1990 F150 Ignition/Shifter Problem - Newbie
I have a 1990 F150 pickup.
One day the truck just did not start from inside the truck. If I turned the key to the start position and jump the solenoid, the truck starts right away.
When I turn the key to the start position, there does not seem to be any tension on the key and it does not spring back.
I changed the key cylinder; no change so I put the old one back in.
I bought an ignition switch; while I was messing around trying to find out how the heck I can get at the nuts securing the switch I realized that the shifter would not move out of the park position. The steering wheel unlocks and normally the shifter could move but it is stuck.
Before I mess any more with the actual electric switch portion on the top of the steering column, I want to find out why the shifter is not moving. Maybe it is not the switch.
