It's a bit hard to get it in the hole in the switch. You might try unbolting the switch and trying to line up the rod with the hole. Try moving the switch back and forth to see if you have the rod engaged, before you bolt the switch down.

On my 1976 Chevy C20 pickup I go to start it and starter won't stop running I bench tested and it works fine so what could be the problem


If the starter and solenoid is good and not hanging up I would check the Ignition switch to make sure it is releasing back after turning it to the start position. Be sure key is not sticking.

Why won't it shift out of park?


There is a linkage between the ignition and the shifter that seems to have disconnected or broke. When you turn the key to the on position it unlocks the shifter in the column, remove the plastic cosmetics around the ignition and you can work the key back and forth and see the rod going up and down. If not, then replace.

I am mech inclined, but this has me stumped. jeep wont even attempt to start .. no power to solenoid, cept battery... relay is fine,ignition too. sooo....what now?


The Ignition switch needs to bee adjusted properly. There is a rod that engages the switch, this rod is connected to the ignition lock cylinder or where you turn the key.. the ignition switch itself has two mounting bolts that connect it to the steering collum loosen these two bolts and slide the switch forward towards the steering wheel as far as it will go. hold the switch in this forward position and tighten the two bolts to lock it into place. While you are there you may want to take the switch back off an make sure you remembered to reinsert the rod back into the switch in the first place!! If you go through all this and it still doesn't start take the switch back and get them to give you another. I have gotten a faulty new switch on more than one occation.

My windshiled wippers ,heater, radio, and turn lights stoped working


THE TROUBLE IS YOUR IGNITION SWITCH. THIS IS NOT THE IGNITION KEY & LOCK CYLINDER. THEY WORK TOGETHER, BUT THE ELECTRICAL IGNITION SWITCH IS ON THE STEERING COLUMN UNDER THE DASH. YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE LOWER DASH PANEL & LOWER THE STEERING COLUMN. TO GET TO THE IGNITION SWITCH. GET A NEW IGNITION SWITCH,TO SEE WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE. THE DIMMER SWITCH FOR THE HEADLIGHTS. IS MOUNTED PIGGY/BACK ON THE IGNITION SWITCH. IF YOU HAVE NEVER DONE THIS IT'S PRETTY TRICKY. THE ROD GOING IN THE DIMMER SWITCH WILL HAVE TO BE SECURED. IF IT FALLS OUT, THE STEERING WHEEL & A LOT OF OTHER NIGHTMARE STUFF WILL HAVE TO BE REMOVED, TO PUT THE ROD BACK IN PLACE. BOTH SWITCHES ARE ADJUSTABLE SO EVERYTHING WILL WORK RIGHT.

Got ignition switch off. Can not seem to get new one on as the rod now seems too long


You didn't change the rod you changed the switch. The switch on the column should be inserted into the rod and then moved up or down to lineup with the screw holes

First of all before anything else, disconnect the ground battery cable. Remove column shroud by loosening the screw on the underside, selecting position "1" for automatics and manual 3 speeds, then spreading shroud open and withdrawing out of instrument panel opening by pulling up and away from the column.

If the ignition switch is out of adjustment, that will keep it from working properly. It operates by a rod through the lock actuator rack and pinion which is driven by the key cylinder. To readjust the switch, first disconnect the ignition switch connector by carefully spreading apart the locking fingers and pulling the plug apart. Now rotate the key back and forth until you can insert a 5/64 drill bit, or something equivalent, through the locking pin hole as far as possible. The locking pin hole is located on the right of the switch next to the steering column tube. Next loosen the two ignition switch mounting nuts, turn the ignition to LOCK (feel for detent), and remove the key. Now move the switch up and down along the column to locate the mid-point of the rod lash and then re-tighten the mounting nuts, making sure to tighten top nut first to minimize any rod binding. Now remove the drill bit and reconnect the electrical connector.

If you need to replace the switch, first remove the column support bracket and lower the column. Disconnect the plug, remove the two nuts, lift the switch up vertically to disengage the actuator rod from the switch, and remove.
When you install the new switch, both the lock cylinder and the ignition switch must be in the LOCK position for correct adjustment. Turn the lock cylinder to LOCK and remove the key. The new switch will already be pinned in the Lock position with a metal shipping pin. Now install the new switch by first engaging the actuator rod to the switch, and then positioning the switch on the column and installing the nuts, but only finger tight! Move the switch up and down along the column, and when you locate the mid-point of rod lash, tighten the nuts, top nut first. Remove the lock pin, reconnect the battery ground cable, and check to see that it starts properly in Park and Neutral, and will not start in Drive or Reverse. Raise the steering column back up into position, and put bracket back on. Reinstall the shroud by spreading it around the column and through the instrument panel opening, making sure that the pin on the shroud is aligned with the upper hole on the column before installing the shroud screw.

I hope this works for you. Although I've done this before, these instructions are from the Ford Truck Shop Manual, and a Haynes Repair Manual. Good Luck!!!
