Question about 1995 Ford Taurus
Like the name says it, Ignition Lock Cylinder, what you need to check/replace is the Ignition Switch.
The Lock Cylinder and the Ignition Switch are joined by a rod which is the one that activates the switch functions (ON, ACC, RUN, START) the switch is mounted on top of the steering column no more than 12" from the lock cylinder. It is fastened by 2 screws.
Disconnect electrical plug, remove fasteners and with a twisting motion disconnect actuating rod from switch. Use electrical contact cleaner to remove dirt until it slides free. You can even make it work by plugging back electrical connector and rod and sliding it back and forth to make sure it is working correctly. If still does not work, replace it.
Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck.

These cars had a problem with the wiring to the starter. I had to replace the starter in the one I had. The solenoid shorts internal that causes this. if you you can get in to the starter, remove the small wire to the solenoid, use a another wire to connect to the starter and hook it to the wire you took loose, make it long enough that you can reach it, to hook / unhook, it from up by the rad.:: start the car and turn it off it it does not turn of unhook the wire you made, if the car turns off you need a new starter....

IGNITION KEY WILL NOT RELEASE
can be faulty ignition lock cylinder. I suggest to wiggle the steering wheel
a bit and see if the key gets released out. If that is not helping
then first turn steering wheel to right and try removing the key, or next turn
steering wheel to left and see if you can remove the key.
wd-40 in the ignition key hole and let it remain there for few minutes, after
that once again try to remove the key and see if that helps.
if that is not helping then ignition lock cylinder has to be removed out and
key has to be manually removed.
