The ignition switch is located on the bottom of the steering column on the top of the steering shaft the side closest to the dash board. First you have to disconnect the 4 bolts holding the support plate that holds the steering column. Then pull the steering column down as far as it will go. Then you disconnect the 4 screws holding the ignition switch. Take off the old one and replace it with the new one. The new ignition switch will have grooves in it so that you can adjust it. You want to push it as close to the steering wheel as you can get it then tighten down the screws. reassemble the steering column and the start it and drive away!!

I had this problem in my 2004 focus. You have to get a dealership to replace the ignition switch altogether.

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

There is a lock ring on the inside of the dash where the switch connects. You need to remove this lock ring to remove the switch from the dash.

Remove the airbag and steering wheel, remove the torx screws from the steering housing and remove the housing, remove the screws from the signal and wiper switch, and remove the screws above the ignition switch and remove the switch. Replace the switch and replace everything in reverse.รŠ

Not sure what you mean by change the ignition on a diesel, diesel engines don't have spark plugs, spark plus wires, coil, etc.... If you are asking about the ignition switch, it is mounted on top of the steering column on most pre 2000, after that they are located in the steering column.
