Ignition key lock

On my 96 Bronco there's every now and then only a click when I turn the ignition key. Wiggling on the keylock usually helps and the engine starts. So I replaced the keylock but no dice. Same problem. Now my wife tells me that wiggling with the shift lever helps. What do I have to replace now?

Thanks,

Ed

Re: Ignition key lock

Check the adjustment on the ignition switch its on top of the collum down twords the bottom. try moving it up (twords the wheel) just a bit If that doesn't work most likely its the cam inside the collum bad(expecialy if it is tilt they are real bad about this) search for my post on this. I fixed mine and posted a step by step walkthrough on this.

Re: Ignition key lock

The '76 tilt column is ENTIRELY different from the '96, so that writeup won't help.

There's no adjustment on the ignition switch, so it has to be the MLPS on the side of the transmission. The first pic is from a car, but yours looks the same. You can try to realign it, but I expect you'll end up replacing it. Click these thumbnails to enlarge.

Re: Ignition key lock

OK The '91-older tilt column is totally different from the '92-up. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Ignition key lock

Okay, I'll check the MLPS alignment.
