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

the ignition switch is the electrical part behind the lock cylinder where the key goes in.

Ignition Switch Lock Cylinder
Lock Cylinder Functional
Removal

  1. The following procedure applies to vehicles that have a functional ignition switch lock cylinder (11582) and keys. If the key numbers are known, the correct key can be made. Disconnect the battery ground cable (14301). For additional information, refer to Section 14-01 .
  1. Turn the ignition switch lock cylinder to the RUN position.
  1. Place a 3.17-mm (1/8-inch) diameter wire pin or small drift punch in the hole in the steering column shroud under the ignition switch lock cylinder. Depress the retaining pin while pulling out on the ignition switch lock cylinder to remove it from the housing of the steering column.
Installation
  1. Install the ignition switch lock cylinder by turning it to the RUN position and depressing the retaining pin. Insert the ignition switch lock cylinder into the steering column housing. Make sure the ignition switch lock cylinder is fully seated and aligned in the interlocking washer before turning the key to the OFF position. This will permit the retaining pin of the ignition switch lock cylinder to extend into the hole of the steering column.
  1. Using the key, rotate the ignition switch lock cylinder to make sure of correct mechanical operation in all positions.
  1. Connect the battery ground cable.

  1. Rotate ignition switch lock cylinder (11582) to the RUN position.

SOURCE: 2001 ford taurus key won't turn ignition

If you have a spare key try that first. Also try trurning the steering wheel back and forth while you try to turn the key. If those two don't work than remove the key and tap the lock cylinder with the handle end of a large crew driver several times. Then try the key. Repeat this several times it should eventually turn. If the key does turn after tapping than replace the lock cylinder IMEDIATELY. The key needs to be in the "run" position in order to remove the lock cylinder. If you can't turn the key to this position you will have to drill the lock cylinder out to move it.

SOURCE: 2003 ford explorer shut-off while driving and it won't turn over, no sound when key is turn.

If the headlights work, I would check for voltage at the key switch and the major fuses.
If nothing works, I would start at the battery and work toward the fuse boxes. Could be a bad ground connection too.

2013 Ford Explorer wipers won't shut off


Unfortunately, several cars made today are having these problems, and you have found one of them. Very likely you are in the market for a new wiper motor.
Be blessed.

Shutting Down


Could be a relay, fuel pump, ignition coil, or several other things.
The charging system would only affect the condition of the battery.

2003 Ford Explorer wiper stays on after vehicle is turned off


Every wiper motor has a switch built into it that is supposed to shut off the wiper when it reaches it's 'home' position. Apparently that is getting stuck. If you're brave you can try taking it a apart and check it out, otherwise you probably need a new motor.
