I have looked on forums for ages and only just had a "BING" ford forums haha..
Well i picked up a ford EL 98 4L straight 6 Auto fairly cheap to do up as my first car..
But. put the key in the barrel and it will only turn the the first position no further. (odd or common??)
the interior light works the head lights work fine can change gears, the smart lock light is flashing 1/1/1 (I believe armed?)
I have tested the batter and also tried another brand new one of a mates car, and also have left the key in the ignition in the on position for a hour (Apparently reprograms the key)
So im stumped, is this a smart lock issue? or the actual barrel thats dead?
Thanks for any help given i really wan't get this car going.
Computer tek here trying to explain whats wrong with a car here so thanks for understanding.
I don't think it is the ignition lock. To check, turn to the on position, press the retainer and pull the ignition lock out. Turn it in all positions in your hand. If that works, the problem should be in the column
