SOURCE: ford F 250 1996 need

1) Remove steering wheel.
2) Remove the turn signal lever.
3) Remove two-piece plastic column cover that hides column where it meets dash.
4) Drop column down and remove ignition switch. Put column back up but do nottighten bolts.
5) Remove ignition lock cylinder.
6) Remove lock cylinder gear (snap ring pliers required). It is down in thehole that you took the lock cylinder out of.
7) Disconnect turn signal switch harness and then pull turn signal switch outand let it hang by wires.
8) Remove ignition lock cylinder collar (slide it over the turn signal switch).
9) Press actuator and rod towards dash so you can remove the actuator gear (thething with the gear teeth on it that is linked to the actuator and rod).
10) Remove the snap ring on steering shaft.
11) Remove the little round metal bar (multiple bends in it) and two clips thatoperate the tilt. PAY ATTENTION HERE - there is a little spring like out of penthat is behind it with a metal cap on it. Remove that so you don't lose it.
12) Drive the pin out of the tilt lock lever on the underside of the column.There is a spring underneath it with a plastic pad so pull those out too so youdon't lose them.
13) Thread a bolt or screw into the inside threaded pins that hold the tilttogether and pull them out. You should put the tilt all the way up before youdo this so you unload the spring.
14) Slide the tilt collar towards you on the shaft enough to get the actuatorand rod out.
15) Pull the actuator and rod out. Put in vise and drive the little pin out toseparate rod and actuator. Reassemble with new actuator. TIP - use a pair ofpliers to press the pin back in so you don't have to hit on it with a hammer.
16) Put a light coat of grease on the slides where the actuator goes and putthe assembled actuator and rod back into column.
17) Put a light coat of grease on the swivelwhere the tilt collar goes and press the pins back in. TIP - You will befighting the spring to do this so it helps to stick a screw in one side to holdit in place, then line up the other side and put a pin in. Once you have thepin in on one side, replace the screw on the first side with the other pin.
18) Reassemble starting with step #12 and go in reverse. TIP - Put a lightcoating of grease in the lock cylinder collar where the actuator gear andcylinder gear go.

This is NOT my original instruction sheet but you will find it will work for you.

Removal & Installation

403ff30.gif
Blade-type connector ignition switch on steering column, 1980 and later models

  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Remove steering column shroud and lower the steering column.
  3. Disconnect the switch wiring at the multiple plug.
  4. Remove the two nuts that retain the switch to the steering column.
  5. Lift the switch vertically upward to disengage the actuator rod from the switch and remove switch.
  6. When installing the ignition switch, both the locking mechanism at the top of the column and the switch itself must be in LOCK position for correct adjustment.
To hold the mechanical parts of the column in LOCK position, move the shift lever into PARK (with automatic transmissions) or REVERSE (with manual transmissions), turn the key to LOCK position, and remove the key. New replacement switches, when received, are already pinned in LOCK position by a metal shipping pin inserted in a locking hole on the side of the switch.
  1. Engage the actuator rod in the switch.
  2. Position the switch on the column and install the retaining nuts, but do not tighten them.
  3. Move the switch up and down along the column to locate the mid-position of rod lash, and then tighten the retaining nuts.
  4. Remove the locking pin, connect the battery cable, and check for proper start in PARK or NEUTRAL.
Also check to make certain that the start circuit cannot be actuated in the DRIVE and REVERSE position.
  1. Raise the steering column into position at instrument panel. Install steering column shroud.

How to change ignition switch


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering column shroud and lower the steering column.
  3. Disconnect the ignition switch electrical harness connector.
  4. Remove the 2 nuts retaining the ignition switch to the steering column housing.
  5. Lift the ignition switch upward to disengage the actuator rod from the switch and remove the switch.

To install:
When installing the ignition switch, both the locking mechanism at the top of the column and the switch itself must be in the LOCK position for correct adjustment. To hold the mechanical parts of the column in the LOCK position, move the shift lever into PARK (with automatic transmissions) or REVERSE (with manual transmissions), turn the key to the LOCK position, and remove the key. New replacement switches, when received, are already pinned in the LOCK position by a metal shipping pin inserted in a locking hole on the side of the switch.
  1. Engage the actuator rod in the ignition switch.
  2. Place the ignition switch on the steering column housing and loosely install the 2 retaining nuts.
  3. Move the switch up or down along the column to locate the mid-position of the actuator rod lash, then tighten the retaining nuts to 47-64 inch lbs. (5-7 Nm).
  4. Raise the steering column into position at instrument panel. Install steering column shroud.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Remove the locking pin, connect the negative battery cable, and verify that the engine will only crank in PARK and NEUTRAL . Also check to make certain that the start circuit cannot be actuated in the DRIVE and REVERSE positions.

I cant figure out how to wire a push button ignition on my 1985 ford f-150


If you're looking for wiring a push-button starter, then you just need to connect one terminal of a momentary type switch to the solenoid (little) post on your starter, and the other wire to a ground source. This will only crank the engine, so you would need an additional switch, or the actual ignition switch to switch on the accessories, and the ignition system.

Ford Expedition 2001 that wont shift out of Park


Shift Interlock System
The shift interlock system prevents the shifting from PARK unless the brake pedal (2455) is depressed. The shift interlock system consists of a shift lock actuator (3Z719) mounted at the base of the steering column tube (3514). If the ignition switch (11572) is in the RUN position, the shift lock actuator is continually on unless the brake pedal is depressed.

Thier is also the shift lock actuator ! plus wiring . You have a short to ground on that circuit . Do you know how to Find a short ? videos on youtube .
None of the power windows work ? Check for broken wires inside the rubber boot from the body to drivers door !
Videos on youtube for testing power window circuits .
