Ignition locks on Ford Ranger problems
I bought a used 1999 Ford Ranger a few years ago. We think someone tried to hotwire the truck or something because the letters are wrong....instead of being on the R when you go in reverse, it's on the next letter. No problems until about a week ago when the ignition wouldn't unlock when you tried to start it. My husband figured out that by moving the gearshift back & forth while inserting the key, would unlock the ignition. Now, that's not even working so we want to take it to a mechanic but would like an idea of what to tell him, approximate cost this would take, etc.
