There is a small hole right under your ignition in the steering column housing. You can feel it it's right in line with the center of your key. There's a little pin that comes out of your ignition lock assy that snaps down into the hole in the housing preventing the lock assy from sliding back out. You need to turn the ignition to the on position and push up into the hole with a pick or a finishing nail or a paper clip or a pin (you get the idea) then the ignition should wiggle out. Sometime the end of this assembly is broken off and all you have to fish it out and buy a new ignition. sometimes the pushrod has come unhooked from the bottom end of the steering column. I had the latter happen and I could start it if I held the key on start and pushed the tilt all the way up. If the key just turns freely it's probably the tab. Good luck. y'huck y'huck

How do you replace the ignition switch on a 1991 Ford F-150 pickup?

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.
