Did this video help you?

Guy Monroe: that was awesome but my 1995 E-150 econoline key switch turns without a key and battery drains, is replacement going to fix this or is there other issues´╗┐

Dwayne Jones: How do you replace when you have lost the key and can't turn the key to the on position?

1A Auto Parts: Thank shouldn't cause a drain on the battery in your truck.

jwmill5: Awesome! Thank you! A dealership actually told me that the lock cylinder had to be put together and with labor/parts it would be 300.00. Lock Smart Ignition Key Lock Cylinder from a local auto parts store, already built, cost me 25.00. With me watching your video on my iphone, I was able to replace it within 5mins. Thanks again!

CherryHeroin: Didn't really answer that last guy's question...and I have the same problem. I lost my keys down a sewer drain (don't ask) and its already a replacement cylinder so I can't just get the dealer to cut me a new key.. How would I get the pin pushed in if I can't turn to the on position.. Am I screwed into trying to break it or is there a "gentle" way?

Homelesskateboards: Can my battery drain from a bad ignition cylinder

1A Auto Parts: we currently do not have an auto repair video for that particular vehicle.

Anthony Taylor: Hey guys there is a Check Engine Light but I was told its for the DPS sensor (like an erg sensor) But when I replaced the fender mounted starter solinoid the light went off and then 3 days later turned back on so I am sceptical. I did all the connections I just want to know if it is the ignition switch and how to get to it because I cannot find a video to help me I dont like to break things I like to do it right the 1st time around and leave it at that. Thanks for the help.

1A Auto Parts: HI Anthony, You may want to pull the code again (to make sure it isn't a new one) and runnit in Google, that should help to point you in a direction as to what the issue may be. Hope this helps you out 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

RANTING WILL: ford explorer replacing a lock cylinder with out the key is it doable? also is a 97 model

lamania32: I have 98 F150 and 2000 expedition after removing the lower steering column cover remove the single wire connected to the cylinderlock housing, it has a black plastic connector firmly pop it out then locate the the steel ball deep in a hole at the end of the cylinderlock housing while turning the key push the ball and pull the cylinder. thats all takes about 5-10 min

Shannon Denetsosie: my key was stolen and i was wondering if this would work in the same way without the key.

1A Auto Parts: HI Anthony, If there happens to be a check engine light on you may want to pull the code to see what it's pointing to. If not you may want to check the wires on the starter and also clean up the battery terminals with a wire brush if you haven't tried this yet. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

1A Auto Parts: The Explorer may be different.

1A Auto Parts: check the interior light, pull the bulb to see if the test light goes out, try the under the hood light, pull that bulb to see if the ligh goes out. You will kind of have to work you way around the electrical system to see what's causing the drain on the battery. I have this happen on a Chevy S10 that I own and on my truck the hood light in the engine compartment was draining the batter, it was on it's own circuit so pulling the fuses didn't narrow it down for me. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto

Fonzaaay305: @1aauto how would you do a 2002 mitsubishi eclipse gt?

1A Auto Parts: Thank you for visiting our auto repair channel on YouTube. Have a great day! 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

Homelesskateboards: Can your battery drain from a bad ignition cylinder?

1A Auto Parts: You may be able to have a lock smith take a look at it to see if they can make a key for you.

Mike Trahan: Great video ..Just replaced mine on my 02 F-250 in under five minutes. Thanks

Keith Brown Jr: would this work on the ford explorer models of the same years?

1A Auto Parts: The Explorer ignition may be different. We carry them on our website 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

Robert Mitchum: Thanks for the quick and easy video. I knew there was a trick to the Ford ignition lock cylinder, but the '98 is a bit different from my old '79. Cleaned out 15 years of gunk, and now it works just as well ad it did when it was new. I had to use a 1/8 inch dia. rod to push up the pin, anything thicker did not fit in the hole. .... Great vid, short and to the point. .... Thanks Again.

1A Auto Parts: You would need the key to turn the ignition. A locksmith may be able to make a new key for you. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

kiss off: hey that was great... except it wasn't real clear. showing a close up of the spot you push would be helpful. how wide a tool do you need? does the key need to be in the off or on position?

TheDivebri69: I need to ask a question. My son was using my old '96 F150 and the cylinder BROKE OFF in the column. The last little bit of the cylinder is still in the column........ Any suggestions on getting it out? Thanks, divebri69

pdotopb: 96 E150 van REPAIRED! THANKS

Germaine Brady: Would this be the same thing for a 2000 Ford Explorer?

1A Auto Parts: @d12pray You would need to find a way to get it to turn forwards. Sometimes if you wiggle the key in the ignition you can get it to turn.

Anthony Taylor: @1aauto: My 99 F250 Super Duty 5.4 V8 has a thing with not starting all the time.It starts sometimes and other times it doesnt. I have replaced the fender mounted starter solinoid and checked all of the connections and they are good now. It is still doing this about every 10th time i start it ill have to go out to the fender mounted solinoid and manualy start it with a screw driving and it is a pain in my rear. Is the ignition switch to blame or is it something else?

1A Auto Parts: With electrical issues anything is possible. To test a battery drain remove the negative cable off of the negative post on the battery (leave the positive hooked up). connect a test light bettween the negative battery cable and the negative battery post, if the light lights up with the truck off there's a draw. Try pulling the fuses one by one to see if the light goes out, if it does that's the circuit that the draw is coming from. If it doesn't go out after pulling all of the fuses,cont.....

1A Auto Parts: If you lost the key and need to replace the ignition because of it, a locksmith may be able to make a new key for you.

1A Auto Parts: I'm not sure how much is in there, but if you can turn it forward to release it from the column, you should be able to follow this video. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

1A Auto Parts: @mephistophiles55 The key should be in the on position, and you just need something small enough to stick in the hole to push the pin up to release the ignition cylinder.
