Ford Transit Ignition

5 posts in this topic

I have a 2008 transit and have recently had problems with the ignition.

On occasions when you turn the key no dash lights come on but the engine will turn over but won't start.

If I wobble the key in the barrel I get the normal lights and she starts.

Anyone had the same problem or know what's wrong as the situation is getting worse

most likely the ignition switch itself.

the switch is a plastic connector and available seperately from the lock assembly

Fairly Straightforward in definition, but in practice it can prove to be more difficult.

I would recommend either a Haynes Manual and a good general knowledge, or a good indie garage!
