Steering Lock - Timjones71 - 10-27-2017 11:42 PM

Looking for someone who knows anything about steering wheel lock mechanisms. After a column shifter delete and floor shift install, I’ve lost the steering lock feature when the car turns off. Not sure if it’s an electrical thing or...? I’ve had the battery unplugged for several weeks/months during the project. I know the high speed steering stiffener has to relearn after a few drive cycles. I just can’t seem to find anything on the column that looks responsible for the lock feature.

I just saw a post on another forum stating Ford stopped putting a lock on the column in 2005. Can anyone confirm this? If true then mine never had one. I’d say that is possible that I’ve forgotten as I’ve been driving a company car for the last 2 years and haven’t driven the MGM for almost a year since I’ve been doing all the work on it. Can anyone confirm?
