Hopefully its just the ignition inhibitor switch on the gearbox.

Can a bad ignition switch cause a 1975 f250 to start when key is turned and then stop running when key is released?


Yes that is the classic symptom of a defective ignition switch. They were recalled for this years 18 years ago. I am a retired Ford dealer tech.

Why can't I unlock my ignition and start my car?


Put one hand on the steering wheel and rotate slightly left and right alternatively whilst turning the ignition key at the same time with the other hand. This might release the steering wheel and start ignition.

Hope this helps.

2003 pontiac grand am 3.4 having problems with ignition.put new ignition now it wont start because of the theft system.does the new ignition need to be programed?


Yes the system has to be programmed and you can do this yourself.Just make sure the battery is fully charged and attempt to start then release the key but do not turn it off just release it as if it had started.the security light will remain on for about 10 minutes and then go off.After it goes off.Turn the ignition off and wait 5 seconds.Then turn the key on and start the car.It should start and run now.The body control module has learned the new key.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Can't remove key from ignition. battery is dead


If the battery is dead, the ignition keys will not release from the ignition. If there is no signal from the transmission shifter that it's in park since the battery is dead, then the ignition lock will not release the keys.  After charging the battery or jumping the blazer to start it and the key's still will not release, try this. 
There is a "plunger" as part if the ignition. Under the steering wheel there is a small removable cap that you can take off and put a small screw driver up into and press the plunger in and it will release the key. Good luck and hope this helps, Keep me posted be glad to help.
