Locked Ignition tumbler

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, last evening I started my 88 and the key switch locked into place in the run position. I tried tapping on it and the column to no avail. Is this easily fixed by replacing the ignition switch or is there something else I should check for?


Thanks for any help as always!

Does it come back partway or is it just jammed in the run position? On my automatic it would sometimes let me turn it back far enough to shut it off but not far enough to pull the key out, because the shifter interlock wasn’t disengaging. Gently pushing the shifter forwards past where it grabbed park was enough to get the interlock to do it’s thing, and there was a bit of audible feedback when it released. The fix was adjusting the shift cable so the trans positions better matched up with the shifter positions.
