Attempted too start car. Key turned toward start position but starter did nothing. Ingnition lock froze toward the start position. I do not know if the lock is in the run position. Lock does not turn, in any direction, and the key will not disengage from the lock. I read where all ford automobile ingnitions are serviced in the run position. I pulled the locked cylinder and replaced it with new FORD MOTORCRAFT lock and tumbler assembly (sw-2423). The new key and lock still will not turn and remains fixed as before. I read where the problem may be with the actuator rod? I removed all dash panels and the new ignition lock. I'm now at the point where it's necessary to unbolt the steering column to access the ignition switch and actuator. I'm concerned about reassembly of the steering column and its alignment - is there any danger that alignment issues may arise both with steering column and actuator?

Does anyone know where I can find a schematic that would tell me what the voltages should be at the heater control wiring harness pins, and cluster gauge voltages at the harness?
