I had a similar problem with an '86 Bronco. It would start just fine but wouldn't turn off. The problem I experienced was with the linkage between the key switch and the ignition switch. When you start the truck it pushes the linkage, when you turn it off it pulls the linkage. A very small pin had fallen out that allowed the key switch to pull the linkage back and turn off the ignition switch. I wasn't able to find a replacement part and ended up drilling and tapping the hole where the pin went and making my own "threaded in" pin (used lots of loctite). You really have to take a lot of the steering column apart to get to the piece in question. If you are still having the problem contact me thru FixYa and I'll send you the diagrams I have.

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.

Key stuck in ignition but it will turn, and steering column won't lock and car won't start.

you most likely have a bad key switch cylinder assembly. you can try to spray wd40 solvent into the switch before you have the switch replaced,but sometimes it's a switch replacement that repairs the problem. have you inspected your ignition key to look for damage to the key itself? try a spare key to make sure it's the key,and not the key switch. you can also try turning the key while turning the steering wheel at the same time to get the key to work.sometimes the switch locks when parked in a bind,such as on a hill,or against a curb and so on. try this 1st before you have the ignition switch replaced. AAA auto club,if you're a member covers part of the replacement costs for a replacement switch also. you may have coverage through a cell phone more thing to try, if you have a tilt steering column,try to reposition the steering wheel to see if you can get the key to turn. remember never force it enough to break your key off into the switch! thank you for choosing!

I have a 1988 fullsize bronco and one day it wouldn't start

down under the dash on the side of the steering column you will see a ingition switch they go bad,remove the two wire harness they only go back in onw way so dont worry,take the two small screws out remove the rod and take off and put the new one back.align the rod into the new switch place it on the column as if it were hooked up.turn the key at the same time you hold the switch in place and start the truck. after you get it adjusted then put it on and tighten the switch.
