Help! Engine wonít turn off

Iím on my way to Moab in e350 6.0. Stopped for lunch 100 miles out of Ogden with a full tank for lunch. Engine turned off but ignition did not. I heard electric vacuum pump running and went to turn off ignition and on. Engine started and would not turn off. Key comes out. Starter wonít engage. Good news itís running and Iíve eaten. Has anyone had this happen and do I need a locksmith or dealer?

Is it still running? Or were you able to get it to shut off?

Sounds like ignition has a broken return spring, or maybe the keyway stripped out.. It’s not too hard to change the entire ignition.. You can also remove the ignition cylinder and try to rotate the ignition internals with a flathead screwdriver. Basically, turn the key to ON, find the hole in the bottom of the column shroud, and stick something skinny in the hole like a long #1 Philips screwdriver. Or a mechanic’s pick. Push hard and that should release the cylinder allowing you to pull it out. This is step one for the ignition replacement as well, except to replace the ignition the shroud needs to come all the way off.

Iím at the Ford dealer and I remove the ignition. I also removed the switch down below on the column. The linkage in the ignition cylinder are working fine. If I move the rod on the ignition switch down below in any positions it doesnít turn the rig off, nor does it change anything. On top of that my turbo has begin to stick, so Iíve lost power.

That’s not good. With the ignition functioning, and losing an injector, I’m suspecting a melted wire harness now…. Fingers crossed it’s those 2 faults are just coincidental though!

Update. Dealer says no compression on cylinder 8, no blow by and valve train looks fine from above. They also donít think itís the bottom end. What gives. I need to get it home from SLC. Motor built to the hilt by Orange County

Can anyone recommend a custom shop to swap godzilla motor with 10speed into my van? Need a capable custom builder.

Tough day we all feel your pain! Maybe you could coax MG to do it? He is close to you and there is nobody more qualified/capable. https://expovans.com/about-us/
