I have a EL XR 8 sedan, the ignition won’t turn off,radio and a/c all operate even with the key out,I’ve checked and tested all relays which are ok, would it be a computer issue, not sure where else to look, I was thinking about changing out the ignition barrel,these things don’t fail very often though, has anyone had this issue before, cheers

I have a Ford Falcon 1996 wagon. I have a fuel problem and have changed one filter , where is the fuel pump located? as i can now get it to start by putting a little fuel in the intake, and can get it to idle for a few seconds (between 30sec-60sec), but then it dies. Thinking its the fuel pump now as it seem okay by way of ignition, battery, fuses etc

Pretty sure they are exactly the same thing, theres just a cover on the xr models from what i remember. ring up a wreckers in your area they would have an idea but just take off that cover and check it. From searching they are exactly the same.

Not needed. Just buy an aftermarket lead that plugs your new stereo into the Ford plug. If not, the coloured wires are the same if doing it manually.

EL ? After the 60’s & 70’s I needed the 80’s & 90’s to get over it, so I’m unlikely to remember anything about this vintage.
