91 ford van motor won't shut off


do you mean that when you turn ignition key to the OFF position the engine is still running? i'd say it is the ignition switch that needs looking at first then work your way through the ignition system

If you look under the the switch you will see a hole turn key on and push into the hole this should release it be carefull not to disturb the gear at the end or you will have to retime it.

99 E250 when motor is running van wont shift out of park when motor is off . when ignition is on and motor not running it will shift just fine


the shift interlock is not releasing. You are doing emergency release procedure with engine off and key in off position.
Likely you don't have brake lights either. When you step on the brake with the key ON, it releases the shift lock solenoid (and turns on the brake lights).
Check to be sure the brake light switch on the pedal arm has the wire going to it and you can hear it click on and off.Check the fuse for the brake lights too.

If your Ford Focus is not starting, and you know the battery and alternator are good, the problem could lie in the ignition system. The ignition switch is a whole cylinder inserted into the steering column that connects to the starter motor. When you change an ignition switch, you are also replacing the key.

  1. Remove the dashboard panel below the steering column in your car; it should be screwed in place. Remove the steering column's upper cover by releasing its clips with a flat-head screwdriver.
  2. Look for the audio control switch---a small device sticking out of the steering column that acts like a remote control. If one exists, release the switch's plastic locking tang with the screwdriver, and unplug the electrical connector to remove the switch.
  3. Loosen the steering column by releasing the locking lever, and remove the steering column's lower cover by pulling out the screws with the screwdriver.
  4. Use your ignition key to turn the switch to the left---the position that would activate the accessories but not start the car. Insert the screwdriver into the hole in the top of the cylinder to depress the detent spring, and pull out the cylinder with the key inside.
  5. Insert the new key into the new ignition switch, and line up the switch inside the steering column so it's in the same place the old switch was in when you removed it. Make sure the detent locks into place; then turn the switch so it's in the "Off" position.
  6. Replace all the covers and panels you removed to access the cylinder, along with the audio control switch, if applicable, in reverse order of

Things You'll Need:
  • Small flat-head screwdriver
  • Ignition switch and key

Tips & Warnings
  • Older Ford Focus models may have a different method of removing and changing the ignition switch. Check an automotive guide for your particular year and model.
  • Always disconnect the negative (black) battery cable before working on the ignition or any other electrical component of your car.

I hope helped with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

Ignition will not turn off the van, key out of van, van still on


it sounds like the small arm inside the steering colunm has broken. on my windstar it was actually two pieces. if you do not have tilt steering the job to replace it isn't too bad tho you have to pull the steering wheel and remove the lock cylinder. to test if this is correct you would need to pull the ignition switch... it's under the steering column. there is a pin on it that fits into the arms that come down from the ignition switch. remove the ignition switch and turn the key while looking up into the hole where the small arm is. if it doesn't move it is broken.

for the immediate problem just either pull the fuse for ignition or remove the breather snorkel that attaches to the throttle body and block it off with your hand.

Power to everything including sterio but dash while key is out of ignition and will not start when key is in ignition


Might be your ignition switch, or a fusable link from you battery. The switch makes more sense but i have no idea why it would screw up while you were driving. Usuall y that happens when you're starting it or shutting it off.

Need to change the ignition switch


Remove panel under steering wheel. Put key in cylinder and turn back to accessory position. Looking under lower part of steering column locate a small pin under the key cylinder. While depressing the pin turn the key backwards and pull the entire cylinder with key out of column. Good luck.
