SOURCE: FORD EXPLORER IGNITION IS STUCK

just replace the ignition it is only about 25 dollars or so and it should not have a pats system for that year you must have the key to get the ignition out though do you have another key ... the key must be turned to get it out and back in you can drill the lock and then turn it so you can remove it but if you are not comfortable doing this call a locksmith.. much cheaper than a dealer

SOURCE: my key won't turn in the ignition, steering wheel

Try turning the wheel in both directions with some force while turning the ignition. Sometimes the steering wheel is in a bind when the vehicle is parked and it makes the ignition lock cylinder "stick". WHen you relieve the pressure on the steering column you should be able to turn the key.

You should be able to move the wheel just a hair to unlock the ignition, It is binding up the lock. If that is not the problem, you have 3 locks on there that tie into the transmission, But they have nothing to do with the steering wheel lock, so try to move the wheel and turn the key at the same time, if you still have trouble, get back to me, I'll give you the rest. Hope this helps.

Why can't I unlock my ignition and start my car?


Put one hand on the steering wheel and rotate slightly left and right alternatively whilst turning the ignition key at the same time with the other hand. This might release the steering wheel and start ignition.

Hope this helps.

Is your key the coded/chip kind? That could be out of code.

KEY WONT TURN IN IGNITION


OK, obvious first: turn it the other way. Don't laugh, I've done this.

Otherwise, barrel is jammed. Get a new barrel, dismantle the steering column and replace the existing one. You'll now need two keys: one to unlock the car and one for the ignition. You won't be the first.

You may want to try to slightly push / pull your vehicle to take weight / tension off the transmission, which in turn will allow you to turn the steering wheel enough to see if the ignition switch can be turned.

I have locked the steering wheel, how do I unlock it. Now the car is immobilized and I can't start the engine


You may have to use a little muscle here. When this happens, turning you steering wheel to the left usually will release the ignition lock cylinder so tha you can turn the key. Make sure you hold the steering wheel once you have turned it. Keep in mind, it won't turn very far. One side you turn to will feel like it hit something solid, the other side you turn to will be the unlock side.

So
Turn steering wheel and hold until you are able to turn the key. It will take a bit of effort on your part, but that should get it back going.

The car will turn over but won`t start but if I turn the key on and jump the starter it starts


Sounds like the ignition switch has gone kaput. The ignition switch come in two pieces, an electrical switch and a mechanical switch.

The switch electrical portion can be replaced separatly from the mechanical portion (tumbler that the key engages). It is not a real difficult repair but requires some mechanical knowlege of how the column is assembled.

This can be verified with electrical test equipment prior to buying a new electrical switch.
