You need the key. Remove the plastic shroud around the ignition. Insert the key, Turn the ignition to the accessory position. Look about 1 and 1/2 inches down the top of the ignition and you will see a square hole. Use something to depress the retainer and pull the ignition out. Put the new ignition in the accessory position and insert where the old one was. If you do not have a key the ignition cylinder will have to be drilled. If you are not sure how to do this. DON'T DO IT!!! Call a locksmith. Also I read in another post similar to this one and in the answer someone wrote, use a puller and pull the ignition. Do not do this. The metal surrounding the ignition cylinder in this car is a very soft pot metal and can be damaged, therefore making matters worse, by not allowing your new ignition to stay in or not go in at all. I've been a locksmith for 17 years and service anything from file cabinets to high security safes and everything in between, so when I say do not attempt unless you know what you are doing, it means presicely that. Good Luck!!!!
Replace the ignition. That would involve tearing down the column a little bit. A very common thing seen by a locksmith.
the ignition switch tumbler on these models seem to grenade from the inside you would have to replace the tumbler
If you pick up a Haynes or Chilton manual for the car, it will show you how to remove and replace the ignition switch. You might be able to find out why it won't turn without having to replace it. Another option would be to call a locksmith.
In a 83 Oldsmobile you remove the dist cap, unplug and unscrew the module and install a new module. It would be helpful to know if this is your lawnmower or boat engine.
It would need to be drilled. Best to just call a locksmith.
I've had the same issue, It's a bad ignition switch, replace the ignition switch and you should be good to go. P.S. the ignition switch is located under the steering column, it's held in by 2 screws, but it can be a hassle to remove.
You would have to disconnect the wires from the stock ignition, so you would have to tear it out unless you could find a way to do it without it.
how much would it cost to replace a power steering pump on a Volks wagon golf
You would be on the Aries-Taurus cusp.
It's really easy the switch is in the steering colume.
Remove the dog-house, drill out the rivets holding the original ignition coil, replace coil using bolts or new rivets. Before changing I would test it, not a common failed part. Though the distributor gear is a very common wear item on these vans, I would check that. Also might be cheaper to replace the distributor instead of just the gear.
I am very sorry. I was under the impression that if I go to the address bar and ask a question. The answer would be right forecoming. I only asked how to replace the heater core on a 2000 ford taurus. And received only run-arounds.
I would replace the ignition module that's under the distributor cap.
I would replace the ignition control module that's in the distributor.
I just had this problem last night and I ended up having to take it to the dealership because the key just would not move at all. They had to replace the ignition in my car which ran about $300.

My experience with Taurus ignition systems tells me that you should test your wires for resistance. If they check out, I would look next at the fuel injectors. If they are fine then you are looking at the ECM/ignition controller as the possible culprit. That is my list in order of expense and difficulty. I hope that helps.
The ignition switch is bad. Replace it.
The labor cost to replace a rack and pinion steering on a 97 Taurus should run between $500 and $750. The actual cost varies based on the location in which it is repaired in and the repair shop.
Replace ignition module (under the distributor cap)
I would have the ignition itself replaced. These go out all the time and will leave you stranded. Get a new ignition keyed to your current key and you won't have to do programming. A locksmith can do this for you. Do it soon though before it stops turning.
