Steering Column Repair/1991 Bronco ignition, tilt column


My Bronco key will start and stop the engine. But, must hold pressure on the key, or it will turn back to far and shut off the engine. The pressure to hold towards the start side is minute, or just enough to keep it from turning counter-clockwise too far. All of the other electrical systems stay on.
