F-100 Ignition Switches
F-100 Ignition Switches
Though the iconic American-made pickup ended production for good in the early 1980s, Ford F-100s are still relevant in the present day and are popular restoration projects for classic truck lovers. Though restoration projects can bring Ford fans of all generations together, certain tasks, such as rebuilding the ignition system, can be taxing. Restoring an outdated F-100 ignition system entails replacing your impaired F-100 spark plugs, ensuring all of the wiring parts are in order, and making a host of changes inside your engine compartment.
Revamping your factory ignition system is a strenuous process, and sometimes, determining a good starting point can be the most challenging aspect. Additionally, it is best to ensure that you give the entire ignition system the attention that it needs and not just the components that are located inside the engine compartment. By replacing your impaired F-100 ignition switch, however, you will lay a solid foundation and be able to continue with all of the work that needs to be done under the hood!
Positioned squarely on the steering column, your Ford F100 ignition switch works in conjunction with your F100 ignition lock cylinder to start the vehicle once you turn the key. F100 ignition switches are relatively simple accessories in theory, but they are arguably the most important electronic component in your entire vehicle. In addition to their obvious function of starting the vehicle, Ford F100 ignition switches have several positions that power a variety of systems, depending on how far you turn the key in the ignition.
If you simply place the key in the ignition, your F100 ignition switch will trigger the battery and allow you to operate certain electronic accessories, such as the radio. If you turn the key even further, your Ford F-100 ignition switch will enable the HVAC system to operate, which will allow you to enjoy a burst of cool or warm air while you wait inside your cabin. However, Ford F100 ignition switches are obviously best known for triggering the starter and solenoid in order to begin the process of starting your vehicle.
Once you are finished running your engine, the F100 ignition switch has an “off” position, where everything is completely off, and you can remove the key. If it has been awhile since you gave the ignition system some TLC, you will feel the effects every time you attempt to start your vehicle. If starting your vehicle is not as easy as it once was, it would be a good idea to shop around for a new F-100 ignition switch or a replacement F100 ignition lock cylinder.
