Question about 1992 Ford Ranger
Buy a chevrolet!!!!!
Posted on Nov 19, 2013
Thats ok mam,i,m 62,retired with 19 yrs experience in automotive field.Ford cars and trucks.And several different importsBut i quit in 1996.
I,m thinking that the,gears may be out of timing and the actuating rod that moves the ignition switch contacts at or near the bottom of the steering colmn.
You should repair the key cylinder, and the tumbler that the key actuates.Then you may also need to adjust the switch assy contact box at the bottom.These are a high wear items over a lot of yrs, and useage,and might be best to pay one time, and fix it right.I used to repair tilt steering wheels,and found that its less costly just to buy a good used steering column with key and all,but now days i,m not so sure! ??? hope i was helpful!
Good luck on this problem,as i know costs are high every where.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The steering lock/ignition switch/warning buzzer switch assembly is attached to the steering column by special bolts whose heads shear off upon installation. The bolts must be drilled out to remove the assembly or be removed with an appropriate tool. The bolts may also be removed with a hammer and chisel by notching the bolts and tapping them counterclockwise with the hammer and chisel.
The ignition switch or warning switch can be replaced without removing the steering lock assembly. The ignition switch is on the back of the assembly and the warning switch is on the side.
CAUTION The models covered by this guide may be equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), which uses an air bag. Whenever working near any of the SRS components, such as the impact sensors, the air bag module, steering column and instrument panel, disable the SRS, as described in Chassis Electrical .
