Question about 1990 Ford Bronco

The ignition switch is hanging up in my 1990 ford bronco,

The key switch wont turn over in my 1990 ford bronco. it turned over but would not start the truck, it got hung up and i could not get it to go back to the off position. it is a tilt column and when pulling in on the blinker switch and moving the tilt up and down i was finally able to remove the keys. i tried to start again and now cannot remove the key. where should i start to fix this? remove the ignition switch ? any help would be great, thanks

I just had that same problem on a silverado. Yes, you have to replace the switch. Autozone has a tool you can use to remove the steering wheel. If you are not mechanically inclinced you can still do this. Removing the steering wheel sounds scary, or at least it did to me, but it wasnt bad at all.

How to replace ignition switch/tumbler on a 1995 Ford Bronco


Do you still have the ignition key and will the ignition key cylinder switch turn? If so, you turn the key to Run, press the button on the bottom of the steering column that's accessible once the shroud is removed, then pull the key and cylinder switch out of the column.

If you no longer have a working key, then things get a bit more tricky.

I don't recall what year Ford started using the PATS system, but if your 1995 has PATS you'll need to have the PATS module reprogrammed to the new key before the car will start.

I'm trying to sell my 1990 Bronco, and the battery died last month. I switched the selector under the dash to off, as recommended by installing mechanic. But now I replaced the Truck battery, turned the...


It sounds like the disconnect of the battery has caused the anti-theft system to kick in. Anti-theft overrides the key. There is a chip in the key fob and a chip in the ignition lock, if they are paired and both present, the Engine Control Module releases power to the starter and the ignition circuits. When you connected your battery, I am guessing the key and fob was in your pocket.

Disconnect the battery for at least 2 hours. Hold the negative and positive battery leads together for 5 minutes to fully dissipate any residual power. Very important bit, PUT THE KEY IN THE IGNITION, but not turned on. Reconnect the battery. Wait 15 minutes for the system to self check and reset. Start the vehicle.

Actuaror rod goes down when I urn the key but the key wontpush it down enough to start it


The switch that the ignition actuator rod pushes on can be adjusted upward. Make sure the steering column itself isn't damaged though you can damage the switch if the column is worn out and you adjust it upward

You will have to replace the connector, the contacts have been overheated and you will have more problems, if you can't get a repair connector from Ford try getting a good used one, all Ford models used the hardshell section, you may have to move around wires and splice in any new connectors needed. Before you start make a simple diagram of where the wires go.
