1996 ford taurus ignition switch does not work no resistance when turning the key in the on or off position.


It sounds as if the rod or ignition key gear may be broken. The ignition switch is actually on top of the steering colume under the dash. The key turns a gear that is connected to a rod. The rod travels down to the actual electrical ignition switch. If you are not feeling any tension at all when you turn the key, either the rod or gear has broken. In either case the steering wheel all the way down to the key tumblers will need to taken apart. Hope this helps.

Starting Problems


there is a rod that goes from your ignition switch down to a box in the steering colum. and when you turn the key it pushes the rod wich inturn conects the electrical circut and tells the starter to engage. you can fix this by takeing the compleat colum out of the car and rebuilding it but if you can finda colum in a junk yard it would be alot easier and faster to replace the whole colum n if you do finda a colum in a junk yard make sure they have the key for the ignition before you buy it from them
