes). Turn the ignition switch off. Leave the ignition switch off with key in for about 10 minutes. Attempt to start vehicle.

1998 ford mustang gt the key in the ignition stuck in on , had to disengage battery why is it doing this and what do i need to do ?


The ignition lock is hooked up to the ignition switch by a rod. I've seen the switch go bad but the connecting rod is plastic and can also break which is what it sounds like happened. You can start the car because the rod is pushed to start but when you try to turn it off it can't pull the rod because it is broken. The fix involves pulling the column apart. It can be dangerous ( the air bag ) and you need some special tools.

2003 Ford Mustang GT. Car won't start.


In the trunk behind the carpet on the drivers side there is a fuel system re-set switch. With the ignition off push the re-set button then turn the ignition to the on position for a few seconds then turn it off to re-set it.
