Product Description

Many 1979-93 Ford Mustang fox bodies have experienced problems with their factory ignition switches. The problem centers on those few crimps that hold the two halves together. With age and cycling of the switch, the metal crimps can weaken or even break, causing the switch halves to separate. This separation can cause any number of problems, from inoperative air conditioning to a car that won’t start at all. Worst case, is that the ignition switch can even cause a fire.

Make sure your ignition switch is in perfect working order with this factory style replacement from Latemodel Restoration Supply! Fits 5.0L and 2.3L models. Requires (2) ignition switch screws (Not included).

    Fox Body Mustangs are notorious for faulty ignition switches. The factory ignition/starter switch is held together by a few crimps. Over the last 2+ decades, these crimps have become brittle and tend to break. When these crimps break, the ignition switch separates into two halves. Once this happens you get all kind... more

    $15 bucks for a little piece of mind that a dash fire won't happen? I'll take it! Had this swapped in in under 30 minutes from start to finish, definitely worth it!

    5 Stars   Gremlins are gone!
    By on 7/17/2014
    Image uploaded by Luther H. My '88 LX convertible has had some electrical gremlins since I bought her in 1999. They are gone now! I replaced the ignition lock and ignition switch. Low and behold, everything works! The top goes up and down, the turn signals flash again, I can use the accessory position and listen to some tunes or NPR when I am waxing her up, and the car starts and stays running ever, damn, time! Thx Latemodel Restoration.

    5 Stars   ignition switch
    By on 11/7/2014
    Switch works as expected, old one was loose from the metal to plastic.I would add on my 1990 I needed the T27 torx tamper proof bit.Not worth the attempt with a vise grip or grinding. Switch looks identical to the upgraded OEM original, as mine was the recalled one that lasted 24 or so years and some of the wires you could see that they got hot at one time (yellow wires).For the price I would at least buy one to have on hand but Changing it is only a 30 minute job.

    I had trouble with my fuel pump electrical system, an found that the ignition switch is part of circuit, so I decided to replace, an there is a factory recall that was not done, it installed easily, an liked detailed instruction of telling you which position your ignition cylinder to be before install.

    4 Stars   Good fit, easy install, works well
    By on 8/1/2014
    Looks pretty much identical to the stock unit. A good, quick, easy and inexpensive fix if you are having ignition switch issues. Noticed that the electronics in the car are getting better power now (windows go up and down faster, top pump spins faster etc) which is probably because of better contacts.

    Would be better if the design was changed so it won't break again!

    5 Stars   New is always better than old
    By on 12/31/2014
    My old ignition switch was in great shape. But my car has spent the first 2/3 of its life in a garage. (1989 LX w/120K miles.) So maybe that made a difference. But once I found out that a defective ignition switch could cause a fire I made a point of changing out this part. Nothing gets my attention like the possibility of my car catching on fire.
