Starting without a key

Just a few days ago i removed my keys and turned off my car and I was sitting in the car and I had forgot that the keys werent in the ignition and turned the ignition a little bit and noticed it turned alittle, then I tried turning it more and my car turned on without the keys in the ignition. How can I fix it so it only turns on with the keys in the ignition, i dont have an alarm yet and it would be easy for someone to steal my car

Older ignition switches could be done that way. If you pull the key's out without the switch being in the lock position, you didn't need the keys to start it. If your saying it was in the lock pos when you took them out, then the ignition needs replaced.

Had that exact problem on my 94' f150. Didn't bother me, cause I could run out in the winter time, start it, take the keys and lock the door and run back inside. Lol actually kinda liked it. But, scotty is right. It needs to be replaced.

Its easy to break into any car. Only solution is to not park in sketch places and even then.

My truck does that exact same thing, I loved warming it up in the morning during winter. I actually want to be able to do that in the Mustang.
