Hello there sboris86,

Changing the switch is easy. Getting to it is a bit involved.

You'll need some specialized tools.

  • A steering wheel puller
  • Lock plate compressor
  • Torx drivers
  • Metric sockets
  • Breaker bar
  • Marker or paint pen
  • Patience
To keep this reasonably sized, I'm going to assume an above average familiarity with the tools and components. If you want clarification on something, just ask.
BTW, this took a while, I expect a 'FixYa' rating for all this. Sound fair? OK.

Heres the procedure:
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable
  • Remove the steering wheel shroud ( 7mm socket).
  • Remove horn contact (watch the spring, don't lose it)
  • Spread and remove the retaining clip.
  • Use the breaker bar to remove the nut.
  • Mark the wheel and column for reassembly
  • Break out the steering wheel puller and pull the wheel
  • GENTLY pry the plastic shaft lock cover off the column
  • Screw the lock plate compression tool on to the column and press the lock plate down
  • Remove the retaining ring. Use whatever tool works for you on this one. Once removed, release the lock plate and remove it.
  • Unscrew and remove the the hazard knob.
  • Still with me? Good we're almost halfway there. Just kidding
  • Remove the turn signal lever.
  • Remove the canceling cam and turn switch assembly (three screws). Let it hang.
  • Your there. Remove the cylinder retaining screw (2 o'clock position inside the column).
  • Turn the key to the ON position and pull it out.
Reverse this procedure for reassembly. If you need additional info or have other questions, just click the ASK button.

Remember: Good things come to those who Rate!

Mike

Need to know how to program new ignition switch & cylinder


At you year make and model the factory alarm was just the pellet that disabled starter,the alarm was part of the ignition switch if anything you will need to replace the aftermarket alarm. A repair will cost you more than to replace the unit,You will have to cancel the aftermarket alarm under the dash and restore the ignition wire that is spliced for the alarm relay.

I think you have a bad ignition switch, not the ignition lock cylinder. they are 2 different things.

Section 11-05: Steering Column Switches 1996 Taurus, Sable Workshop Manual
REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Ignition Switch Removal
  1. Disconnect battery ground cable (14301).
  1. Remove lower instrument panel steering column cover (04459).
  1. Rotate ignition switch lock cylinder (11582) to the RUN position.
  1. Disconnect the ignition switch electrical connector.
  1. Remove the two screws retaining ignition switch (11572).
  1. Disengage the ignition switch from the actuator.
Installation
  1. NOTE: A new replacement ignition switch assembly will be set in the RUN position as received.

    Adjust the ignition switch by sliding the carrier to the ignition switch RUN position.
  1. Make sure that the ignition switch lock cylinder is in the RUN position. The RUN position is achieved by rotating the ignition switch lock cylinder approximately 90 degrees from the LOCK position.
  1. Install the ignition switch pin into the actuator. It may be necessary to move the ignition switch slightly back and forth to align the ignition switch mounting holes with the lock cylinder housing threaded holes.
  1. Install retaining screws. Tighten to 5.6-7.9 Nm (50-69 lb-in).
  1. Connect electrical connector to ignition switch.
  1. Connect battery ground cable. Check ignition switch for proper function, including START and ACC positions. Also, make certain that the column is in the LOCK position.

Car was stolen ignition was ripped out of 2002 grandam, now car won't start with ignition and security light keeps flashing


groan.....gunna need a bit more info. but i'll try. What portion of the ignition was ripped out? The tumbler + switch? If so, you might need to get the car's system resent to recognize that it has a new ignition put in. Sime vehicles have a theft prevention system in place to prevent the vehicle from running if its been hot wired. Your best bet would be to replace the damaged ignition components (You did not mention if you did or not). If it still doesn't work after you have replced all of the ignition components. You can try to reset the vehicle (doesn't work on all) disconnect negative battery terminal and go back into vehicle and press down the brake pedal for about 30 seconds then reconnect battery and try it....good luck, hope this helps

Does it start and die after 1-2 seconds or just cranks and never fires? Did it run before you installed the computer or are you trying to cure a no start problem?
