The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.

NOTE

On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible.

On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.

The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company.

To replace the switch:

  • Remove the ignition switch wiring harness.
  • Unbolt it from its position.
  • Bolt the new switch into position.
  • Attach the witing harness.

The actual problem is the starter continues to turn after key is turned off and pulled out of ignition.

Remove the retaining nut from the ignition switch. Pull the switch out and remove the wiring harness. Reverse the process to install the new ignition switch.

Because the heads of the screws holding the ignition to the column snap off on application you will need a chisel,flat head screwdriver and hammer to make a groove in the head of the screw and unscrew normally.

The ignition switch is on the steering column about 12 inches from the floor. Remove the 2 screws that hold it on.
