1995 Fsuperduty ignition problems

Just wanted to know if anyone had an issue with the key was in the igniton and I was going down the road with no winshield wipers, all the warning light lit up, could not tell what speed i was going. I tried to shut it off and it keeps running with the key pull out or in off position. I replaced the ignition cylinder (not OEM) and still does not work. I have to let the clutch out to shut off and when I do the fan and radio keep working and i have to disconnect the battery. HELP

Re: 1995 Fsuperduty ignition problems

Key cylinder has almost nothing to do with most ignition issues. Replace or adjust the switch.

When i turned the key on, when this first started. Something inside thr key cylinder went loose. I hope its the key switch, but something tells me it might be the actuator. Let me anyone. Thanks for the info.

About 20 mins for the switch, not to be confused with the cylinder that the pros on YouTube call a switch. Located under the steering column behind the lower section of the dash. 1aauto has a pretty good video you can watch and the part is less than $25

Re: 1995 Fsuperduty ignition problems

nope. most likely the actuator in the upper part of the column.
it connects the key cylinder to the rod that runs down to the switch.
