Re: Ignition switch locked

can you turn the wheel or is that locked as well, meaning the sterring lock has kicked in, so you cant turn the key, try turning the wheel with a bit of effort probably a bit one way or the other and turn the key.

Not 100% sure, my brother has tried and he knows a little about cars, sure he has moved the steering to try to unlock.

R they easy to remove?
Expensive to replace if stuffed?

Re: Ignition switch locked

Well the big problem may be getting a new one in the first place.

But fairly easy to remove and replace, you will need to do a bit of work to remove the sheer bolt(s) and then get new ones to put the new ignition in.

Cost have no idea really, ring ford and ask, or go the wrecker option, but make sure they have a key and it works :0)

You could always have it re-keyed to match your origianl key? Thats's what I did with my previous cars if I had to replace a lock...

Try a bit of silicon spray in the barrel, it may loosen it up for a while,
my Gf's old barina (dont laugh, it used to get near on 600k's on 35L of fuel) used to get stuck on the start position, I sprayed a bit of silcon spray in there, turned off / on a few times and was fine till she sold it.
