I have a Ford F-150, XLT 4-Wheel Drive that has a 302 c.I. Motor having almost 200,000 miles on it.
My question is: When I turn on the key, it doesn't activate the starter. All the lights come on and I can jump the solinode to start it. Everything works but the key switch doesn't activate anything. I just had all new electronics put in the column and switch. Now 30 days later this happens. I understand there is some sort of a aactivation rod that is in the column. I am mechanically inclined, but I have no diagrams of this Sterring column, and can only find diagrams of the switch, nothing else. This is the second time this has happended in the 15 years I've owned the truck. I'm just real uncomfortable taking this to someone to fix. Seems everytime I do it comes back with more problems, or it wasn't fixed right to begin with. Even at the Ford dealer where they replaced the real end, and the problem was an automatic front hub. Figure that one out. Can you give me some kind of direction here?
have the same problem?
