    I found that I had to remove the door panel and take the switch off of the back of the lock cylinder and turn it. that seems to have reset the alarm.

Usually a sign the tumblers in the lock cylinder have worn out or jammed.

Lost my ignition key for my 1996 Ford Tarus Wagon


You can probably go to a junkyard, and steal the tumbler out of another cars ignition, just make sure that you have the set of keys to go with it. As well, if your ignition key is for your locks as well, make sure that you take those tumblers out of the door because you'll need those as well.

My car starts without the key how much to fix 1997 thunderbird ford


Hi,
Before going to get it fixed. Spray some WD-40 into the ignition cylinder where you put the key in and let it soak. The lock tumblers may just be stuck and need lubrication. If thet fails then call a ford dealer and ask how much for a coded (this means the key will match your existing key and also open your doors) and an uncoded ignition cylinder ( key will turn the ignition but you will need your old keys to open the doors) The Ford keys were designed where one half of the key operated the locks and the other half operated the ignition. If you buy a new ignition key and cylinder it will only be half cut to operate just the ignition. The cost of all this differs dealer to dealer, and don't forget that there are locksmiths in you yellow pages that will do this also
Hope this helps

1997 ford explorer ignition problem


Are you aware? you have the key and tumbler and another part under the dash on the steering column called the ingition switch.
They both have to be aligned in sync to operate properly.
Question? is this a tilt steering wheel,if it is and you dont know anything about it I suggest you get a professionel to do this kind of job.
You really have to know what your doing for this one.
