Different switches can have the terminals in the same place but use them differently. Are the terminal labels identical between the two? Hopefully you made a diagram of the wiring before you made changes. If so, make another diagram showing both switches and what terminals connect in each switch position. Are they the same? If not, figure out how to rewire to get the same functionality. The first mistake in troubleshooting is to think you did everything right. We all suffer the illusions created by memory and our senses which is why we have axioms like "measure twice, cut once".
It worked before you replaced the battery and the switch, therefore doing that work created a problem. The switch using its terminals differently would be a good place to look.
Fortunately MTD has manuals and good stuff on their web site at http://www.yardmachines.com or at http://www.mtdproducts.com

Changed ignition switch now security light stays on and truck starts and kills


You need to relearn the passlock system (security). There are 2 ways. One is with a scanner, which most diy'er wont own an expensive one to do it this way, here is the manual way. Start the truck and let it run until it dies. The security light should then be flashing. Leave the key in the run position until the security light stops flashing (about 10-15mins). After the light stops flashing turn the key off. Try to start the truck again. It should do the same thing (run for a few seconds and then die with the security light flashing). Again wait for 10-15 mins for the light to stop flashing and then turn the key off and repeat the process one last time. That's a total of 3 times. Once you finish the process the 3rd time. Let the truck sit for a minute with the key off. It should now be programmed and start and run normally.

New battery In mercedes no power


I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

Ignition switch in Toyota Land cruiser not working


sounds like the inside workings of the barrel are worn out or broken. you will probably need to take the barrel out and replace it . Before you put the new barrel in you may need to take both new and old barrel to a locksmith and get them to change the slides over from the old one to the new one, or you can do it yourself but it is a bit fiddly. If you don't change the slides then the new ignition key won't fit the doors as well as the ignition. hope this helps

How to change an ignition switch in a 68 chevy pickup truck


turn switch to off position. with a straightened out paperclip insert in small hole in face of ignition switch near where you put the key in. With the clip in place turn the key counterclockwise, after it turns pull straight out on the key, the entire lock cylinder should come out if you have done everything correctly. Once the lock is out unscrew the chrome ring that holds the switch in the dash. Put in new switch, install chrome ring and tighten. Push lock cylinder in and turn clockwise, it should lock in.

2000 Olds Bravada ignition


Okay .. had the EXACT same problem - word for word .. turns out, that my positive battery cable was corrodid badly.. the ignition switch wasnt getting any power or signal - so it didnt know the trans was in park, so it locked the key in place... and all power cut off obviously because no juice was going thru the cable.
Apparently however.. you will get almost the exact same symptoms if the ignition switch burns out... so first test the battery cables themselves.. if they are fine .. then plan on replacing the ignition switch.
