Hello, the ignition switch has the spring built into it, if you manually push on the ignition switch to the crank position it should bounce back. The most common issue with the key system not working on these trucks is a broken actuator rod from the key tumbler on the column to the ignition switch. The ignition switch connectors melt and switches can separate when turning the key to the on position when it is bolted to the column and the switch is adjustable on the column.
