This happened to me in my f150...when you turn the key a plastic slide piece goes up n down for on/off...the rod n spring in column break sometimes causing it not so spring back or get stuck...either column has to be taken apart and fixed or the much easier and cheaper way of go to junk yard and get a new steering column...

The solenoid on my starter got stuck and caused this to happen on mine.. Replaced the ignition cylinder and got a powermaster starter and all was good.. I was worried i had to take apart my column but that wasnt the case for my issue.

My starter fried on me when it got stuck

It wasn't hard to take out but very time consuming. and when I put it back together idk if the spring before the clock spring has to be pressed in or not

I'm not completely sure but I think the spring will press from just ignition lock...the spring and shaft is exposed towards the bottom of column so try holding there with a screw driver when installing ignition lock...

it's the spring on the shaft right behind the clock spring there is a snap ring and a plastic piece that holds the spring in
