I have been looking all over the internet and cannot find any instructions on how to change the Ignition Switch in my 2000 Ford Contour. I tried to start my car this morning and with teh key in the ignition, it turns through all the positions, but when you turn the key to try and crank it, nothing happens. The lights dont turn off, headlights dont dim, and the key is kinda, for lack of a better word, stuck in the crank position, and doesnt spring back when you let go of the key.
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.
