does the dash have to be removed

The illumination lights do work. Directional lights work. Highbeam indicator works.
Checked fuses & relays ok.

My key tumbler was changed year and a half ago for key stuck, last month the switch and tumbler was changed because key again. And a month later Mechanic changed the key because of key getting stuck again. I have to move things around to get the key out still.A month ago the radio and panel lights were coming on without the key too..And where the mileage is kept saying check gauges..ding ding ding.. after the tumbler getting changed again the lights have stopped ..But I also moved the steering wheel tilt from all the way up to partially down.. Hoping it would stop the lights and radio from coming on. I notice the key in ignition when door open does not beep. My mechanic says I need a new steering column.. Is this true. Or is it something else.. I just want my key to turn and come out of the ignition normal..I really need some help with troubleshooting this please help..Is changing the steering column going to help my problem?

I have also just replaced both belts from the duel alternator and just had the oil changed so what up with my truck

At first the van died, was able to jump start it to drive it home. Let it run for an hour to charge up. When I turned it off wouldn't start again and couldn't jumpstart it again.

Problem is always present. No apparent corrosion of ground wiring. Rear running lights work fine. Brake controller for electric brakes is working.

when turn key on all the clusters max then read , the temp goes below C

i had to remove and clean the sludge out of the oil pan and tube but i now have pressure. the only thing is that it dr started and tripped a code how do i prevent this i assume i need to prime the pump but it is mounted on the crank shaft its not like most other pumps everybody i talked to has never seen one like this. maybe i could get a little advise if possible

i need the length of time called for replacing oil pump on 06 ford e350 5.4lt vin “L”

sometimes the reverse lights will just stay on, and when hitting bumps they flicker. the back up alarm also beeps on and off with bumps, we pulled the fuse to that because it bothers our patients.
