2000 ford f250, four wheel switch locked in in cab, no front wheel drive, lock in both front wheel hubs and now have 4 wheel drive. Flip off switch inside and no longer in 4 wheel drive.


I really don't know quite how to tell you this. Everything seems to be working just fine buy your question. When your using 4 wheel drive, you engage the hubs first, then push the 4 wheel drive button or turn the switch. Ease it in and out of gear or shift on the move and you should be in 4 wheel drive at this point. To take it out of 4 wheel drive, reverse this procedure. Turn the switch off and ease forward and you will be out of 4 wheel drive. If your not going to use your 4x4, turn the hubs out to reduce ware on the axles. If you will be using 4x4 again soon, leave the hubs in and all you have to do is turn the switch to 4x4 and your set to go. I hope I explained this well enough. Good luck.

How to remove two pins holding ignition clyinder lock tumbler from 1994 mercury tracer


Removal & Installation


Before continuing with this procedure, make sure to have available a new steering wheel retaining bolt and two lock cylinder retaining bolts. Once removed, these parts lose their torque holding ability (or retention capability) and must not be reused.

  1. If equipped, disarm the air bag system and disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering wheel.
  3. Remove the combination switch.
  4. Unplug the wiring connector to the ignition switch.
  5. Remove the ignition and shifter interlock cable mounting bracket bolt and position the assembly to one side.
  6. Remove the four steering column bracket bolts and lower the steering column.
  7. Cut a groove in the ignition cylinder bracket bolts with a chisel and hammer or use a similar method.
  8. Using a screwdriver, remove and discard the bracket bolts.
  9. Remove the ignition switch lock cylinder and bracket.

c17hydro_35.gif

Use a chisel and hammer to cut a groove in the ignition cylinder bracket bolts-1991-96 models shown; 1997-99 models similar


To install:

  1. Install the new ignition switch and the bracket into position on the steering column tube.
  2. Install the new lock cylinder bolts and tighten the bolts enough to hold the switch in position.
  3. Check for proper switch operation by rotating the key to each position. If necessary, reposition the lock cylinder until it operates properly.
  4. If positioned properly, tighten the retaining bolts until the bolt head shears off.
  5. Raise and position the steering column. Tighten the bracket bolts to 80-124 inch lbs. (9-14 Nm).
  6. If equipped with tilt column, remove the upper mounting bracket retaining pin.
  7. Position the interlock cable bracket. Install and tighten the retaining bolt to 35-53 inch lbs. (4-6 Nm).
  8. Attach the wiring connector to the ignition switch.
  9. Install the combination switch.
  10. Connect the negative battery cable.
  11. Confirm operational status of the air bag system by turning the ignition key to the RUN position and visually monitoring the air bag indicator lamp in the instrument cluster. The indicator lamp should illuminate for approximately 6 seconds and then turn OFF. If the indicator lamp does not illuminate, stays ON, or flashes at any time, a fault has been detected by the air bag diagnostic monitor.
  12. Check the steering wheel, horn and combination switch functions for proper operation.

How do i remove the steering column cover to get at the ignition tumbler on a 1993 dodge dakota


CAUTION Disconnect and isolate the negative (ground) battery cable. This will disable the air bag system. Failure to disconnect the battery could result in accidental deployment and possible personal injury. Allow the system capacitor to discharge for two minutes then begin air bag system component removal. To install:
  1. Engage the electrical connectors to the ignition switch and make sure the switch locking tabs are fully seated.
  2. Before attaching the ignition switch to a tilt steering column, the transmission shifter must be in the PARK position. Also the park lock dowel pin and the column lock flag must be properly indexed before installing the switch as follows:
    1. Place the transmission shifter in the PARK position
    2. Place the ignition switch in the LOCK position. The switch is in the lock position when the column lock flag is parallel to the ignition switch terminals.
    3. Position the ignition switch park lock dowel pin so it will engage the steering column park lock slider linkage.
    4. Apply a light coating of grease to the column lock flag and the park lock dowel pin.
  3. Place the ignition switch against the lock housing opening on the steering column. Ensure that the ignition switch park lock dowel pin enters the slot in the park lock slider linkage in the steering column.
  4. Install the retaining bracket and ignition switch mounting screws, then tighten the screws to 22-30 inch lbs. (3-4 Nm).
  5. If the vehicle is equipped with a tilt steering column, install the tilt lever.
  6. With the key cylinder and the ignition switch in the LOCK position, insert the key cylinder into the ignition switch until it bottoms.
  7. Insert the ignition key into the lock cylinder. While pushing the key cylinder in toward the ignition switch, rotate the ignition key until the end of travel.
  8. Install the retaining screw into the bracket and lock cylinder. Tighten the screw to 22-30 inch lbs. (3-4 Nm).
  9. Install the steering column covers, then the tilt lever, if equipped.
  10. Connect the negative battery cable.
  11. Check for proper operation.

How do i replace the ignition switch in my 94 couger


Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the upper steering column shroud by removing the self-tapping screws.
  2. Unfasten the four bolts retaining the lower steering column shroud, then remove the shroud.
  3. Remove the lock screw, and detach the ignition switch electrical connector.
  4. Rotate the ignition switch lock cylinder to the RUN position.
  5. Remove the two screws retaining the ignition switch, and disengage the ignition switch from the actuator.
To install:

NOTE A new replacement switch will be set in the RUN position as received.

  1. Adjust the ignition switch by sliding the carrier to the ignition switch run position.
  2. Check to make sure the ignition switch lock cylinder is in the RUN position. The RUN position is achieved by rotating the ignition switch lock approximately 90 degrees from the LOCK position.
  3. Install the ignition switch assembly into the column actuator hole. It may be necessary to move the ignition switch slightly back and forth to align the ignition switch mounting holes with the lock cylinder housing threaded holes.
  4. Install the retaining screws and tighten to 53–71 inch lbs. (6–8 Nm).
  5. Attach the electrical connector to the ignition switch. Tighten the lock screw to 7–11.5 inch lbs. (0.8–1.3 Nm).
  6. Connect the negative battery cable. Check the ignition switch for proper function, including the START and ACC positions. Also, make sure the column is in the LOCK position.
  7. Install the upper and lower steering column steering shrouds.

Where is my ignition switch located on 1991 mercury cougar


The switch is located under the dash near the bottom of the steering column, u will need to remove the 2 nuts securing the steering column to the dash and drop it down to access the switch, make sure you install the switch with the same adjustment as the old one. here is a picture of a switch for your car.
