Most likely the switch is out of adjustment, either that or you may have a damaged wire or connector

Wind shield wipers only work on high speed. no slow or intermitent .

This is usually a problem in the turn stalk. The usual fix is to replace the entire unit which is called the MFS for multi function switch.

The process for replacing this switch is to disconnect the NEG cable of the battery and turn the Ignition switch to RUN or ACC position. At the bottom of Ignition switch there is a spring loaded pin which is accessible from a hole in the plastic cover of the steering column. Use a drill bit or small pin to press on the spring loaded pin in the Ignition switch.

When you pull up with the Ignition key, the lock cylinder should slide out. This is necessary to remove the chrome Ignition key flange to allow the column cover to slide apart. There are about 4 additional screws holding the column cover together. You will have to move the tilt in the column back and forth to wiggle the column cover free.

The MFS is secured with 2 screws with recessed Torx heads. There are several connectors with delicate clips to unfasten. You change out the old for new parts and then reinstall by reversing the above instructions.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you. The MFS part runs $85 to $160 depending on the supplier. With the changing of this switch you will also gain new components for your turn signals contained within the unit.

Have 1996 marquis have to get ignition out to get top cover off how do i get ignition out

Hello, The steering column cover has several access holes on the bottom of the plastic. There are 4 screws in the cover and they are phillips head. There is one hole in the cover bottom to access a spring loaded pin on the ignition.

You need to disconnect the NEG cable of the battery. Then turn the key to the ACC or RUN position (depends on model) to line up the parts inside the switch. The cover on the column will need to be removed if you want to remove the entire switch and not just the locking core. You will know when you push a drillbit or nail into the spring pin release hole under the Keyswitch.

You should be able to use your keys to pull the cylinder right out of the lock if its in the RUN or ACC position. There are usually 2 special screws holding the Ignition switch to the column. These are theft-resistant shaped screws and the screwdriver or screwbit is available at an Autoparts store.

Take a screwdriver or sharp object and scribe a mark on the steering column where the ignition switch is positioned so you can duplicate the position. Change out the switch and then temporarily install the lock core and temporarily connect the battery. Start the car, move the gearshift, if everything is in alignment; everything will work. If something does not work you may have to adjust the ignition switch beyond the scribe marks until it does work. Then position the ignition switch tightly.

Remove the battery cable once more, pull the ignition core and reassemble the plastic and drop the lock core into position. Once everything is together, reconnect the battery and it should be like new.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you.

99 ford expedition put car in gear and the radio and wipers cut out

Hello, I'll take a shot at solving this one. It would either be a chaffed wire in the steering column or a bad Interlock switch under the dash by the pedal levers. Check wire connectors for corrosion on either end of the steering column. Check the Interlock first.

To remove the plastic cover on the Column you will need to pull the Ignition lock. You will need to disconnect the NEG battery cable and have the Key turned to either ACC. or RUN position to remove the cylinder after pressing the spring lock under the Ignition switch. There is a hole under the keyswitch to put a punch and press upwards to release the lock cylinder. This is necessary to remove because of the flare on the cylinder core preventing the plastic cover from clearing the lock.

You will need to tilt the steering wheel to remove the plastic cover. Then reconnect the Battery and test the circuits. Would like to know what you finally find as the problem to add to my bag of tricks.

I hope my solution is very helpful in fixing your Expedition.

New starter but car wont start have just told me what is wrong with it!!!
check power in, power out at the ignition switch...likely it has failed. switch is on the top of the steering column under the dash and is sometimes easier to reach if you disconnect the column from the dash and permit the sterering wheel to rest on the seat.
