Ignition switch replacement
#1
Took my steering column apart today, found my ignition switch with some wires fried. I see there are a couple NOS units on eBay and there are the repro units, found a Scott Drake and can also get from Rockauto. Has anyone bought the repro units and had good luck with them? They are a lot cheaper than the factory Ford unit but I don't want to sacrifice quality either. If someone has used the repro what brand was it? Thanks, Ryan

That's the ground wire that got fried. You might want to determine why it fried...

Let me check your shorts!

I use mostly repop parts on mine - haven't had any serious issues beyond the occasional color mismatch messing with my partial color vision issues.   Cool

I agree with you. I've never drove this car, it had been sitting for a couple years before I bought it. Its never ran since I've owned it.

Did you actually replace the ignition switch? If so, which repop did you use?
