2000 Ford Contour Repair Question
How to change Ignition Switch
I can turn the key back manually so the key is not stuck in the ignition cylinder. i replaced the ignition cylinder and the issuer persisted so the only thing that i can think of is that dern ignition switch.
Any thoughts or instructions to get to the switch would be mighty helpful.
its mounted on the lower steering column on top.
a linkage rod goes from the key to the ing. switch.u can unbolt it then remove it.then u can use a screwdriver to test it. it may not be your problem it maybe in the column.
thanks for the answers. found it just behind the steering wheel after taking off the plastic panels around the steering column. 2 screws, and an electrical clip later it was done very quickly.
Found the problem too, it was indeed the ignition switch, the piece in the middle where the linkage rod goes into to turn it was broken...stupid plastic, heh.
