This is likely caused by a broken ignition actuator rod inside the steering column, if you are unable to shut the car off then you can unhook the battery and then unplug the black relay on the left side of the engine compartment this will shut off the engine until you can get it repaired. Replacement of the actuator rod requires some special tools and timing of the rod and gears can be a bit complicated. Please rate this info this will help me out thankyou RJ

Can a bad ignition switch cause a 1975 f250 to start when key is turned and then stop running when key is released?


Yes that is the classic symptom of a defective ignition switch. They were recalled for this years 18 years ago. I am a retired Ford dealer tech.

Why can't I unlock my ignition and start my car?


Put one hand on the steering wheel and rotate slightly left and right alternatively whilst turning the ignition key at the same time with the other hand. This might release the steering wheel and start ignition.

Hope this helps.

IGNITION KEY WILL NOT RELEASE

It 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.

----------

Spray 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.

---------

But if that is not helping then ignition lock cylinder has to be removed out and key has to be manually removed.
