    did 1977 blazers have an accessory position on the switch? since my key won't twist back into what should be the acc. position did somebody change the ignition switch, or the key cylinder? or is this just a simple fact that maybe the tumblers in the cylinder have gotten sloppy and won't let the key turn backwards anymore? FYI I can turn the switch all the way to the start position without using a key.
    PS. I hope that none of you ever have to go through adjusting or replacing your neutral position sensors, I have mine off and can't seem to figure out how to get it lined up right... what a bi***

    I dont know about 77, but my old 80 had an accessery position. I imagine that is going to be an issue with your key. Goodluck and good morning. HAVE A NICE DAY!!!

    I'm starting to have troubles with my 91's ignition switch going into the ACC position. My troubles are the key and tumbler. You can pick the set up from Auto Zone for about $15.

    I have trouble turning the key to the accessory position in my '89, but I can still get it there after a few attempts. Sounds like a common problem. It's on my fix-it list.

    Mud, yes your K5 would have an accessory position. Don't know about the changing of the ignition thing, but if your key is really trashed that could make your key not work backing into that position. (or the ignition might be worn out) If the key is too worn to duplicate you can get a new one made with a code. Sorry, but I can't remember where to find the code, but once you get it you can go to a dealer. Good luck!

    You can't beat going Topless!

    My 88 has some trouble going in but after a few attempts it will. I have to kind of push the key in towards the column til it catches and slips back. Need to take a look at it.

    Have you driven OVER a Ford lately?

    Try playing with the steering wheel while going from off (locked) position to acc.

    Also try going fast from the on position all the way to the acc position.

    That works for me.
