Does anyone know if this refers also to 2008 found it in another post on a 2001 super duty. Just trying to find out how to change my ignition switch. Kind regards Mike C
Remove lower dash panel to access fuse box.
In my truck 01, 7.3 CC Lariat, it was fuse #19. Some report fuse #45. Check fuse to see if blown.
With #2 phillips, remove three column cover screws from the bottom of the column to remove the plastic covers.
With top/bottom covers loose, move bottom cover to the side to view small stainless detent locking ball on the bottom of the ignition housing.
Note: When removing ignition, be careful of the tiny contact and wire for the key chime. It's located on the bottom of the ignition housing. It's a small black keyed insulator, with contact tab.
Put the key in the ignition. Press the stainless detent ball with the awl (or #1 phillips). While depressed, turn the key forward to the 'on' position and slide ignition out of the column. This is where you need to be gentle- be careful of the key chime contact (and again when re-installing).
