Where is my ignition switch located on my 08 Ford Sport Trac?

Asked by Aug 08, 2017 at 01:50 AM about the 2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Adrenalin 4.6L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Could the ignition switch be the cause of an intermittent dead short that
actually boils off the water in my battery and ruins it?
A mechanic buddy suggested replacing the ignition switch so I purchased
one today!  If you agree, can you pls tell me it's location?
Also, before this started, my key would hesitate before returning to RUN
position once in a while but I'm not sure if this is telling me something.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have to repair it before I destroy
another battery's!
Thanks so much for your response!
Phil

Really? Where the key goes.

Thanks but not quite! That's called the key cylinders! The Cylinder drives the switch which can be under the airbag or down inside the column under the dash plates. I do appreciate your quick response and trying to help, but I'll save this for the people who know!
