Question about 1995 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

I have a 1995 Ford Mustang GT that wouldn't start and wouldn't turn off from the ignition. Is it bad connections? Bad tumblers? Also there is a blinking theft light on the dash. Can I fix this myself?

Crank but won't start

You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.

Took my ford focus to a dealer because key would not turn either way. They said it was the tumbler and would have to be replaced. They jusy called and said they installed new tumbler and reprogramed the...

The reason that the key wouldn't turn must have come from a malfunction of the ignition switch or the connecting rod, rather than the just the tumbler. Since the dash lights & gauges work now, at least part of the ignition switch is working, but apparently not the part that's engaged when the switch is turned to the "start" position.
By replacing just the tumbler, the dealership tech would have jiggled the connecting rod just enough to reseat it (and fix the jam that was causing the key to fail to turn in the tumbler), but didn't fix the real problem, which seems to be a worn out ignition switch or worn connecting/actuating rod.

I have a 95 mustang that starts runs for awhile until stop at a light then dies what can cause this I changed the fuel.filter cleaned the throttle body and the mass airflow sensor

what about the idle air control valve,for a 95 they should be adjustable. (some parts have a tiny access hole).then there is the EGR when you running and coming to a stop there are time the pintle doent close on time, you can try do disconnect the line to the EGR just to test it out to see if the fault is there but do not leave disconnected not only is it emission violation but it can make combustion so hot internally as to put a hole in the piston but just to test on coming to a stop sign to see if the problem is EGR related.

1998 ford mustang gt the key in the ignition stuck in on , had to disengage battery why is it doing this and what do i need to do ?

The ignition lock is hooked up to the ignition switch by a rod. I've seen the switch go bad but the connecting rod is plastic and can also break which is what it sounds like happened. You can start the car because the rod is pushed to start but when you try to turn it off it can't pull the rod because it is broken. The fix involves pulling the column apart. It can be dangerous ( the air bag ) and you need some special tools.

1995 Mustang GT, car wont turn off, replaced ignition. Help?

when you pulled out the old ignition, your not supposed to move anything, other than clock the new one to have the keys match the old one. any ways sounds like you need to pull the tumbler out, and hold the outer case, while turning the key, then re-insert it in. plain and simple you just dont have it clocked correctly

My 1995 Ford Mustang won't cut off have to

bad contacts in ignition switch, which is located where you stick the key in. go to a lock smith.... i stopped by one time because i had a bad tumbler it was real loose, and i asked the locksmith if he worked on cars and he said yes, i said can you replace this for me, i had the part already, but he pulled may steering wheel apart like he did this all the time, took him ten minutes and i had a whole new ignition switch, granted today cars now have air bag systems, which might make it a little harder for them, but you should ask them, you never know.

One of the wires on your ignition feed is possibly wrong, causing the engine to switch off when leaving the ignition.
