'98 Taurus ignition wont turn


#1

Hello everyone, as stated I have a '98 taurus and whenever I try to start it, the key gets locked in the ignition. I can turn the key to just before starting with the car in neutral and it will start, but not with it in park. Also the turning signals are intermitten at best. Brake lights and tail lights work fine. What is my problem?



Thanks.

I am going to guess that it is a worn ignition switch.  Do you have a lot of keys and "stuff" on your key ring?  That extra weight tends to wear out the lock. 

You could try cleaning the lock with a zero residue cleaner and then use a real lock lube, usually graphite based.
