    Bypassing ignition??

    I am looking at buying another 05 Explorer for parts.

    Problem is the key will not unlock the ignition or lock cylinder fell out....Two people telling it two different stories.

    It is between Phoenix and Tucson so I am trying to figure out how to drive it back, I do not want to rent a trailer, a car dolly might be OK, I can drop the drive shaft to save the transmission.

    Is the way to hot wire one of these so it can be driven home??

    Or an emergency by pass to get it running??

    Yeah there has to be a way, sounds like you are in need of hotwiring it. So you'd have to pull apart the steering column to get to the wires.

    Sadly I missed out getting that 05, we had a week of record braking rain and storms so my only window of going and getting it was closed and they got lucky and sold it.

    Thanks.
