    All of a sudden, I cannot start my 96 Tacoma pick-up truck when I push clutch pedal all the way down. I just get a click. I thought it was in need of a new battery. I replaced the battery which still had 20 % left. I installed new battery and still would not start upon pushing clutch pedal to the floor. Could someone please advise me what to do to get it started so that I can get it to a shop and is it a burned out ignition.

Need to know how to remove and replace my f 150 ingention it is a 1987 and what tools i will need


The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.
NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible. On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.
The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company.
To replace the switch:
  • Remove the ignition switch wiring harness.
  • Unbolt it from its position.
  • Bolt the new switch into position.
  • Attach the witing harness.
