What year and model Ford are you working on?
It sounds like the key in warning chime tab is not staying in place on the steering column where the key lock cylinder inserts. It grounds when the key is inserted and sounds the warning chime.
See the picture below. The tab clips into the housing with the key cylinder removed.
Your very welcome. Make sure it stays in place, because if it fits loose, the plastic tab is broken and the clock spring will have t be replaced.
Again, you are very welcome. Thank you.
