I have a 93 Ford Ranger (2.3L 4cyl 5spd manual) and the key lock cylinder is going bad, meaning the key sticks & then won't turn the ignition for 2-4 tries, but then if I turn the ignition switch towards me, to accessories position, I can unlock the steering wheel & the kry turns over...for now!....my brother told me that on his old Chevy, he could tighten this O-ring looking part around the key lock cylinder itself, with a pair of channel locks & that tightened his up... Can you do the same wit

Key stuck in ignition, no electrical power. I have a 2005 Volvo S40. When I put the key in the ignition I was able to turn it past 0, but upon doing that all power was lost and I was unable to return the key back to the 0 position and the automatic shifter locked in the park position. I have tried moving the steering wheel to all positions and also tried to jump start the vehicle. I am at a loss for what to do and there is no local dealership for me to consult with.

My 1983 El Camino's ignition, on the steering column, will turn, freely, all of the way through to the end of the path, without engaging the starter. It will still lock into 'lock position' when removing the key and will remain locked until the key is reinserted. Power still remains with the radio, lights, and horn. Is this the switch or key tumbler failure? I thank you now for your response. Randy Sawyer.


Is the key loose in the cyclinder. it is likely the switch or the switch auctuator rod.... if it is either of those two the quick way to test is to remove the switch from under the dash... if the arm that moves the switch moves freely it is likely ... 1985 Chevrolet El Camino

I need to remove the ignition switch from a Ford F-150. The ignition key is missing. Acting on the advice of a locksmith, I was advised to drill through the wafers in the lock in order to turn it to the ''On'' position, however the cylinder still won't, even under extreme pressure. Is there an alternate way to remove the ignition switch from the steering column


No, you have to have the switch in the on position, you either have to drill the ignition out (1/2" drillbit) or chisel the tumblers out of the cylinder... using excessive force may break the column...which is definatly way more $ than a lock cylinde ... 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab

The starter on my pickup keeps running even after the ignition key is turned off and removed. I suspect the ignition switch is faulty. I know it is on the steering column bolted to the lock cylinder, but I need to know any tricks to removing it and I need to know which wire sends the signal to the starter so i can test it. I assume the signal wire to the starter should have no power when the key is not in the 'cranking' position?

Hello. I am trying to replace an ignition switch actuator(?) on a 96 Town Car with tilt wheel. The car starts and runs, but when the key is returned to the off position, the car continues to run with the key just sort of floating from the run to the off position. Lock and tumbler are fine, as is the ignition switch. Something between the lock and tumbler and the ignition switch is broken. I need to know how to get to the broken piece.
