2000 ford expedition wont start. Had after market alarm disconnected

This truck has a factory security system, why would another one be installed?? There is no way to know where the wiring was tapped into for the aftermarket alarm, so just get under the dash and trace the wires is all That I can suggest, remove the steering column covers to access the switch is necessary..

Hi, i bought a 1999 ford expedition from a salvage place and no keys were available for it. i found "replacement" keys with cylinder for it at autozone but am having a hard time getting the old switch out...

You will have to drill out the pin, or have a locksmith do it. If you dont do it right, the column housing will be trashed and it will cost you more money.

Ignition switch replacment

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.

Its possible that this video can helped (for Explorer)...

Good luck.
