Sounds like the collapsable steering column triggered and is shorting out ignition switch. That my friend needs to be addressed by a dealer. You're also looking at a really dangerous situation if air bag goes off while your driving.

Have to tilt steering wheel to start


The electric part of the ignition switch for my '86 is under the dash at the base of the steering column, and it's actuated by a rod connecting it to the key lock. Sounds like either the rod's worn so it to longer engages the electric switch in all tilt positions, or it's a neutral switch problem. Rod wear is a high-mileage issue, but adjusting the switch (loosening bolts, sliding it microscopically back and retightening bolts, should improve it. If it's a neutral switch problem (automatic transmissions only) then the truck should start with tranny in neutral gear, regardless of tilt position. Problems there are adjusted out at the linkage adjustment under the hood at the firewall, where the linkage emerges. Good luck!

(electricity) An electric switch that is connected to the ignition switch of an internal combustion engine and prevents starting the engine unless the transmission shift lever is in the neutral or park position, or the clutch pedal is depressed.



Might try tilting the steering wheel up or down and starting in different positions, maybe loose wire in tilt.

Sounds like your ignition/key tumbler is worn. A lot of times tumblers can get worn to the point that the keys will stop working or work sometimes. Usually the key goes bad first, since they tend to get the most abuse. It is not expensive to replace. I hope this helps.

Loose or damaged wiring in the steering colum. I'd suggest having a professional repair done, most likely the steering wheel will have to be removed and there's a chance of setting off the airbag. Dangerous and expensive.
