I believe you will find the problem with the ignition switch at the base of the column. If I remember right the return spring is in the switch.........jack

PS. I removed the other two posts you made with the same question

Thanks , You where right, I can't tell how many people I asked,
I even went to a friend who has a repair shop, his advise was to replace the column, I'm glad i heard from you.
As you can see I'm new to this forum, Didn't know where to place the question.
Everything works great now
Thanks again for the help ... jim
