EASY. with key turned to ON, you will see a small hole on bottom of steering column cover about an inch from the steering wheel. take a small screwdriver or coat hanger rod and find the little button about 2 inches from where you inserted the key, now depress that button (up) and with the button depressed, pull out the cylinder. If you have the new cylinder, you will see where the button is in relation to the end/ Cylinders are made by Motorcraft, Ford and Standard. and will come with 2 new keys.

Why won't my key turn?

Ignition cylinder could be bad, it happens. Try turning wheel one way while trying, then try the other way. If still no then either your using the wrong key or cylinder is bad. You can replace it yourself as long as you don't have chip in your pretty sure if that is case your better off having dealer do it. U can ask your local parts store about that.

How to replace an Ignition 1990 Mercury Grand Marquis

Good Evening. If your ignition still turns this will be an easier scenario. Straight down from your key cylinder towards the middle of your coulmn you will see holes for the screws that hold the cover together and you will also see 1 hole without a screw in it which is the one you will need to push a 1/8 drill bit up through there, you will turn the ignition forward and you will feel the bit move up, at that point pull the ignition cylinder out. If your ignition does not turn, get a little longer bit and you will have to drill that pin out and then pull your ignition out. I hope this helps and you have a good evening.

Need to change flasher relay in 1997 Mercury Grand marquis . where is it?

From the 1997 Mercury Grand Marquis 4.6L SFI 8cyl repair manual, the Flasher is located behind left side of instrument panel. The turn signal and emergency flashers are attached to the interior fuse panel. They are replaced in the same manner as the fuses and circuit breakers.

Car will turn over good, but not start. car is getting fuel.

could be a clogged fuel filter, a clogged fuel sock (inside tank) or bad injectors. Also, try taking the gas cap off and see if it starts. if that's it, you need to replace the cap.
