Customer Question

I have a 1995 Lincoln Mark VIII ignition problem. When I turn the key it doesn't spring back to turn off. I had to take the switch out to start and stop the engine. When I turn the key it pushes but won't return. Could you please help?

If I'm understanding you correctly, it sounds like the key switch is defective or your ignition switch has come apart inside which is common on those.
