I have a 91 ford bronco and the ignition cylinder is locked up tight.Put in the key and I get chime but can't turn it to start the truck.So, I bought a new cylinder to put in but in the locked position I cant change it.Do I need to drill out the pin which holds the cylinder in?Is there a way to get the cylinder to unlock?Please help!
your better off drilling out the cylinder and tumblers (keyway) I believe the pin your refering to is hardened steel. The column is made of aluminum and Which if drilled will go easy and then the column will be junk. I did one once with a locksmith in an 84 it took us about an hour. you have to have the key turned foward to get the pin to retract to remove the cylinder.
