I replaced the ignition switch yesterday evening. It needed it badly. I tried to remove the wiring harness and with barely any force, the entire plastic part came off with the harness. All is working beautifully now. I even have key-back accessory now! I'll post carnage pictures later.

Try posting this in the 6.0 forum.

This is the IDI as in OLD engines... the best suggestion any of us have with a 6.0 is to get rid of it and buy an old IDI

PS's are known for the cam positioning sensor causing issues. Most tow truck drivers carry spare in the glove box.


Gotta love those sensors...

Yet another reason to have an IDI!

(To be fair, though... My mom's 7.3 PS has 365K miles on it with the original cam position sensor, 7 original injectors, and still runs OK)
