I have been having the exact opposite problem. I have no spark

in the start position, but spark is there when I release the

ignition. I also replaced the ignition switch. This is on a 2000

mustang GT. It will start and run, but only because I release the

key with perfect timing to make it catch. I just pulled my starter

relay and swapped it with one of the same Ford part number (fog

lights in my case) This seemed to work, but it is so intermittent,

it is hard to tell if I really fixed it. Please post if you get

similar results. This is driving me crazy.
