I replaced the ignition switch - the engine
turned over but it won't start
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Ford. The Ford Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: this is a 98 ford explorer. The original ignition lock broke (metal fatigue) and has been replaced. Lights come on as normal - the engine turns over but doesn't start. Does the key need to be programmed?
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: As I said - I replaced the original ignition which was worn out
JA: Is there anything else the Ford Mechanic should be aware of about your Ford?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
