1996 ford crown Victoria: car starts put won't shut down. Ignition feels way too free. Obviously something is broken inside. Also, the steering wheel doe not lock any more either. I changed the cylinder but it's deeper than that. Recommendation?

You will have to remove the steering wheel ( may need steering wheel puller after nut removed ) and the turn signal switch to gain access to a lock pin on the side of the key tumbler assembly , It will either be visible through a small hole or a very thin punch out in the face of the switch housing. push down on the pin and pull the switch straight out ( you need the key installed to allow this function , but as you said it is already there but broken off )
Had a similar problem. Solved it two ways first place key in the 3 position move gear to N then start and it will shift easily. Second solution check brake light fuse, it is probably blown replace it and gears will shift OK.
Yea, you can test it. Put your multi-mater to Ohms and put the leads on the sensor. You should have around 700-900 Ohms and this is good.
test the output Voltage of the sensor by putting your mater on Voltage AC and (with the leads on the same way) Now crank the engine over (it won't start because the sensor is disconnected) and look for a reading over 200mV
That's how your test your Crankshaft Position Sensor.

Its the steering arm, under the hood drivers side, it connects the steering column shaft to the steering gear box. The small universals get really rusty. causes it to bind. don't try to lube them it doesn't work. About $50.00 from ford.
take plastic cover off bottom of column that is arund switch.there is a little pin hole where the switch is in the column on the bottom edge stick something the size of the hole in an turn switch to on position push the pin in hole and remove switch,be careful not to damage electric part on switch then put new switch in in same position as the one you removed then rotate back and forth to verify its working properly
