First, disconnect the 'positive' battery cable. Insert key. Rotate the switch to on position. Leave key in switch. Examine the face of the switch. You will see a small hole, about the size of a paper clip. Insert paper clip into hole. Rotate key to 'full' forward position as if starting. Pull on the key. Your switch should be easily removed. I did this on my 1992 Aerostar and it worked fine. Also, you might do a Google search. That is where I got my information.
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.Ê

Your key switch contact inside the ignition switch cylinder may be stuck closed. You may need to replace the switch or the ignition key cylinder. On a Ford and GM, the contact is replaceable without the ignition switch, but requires the steering wheel removed to replace it. Not sure what is required for the Lebaron, but it is not a major task to do for a mechanic.
The ignition switch is located on the bottom of the steering column. Take out the 4-6 screws that hold the bottom piece and you will see the switch should be about 3-4 inches long held in place by 2 screws. take black plug off then replace switch plug back in and there you go.

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 ignition switch is on the lower part of your steering column. Not very easy to get to but you can lower the steering column to get a better look at it. there should be 2 switches down there that have bars running to them. one is the headlight brights switch, you should be able to click the brights and see what switch you need to replace. there are 2 screws that hold the brights switch in place. you need to remove that switch first, then there are 2 more for the ignition switch. After that you just turn the switch on the bar to get it to remove. hope this helps, its not a hard job to do just hard to get to. Good luck :)
the ignition timing does not get replaced on 87 dodge.
A friend had the same problem with his 87 Corvette . His was the chip in the ignition key . Had to replace ignition switch and key , about 40 dollars for the parts .
rightside bottom of steering column
The ignition switch is defective.
found this, might be the same, Merry Christmas, anyways! :) For a 1988 Mercury Marquis remove bottom shroud from steering column (5 Philips head screws). There is a wire running from the ignition switch to the left side of the steering column; detach it from the coupler (This can be done without a tool). Turn key to ON position until the panel lights come on. There is a small pin near the bottom of the key lock; push it in and pull the ignition switch out (don't panic if the wire seems to be stuck; it will come out). To replace, turn new ignition switch to same position. Push pin on the ignition switch in while sliding it back into the steering column. Reconnect wire and then replace shroud.

It is located on the left side of the steering column. You will have to remove panels underneath the dash- as well as some ductwork to gain access.
