Place key into ignition, use a paper clip and press the tiny hole on the switch. Turn the key back towards ACC position and pull the cylinder right out. Reverse procedure to install.

SOURCE: 92 F250 ignition tumbler can't remove

You need to remove the steering wheel and disassemble the steering column far enough to access the lock cylinder release tab from the inside. If you have already purchased a replacement cylinder, you can locate it quite easily.

Ignition switch diagram


IF you have a locksmith take it out it is possible that he may be able to repair the pins in the tumbler but I think the cost would be more than getting a new tumbler. If you use a locksmith then he can set the new tumbler pins so that you can use the old key and that will save you carrying extra keys unnecessarily.

Key will not turn


If your key will not turn at all there is a good chance that your ignition tumbler has gone bad. The tumbler is the part that your key actually goes into. The tumbler is fairly easy to remove, and the new tumbler will actually come with step by step instructions. A new lock tumbler will normally cost no more then $30. If that does not work the only other option is the ignition switch itself and those are more expensive costing on average around $150 or more. I hope this helps you out, and if you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

Ignition tumbler (Where you insert the key) Need to remove steering wheel, if tilt steering need remove c clip, then there is a hex bolt securing the tumbler.
Ignition switch is a bit more involved.

Key stuck in ignition -- cannot turn on or off. Can an ignition switch cause the tumbler to lock up? Or does the ignition tumbler need to be replaced? If the ignition tumbler needs to be replaced, how...


lets start simple.get a can of silacone spray oil and spray into the switch and keep moving key and you will find this will reliese the key,if you need to remove the ign switch dont panic as its a simple enough job.Forget about steering wheel and whatever,simply remove the outer plastic cover then this exposes the switch at the back of switch is a plug with wires pull it away ,then below the key you should see a tiny screw undo, and make sure the steering lock is not under pressure,ie steering wheel free,when trying to remove switch move steering wheel back/forward and switch should pull out.good luck.adrian,,,,

My anti theft alarm goes off and makes it to where I can't start my car how do i bypass this


You can't do it; the Theft System it's integrated to the vehicle control computer ECU/PCM; you need install one INTERFACE to make this work.

Review this Wiring Diagram and this comment: when installing a 791 TRANSPONDER BYPASS System on this vehicle it will be necessary to remove the BOTTOM STEERING COLUMN Cover and IGNITION SWITCH TUMBLER to gan access to the Factory Transponder System around the Ignition Switch. To do so will require that you first look at the bottom of the STEERING COLUMN COVER to identify the screw holes from the IGNITION SWITCH TUMBLER RELEASE PIN HOLE, that is required to remove the Ignition Switch Tumbler, the IGNITION SWITCH RELEASE PIN HOLE is the SMALLEST Hole in the plastic cover in this picture. NOTE *** to remove the IGNITION SWITCH TUMBLER, a TORX #15 Bit on a Screw Driver will work just fine. Incert it up into this hole and press, at the same time, turning the IGNITION SWITCH ON and the Tumbler will pull out at the same time. This Must be done to remove the IGNITION SWITCH TUMBLER so that the BOTTOM Steering Column Cover can be removed to gain access to the TRANSPONDER SYSTEM built around the IGNITION SWITCH.

Also, its possible that you need other details from the Taurus's Owners Manual.

Hope helps.

Was replacing the ignition switch and accidently broke off a silver piece off of where the switch goes connected. Can you some one tell me if this can be replaced and if I have to replace the entire key...


Replacing An Ignition Switch..

If The Ignition Switch Is Defective, It Must Be Replaced Regardless. Before Removing A Dashboard-mounted Switch, The Tumbler (Lock Mechanism) Must Be Removed From The Switch.Normally A Small Piece Of Wire Is Inserted Into A Hole IN The Front Of The Switch And The Key Is Turned.This Will Release The Tumbler From The Switch So The Tumbler Can Be Pulled Free. Then Unplug The Wires And Remove The Old Switch.

A Steering Column-mounted Ignition Switch Is Separated From The Tumbler. It Is Normally About Halfway Down And On Top Of The Steering Column. To Remove This Type Of Switch, Remove The Fasteners Holding The Steering Column To The Dash. This Will Let The Column Drop Down So You Can Replace The Ignition Switch.

The tumblers have wore down and won't let the key turn. At this point you need to have the tumbler set replaced.

What you need to do is this:

Remove Steering wheel
Remove big connector under dash, it has a 8mm bolt that is holding it in, this will loosen up the wires in the steering column
Pull out clock spring and let it hang
Get lock plate compressor and remove lock plate, the snap ring is kinda hard to get off
Remove plates and spring behind lock plate
Put turn signal switch to the turn right position
remove three screws holding in turn signal cam
remove key warning buzzer, needle nose pliers and it just pulls out, be gentle
remove screw with a torx head that holds the ignition tumbler in place
