96 Taurus....when turning key to start position it sometimes sticks in that start position after it starts. Sometimes when turning car off I realize the key never completely came back all the way to the "on" position. Any suggestions for getting keys to move more freely from "start" to "on"?

Ignition lock problem

I had the same type problem in my "01 Sable. The dealer replaced the lock mechanism (reused the same key cylinder) and the problem disappeared.

lock cyl

Ford seems to have issues with the lock cyl.

They replaced one on 96 lin, twice on '02 lin. The '96 would not go to Acc. the '02 would not release the key.

Seems like a small job at the dealer. All fixed while I waited. It seemed like a routine for them.
