Ignition switch stays on even though the key is removed


Hi Steven:
Using my fingers and toes I think your truck is about 25 years old.
The chances are pretty good that the ignition switch is getting worn. If you look at the key compared to a new one, the inside of the ignition will have similar wear.
If you get a new key cut it might temporarily help, but the long term fix will be to either replace the switch or possibly have a locksmith install new parts.
Keep that old iron running!
Cheers

I am trying to change the ignition switch in my 91 chevrolet truck and i cant get the old switch out.


f
The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.
NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible. On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.

The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company. To replace the switch:
  • Remove the ignition switch wiring harness.
  • Unbolt it from its position.
  • Bolt the new switch into position.
  • Attach the witing harness.

Good luck (remember rated this help)

My 1994 f150 ignition switch will turn the truck on but won't turn it off. Also the switch is very loose, does this need to be changed or tightened?


The plastic ignition actator (plastic gear drive) has lost the steel pin pressed on the end of it. This thing connects the mechanical key ignition switch to the electrical ignition switch(with pin gone will push ignition on BUT with pin gone cannot PULL ign. switch to off position),the whole steering column will have to be removed from truck to replace.Availible from Ford or parts stores--ASK for plastic ignition actuator-metal one is for 1987 to 1991 F150s.
