Question about 1983 Ford F150
I need to replace the ignition switch in my for f150 pickup truck but i am not sure how to put in the ignition switch
Sure I just replaced mine today. Its easy, first get a scratch awl or a very small pilips screw driver, put your key in the ignition and turn it to the postion where it would be if your vehicle would be in if the motor was running, next take that sharp scratch awl or small philips screw driver and on the botom side of the switch housing pointing to about your right knee when sitting in the drivers seat you will see a small hole just under the base of the ignition switch a small hole, put that sharp scratch awl in that small hole and with one hand wiggle the key back and forth in the running positon, you will feel the awl go in a little bit and after that pull the key and the ignition out of the side of the steering column, the key and the igntion will all come out as one unit. The same thing goes for putting the new one in place. Good Luck!!
