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
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.

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, 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
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?
