Question about 1996 Ford Thunderbird LX
the ignition units on all modern cars are designed so they cannot be removed without the key.
you normally need to turn the ignition to position I or II before you can remove the ignition.
without the key, you would normally need to change the steering lock assembly.
also, the key in most new cars has a security chip inside the key itself to confirm the identity of the key itself, and if you replace the key, you would normally need to have the ignition module reprogrammed to accept any new keys.
without a key, you will almost certainly need to get a professional to sort this out.
