low fuel presure. try priming it by turning ignition on and off several times.

The ignition switch is immediately behind and attached to the ignition lock cylinder. The ignition lock cylinder is where you place the key to start your vehicle. If you are haveing problems with your vehicle not starting and or turning the key, more than likely you need to replace the ignition lock cylinder. It is common for these to go bad in GM vehicles.

Yes , the socket is live so you can use the cigarette lighter without starting the Explorer or turning the ignition key to the accessory position

No it doesn't. The acc wire on your stereo is for accessory from your ignition switch. That's so you can turn your car key back and run your stereo without turning on the engine.

if clicking is in turns than a front axle needs replaced. if turning right it is your left axle-- turning left it is your right axle!! the clicking is the cv joint in axle.

try turning the ignition key to on (don't start) and depressing the gas pedal 3 times within 5 seconds.

either the accessory wire is unhooked or theirs a blown fuse!

Insert the key, turn backwards to the accessory position. Insert a paper clip into the hole in the switch and push while turning the key counterclockwise. The cylinder will come out.

So it would seem. If the ignition is in the column it may also be jammed by the steering wheel lock. Try turning the steering wheel and holding it while turning the ignition key.

if you have been having intermittent power-accessory or dash light failure, and/or the car won't stay started (no idle), then yes, it can be your ignition switch module. when car won't idle, try turning and holding the key halfway between Start and On; if it then idles normally, it is definitely your ignition switch module. easy to replace.

By turning the ignition key...

More detail is needed here, does it make a clicking noise, is there any feeling at all when turning key, do other electrical items work, etc.

With a key, by turning on ignition

Turning the steering wheel left to right rapidly while turning the key in the ignition should free up the ignition switch. If this does not rectify the problem it could be with the lever lockout or the key itself.
