Try spraying wd40 or some king of lubricant in the key cylinder. Dirt has gotten into the tumber and causing the pins inside to stick. If you get it unstuck either leave the key in and do not turn to lock position or replace the tumbler. I hope this helps. good luck.

What is yhe ckp sensor on a 1999 ford windstar

The CKP sensor is actually the Crankshaft Position Sensor. It is responsible for ignition timing. When each piston reaches the position for firing, the CKP sensor informs the engine control module. The engine control module then responds by sending a signal to the ignition coil to fire the corresponding spark plug for that piston. If the sensor is defective typically you will have a no start condition for the engine, but the engine will still turn over when you try to start it.
It is located on the front of the engine next to the harmonic balancer. You should see a plug connected to it.

Ignition tumbler pin sheared off inside, don't know how to get it out. - 1998 ford windstar

Hi AJ, You'll need to remove the ignition barrel and take it to a lock smith. To remove the barrel look underneath the plastic cowling around the steering column and you will see holes recessed into it. Remove the screws with a star (Phillips screw driver) and then remove the cowling.. Unplug the ignition switch at the connection (follow the cables downward to the multi connector) and then look at the saddle clamp which holds the unit in position. The bolts are "blind bolts' which will need to be removed. I suggest using a cold chisel or cutting slots for a flat screw driver to fit. Once removed the barrel can be removed. Regards John

I have a 1998 Ford Windstar. Got in to drive, turned the key to start and 'snap' something seems to have broke within the ignition lock cylinder... all of the accessories are on... the key...

This happened to to me with my ranger. I went and bought in ignition and a junk yard and no problems after that. That way your not out of a lot of money.

Possible causes - Low transmission fluid level

P0761 FORD Description Shift solenoid valve 3 is turned ON or OFF by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the park/neutral position (PNP) switch, vehicle speed and Engine Control Module (ECM) (throttle opening). Gears will then be shifted to the optimum position. When is the code detected? The P0761 code is detected when the ECM has detected a mechanical fault with the solenoid energized, valve stuck off code O1744- is not a code these are the ones I have found that come close
