ignition cylinder bad?

anybody ever heard of this problem? when I take the key out of the ignition with the door open, truck still beeps like the key is in the ignition. its just annoying thats all. if i play around with it i can get the beeping to stop, its just annoying. called the dealership and asked what can be done to stop that and they told me that my ignition cylinder is bad....250 bucks, seems like a waste of money to me considering its not actually causing any problem. i guess I could maybe take the fuse out for that alert system and maybe then it would never beep...key in or out. any thoughts???

ifish,

yeah, i had this problem on my 05 just after purchase... it would stop if i wiggled it a bit, but it eventually would never stop dinging. mine was under warranty, though, can't give you a price estimate. don't think it would hurt anything...just very annoying. good luck, bud

Exclamation ???

If it is bad it is most likely an issue that by FORDS Standards needs to be replaced comepletly, B-4 you do anything Try to spray some WD-40 in the Slot and maybe the connection issue will make contact. It's worth a try. If not maybe a scrap yard may have one on th CHEAP. Good Luck.

I just fixed it... the dinger is actually hardwired into the fuse box so you can't just pull the wire to it. there is also no fuse that is only for that, you'd lose other functions as well. To stop that dinging, you have to take the bottom panel of the steering column off, its held on by just 3 screws, then you can depress this little tab and as you turn the key the whole ignition cylinder comes out. once the cylinder is out, you can see the sensor inside there and i just pulled it out. i could have also cut the wire but this way it is reversible without splicing if i ever wanted to hook it back up. But for now it never beeps thank goodness. Its pretty easy if anyone wants to remove it on your own trucks.
