1990 F150 steering column problem
Good day and hello to the group.
I have a 1990 Ford F150 Lariat with a 302 (5.0) liter engine with automatic transmission. It does not have tilt steering.
After doing some brake work on it, I wanted to test drive the unit to check for brake performance. When I turned the ignition key, the starter engaged for less than a second and then stopped.
Now the ignition key seems to turn freely without engaging the starter and the shift lever on the column will not come out of park.
The daytime running lights still come on, blinkers and everything else seems to work.
I have removed the steering wheel and the problem seems to be beneath what is just under the wheel. I think the problem is the actuator rod or it's assembly further down the column. I've read about the actuator rod in other posts and forums.
Can someone send a link to a diagram and/or change out procedures. I probably could get a new column from the wrecker- would that be a better idea?
Thanks for any posts and help. Have a great day.
