You can sometimes order a new Ignition from a place like CarPartsplus. Do a search in google for : 2002 Ford Ranger Ignition and check out one of the online stores that it shows you. If not there you can try a Junk Yard but make sure you get at least 1 key with it. Otherwise you'll need a locksmith to make a key. Good Luck.

A local mechanic can fix it....that is a very easy cylnder to replace. You might be able to do it yourself...let me know if you would like detailed instructions.

If you goto a mechanic, domt let them charge you more than 1.3 hours labor...that is what the time guide calls for. And the lock cyl. should cost you no more than $50.

There is nothing that can be done short of calling a locksmith or teraing out the ignition switch.

Don't panic. It is in a bind. Try to turn the wheel as your turn the key. Jiggle it...it should free up.

I have a 93 Ford Ranger (2.3L 4cyl 5spd manual) and the key lock cylinder is going bad, meaning the key sticks & then won't turn the ignition for 2-4 tries, but then if I turn the ignition switch...


You will need a new lock cyl. which is best purchased from ford, the tumblers are the culpret in your situation, you shouldn't need to remove the steering wheel the cyl can be removed after taking the trim bessels off, also if yours has the big black plastic key you have a transponder antitheft system so it is best to us ford cyl and code it to your original key so no need to reprogram keys, IE aftermarket cyl w. new keys.
The cyl should be about 100+ depending where you live.

Ignition key won't turn


I'm not sure exactly what all the details are however, sometimes your steering wheel will turn after parking, just alittle enough to place some pressure on the lock. you might try turning the steering wheel and see if this doesn't take some pressure off the lock allowing it to turn. I hope this the problem and it helps.

Good luck,

Spare tire key 2002 super duty


Is it a factory installed lock? If it is you might be able to get one at a ford dealer. They can cut a key for door and ignition if you give them the truck's vin (you have to show proof of ownership, registration, title) I don't know if they can use the vin for the spare tire key, but if they can't, drive to a good locksmith, they should be able to make one up w/ the truck @ their store. countrycurt0

Ignition switch 1994 ranger


If it were me, I'd take the Vin # down to the Dealer and get a key made(and take back the ignition you bought). As far as I know without the original key to allow the release pin to depress, the only possible chance might be to try another Ford key and it may release the ignition basket. Or call a locksmith and he can make a key for probably $50. **Or (ha ha) I could make a copy of my '94 Ranger key and send you a copy ! :>)
