Part arrived on time
March 4, 2017
Part fits my auto (is identical dimensions & electric functions) and installed as video instructed. My problem with low voltage to the fuel pump was cured. (Original equipment part was 17 years old)
Solved the problem
August 12, 2017
We were having sporadic starting problems and this solved the problem. It arrived on schedule and works great.
February 9, 2020
I bought this ignition switch for my early 99 7.3L Stroker. I had installed a Dorman, from the local auto parts store as a filler until this one finally arrived. The Dorman shorted out shortly after replacing the previous one. I don't believe it was any manufacturer defect, the previous owner of my vehicle did quite a number on the wiring, or should I say he left a bird's nest!. Long story short, we ran out of answers so I decided to remove everything the previous owner had installed including a Viper alarm and pod gauges. Installed the OEM switch... voila! It cranked over and ran...still running. Very happy with purchase, so far!
Good quality

Ignition switch

I needed a ignition switch for my 96 f150 and this one is a perfect match to the OE ignition switch. Simple to change out and if your not sure you can watch the 1a auto video on YouTube.
