    Ignition problem please please help !!!!!

    Went to start my 1.7td mk 4 van this after lights turned but no clicks for ignition barrell, took key out and dashboard lights still on?? Pushed the van down the road and bumped off but when i came to stop had to stall it and lights still on?

    What could be wrong? Got a full lock set but barrell will not go in old one came out ok though.

    Any advice I would be very grateful

    It sounds like the barrel broke inside and either there's still some of it stuck inside or the switch at the end isn't in the right postion for the end of the new barrel

    Thanks for you advice how do I change the position of the switich in the end, the barrel goes so far in then seems to not want to go any further?

    I can only think of removing the ignition switch from the other end then slotting the barrel in first. You can then turn the switch with a screwdriver

    Can't remember how the switches come off though
