ignition turns a weird little piece that pushes on the ignition rod that connects to the ignition switch that is on top of the steering column under the dash.its a weird little piece of white metal or aluminum that looks like a half moon with a straight piece sticking off it. i just had to replace it on my truck, you gotta get it from ford i'll see if i can find the part # for you.you have to take off the steering wheel then take apart the column .then find something to fit the little threaded holes on the side of the column so you can get the rest of it out so you can change that little piece of metal.if you dont have much patience with little crap spend a hundred bux and get it done at a shop.i coulda burned my truck 5 times while i was trying to get it done

Always broke
