I just joined the forum today, and was hoping I could get some help with this.
I have a '95 F-150 and the truck starts when I turn the key but will not shut off when I remove the key. The engine remains running and all electronics remain on. Just before I found this problem I noticed the key felt loose when turned towards start and off. To turn of the truck I have a switch which toggles the truck to run on propane, which when flipped turns off the fuel pump (truck is no longer set up for propane anymore so the engine turns off). I disconnect the battery to turn off electronics.
I've turn apart most of the steering column assembly, but i cannot identify the problem myself. Everything looks ok to me, but maybe someone who knows this area can identify what may be wrong better than I can. I believe something called an actuator arm is to be the problem, it seems to be missing a pin, but i'm not sure how its supposed to look originally. It would be helpful to have so kind of diagram showing all the parts for the steering column to know what connects the ignition switch to the key, and/or a detailed step by step guide to putting it all back together, so i can get it to a shop.
I was hoping this would be an easy fix, but it doesn't seem to be as easy as i thought it would be.
I've already tried a new key tumbler thing. same issue
I have some photos of the steering column torn apart and what not, which I'll show below.
I apologize if these photos are too large.
They are extremely large for those fine details
Any advice you can provide will be much appreciated
Thanks in advance
