Several possibilities here
Try to tilt, see if the pivot is binding your linkage headed toward the switch
Your actual ignition switch may have come loose or is broken (not sliding like it should)
Imma Jeep CJ kinda guy.....I like Fords also!........I'll mess with anything to help someone!
Just seeing your switch...it looks very much like a Ford Switch, I'm sure they are similar!.....and probably function similar
I have pics of a '88 Ford F-100 I took to assist others w/ Jeeps and Fords..........Best I can do!
The switch on ours is located just on the other side of the dash, on top of the column
On "My Favorites" I can change 'em out, without lowering the column....it's tight, but I am accustomed to "feeling" my way thru the process....I lowered this on to take my homemade pics
To save me from forever huntin' and peckin, please view this post...Yeah, Yeah, Yeah it's a Ford!.....Can't help it you got confused and didn't wind up at the Jeep dealer for a new Wrangler. lol!
Pay special attention to the rod and the "L" shaped end, it's hidden position when sighting down the column, when completely installed
Observe the "slider" in the switch itself....it should slide free and be "springy" in the start position
Let me know if this,at minimum, aids in repairing your rig!
