It sounds like the door switch needs replacing. They are dealer only products but cant imaging it would be costly. In the mean time try to duct or gorilla tape to keep it from killing your battery & having to unhook battery every time you want to go somewhere. Good Luck & I hope this helps you out/
Take the plastic cover off the steering column, it's a black rectangular piece just to the left and down from the key switch. It is held in there by 2 springs, push these two springs in and the ignition switch will fall down. Unhook the terminals that are hooked to it, and replace with a new one.
They get real sloppy the ignition switches on most older fords.....unhook your battery then put the key in the run position and on the bottom of the steering column there is a small hole that is acceess to the release pin for that ignition swich ..you need a small screwdriver of lung thin punch to push that in and your ignition switch just comes our .
Go to the local wreckers or dealer and get a replacemen ........Keep in mind the key will be different from before so make sure the used one comes with a key
If you had battery unhooked and assuming that it is turning over try this
Put your key in turn it on dont start wait 10 mins remove key wait 10 seconds repeat this a total of 3 times. If that dont work try a different key do the same thing. This relearns your key to the ignition it started with Gm cars and trucks from 1999 to to 2006. It is a big problem but there is no recall that I know of. If that dont work a dealer needs to probably replace and reprogram your ignition switch and keys
