Question about 1996 Ford F250 Crew Cab
The other day I tried to turn my truck off and it wouldn't shut off. The ignition seemed like it wasn't "clicking" into any positions. It turned to the left and right to the extent it normally does, but the "shut off" was not engaging. I have two gas tanks, and one was empty, so I drove home and let it "run out of gas". But the battery died because it was still in the "on" position. I bought a new ignition, pulled the steering wheel, bought a new battery and replaced it and the same problem still exists. In fact, as soon as I hooked the battery up, all of the accessories came on. The ignition is clearly still in "on". What could be the problem?
You need to replace the electrical part of the ignition not the lock and key.And check the plug on it because it may be burned also.You may be under a recall buy ford on that so it would not hurt to check with them and see if your vin is covered. Hope this helps you....Dan

If your ignition switch is on the steering col. you will have to pull it apart, check your ignition switch which is connected by a plastic rod ensure the rod moves back and forth while you operate the switch. if not the spring loaded the spring may be missing or busted. I am having the same problem with a 1996 ford.
