Check your power steering belt. it may have broke or slipped off the pulley. if it seems ok check your fluid level. if it is still at normal operating level for hot or cold then your power steering pump may have just seized up and you may have to replace it.

I have a ford focus 2003- today when I exited the car nothing was unusual..when I went to try to go to work the key will go in ignition but won't turn AT ALL. Anyone know what I can do to fix it?


your steering wheel has tension on it - are your front wheels parked against a curb or were you turning your steering wheel while you shut off the car? Try pulling hard left and turning the key. If that doesn't work, pull hard right while turning the key. You may have to pull really hard if you are a smaller person.

Drove mpv off curb/ sidewalk, wont start now, turns over but suddenly wont start! Is there a switch somewhere that shuts off fuel system that needs to be reset, from the hard hit?


there is a fuel cut off, you will need to reset it:

The fuel pump relay is located under the carpet on the passenger side (front). Remove the kick panel and the door runner lift carpet. It is to the right of the PCM (computer). Good Luck Tim

ok real common. get your vin and call your local gm dealer. there is a recall on these and express vans, under hard load, the input shaft to the pump shears internally. to check, dont disasemble anything, put a pry bar behind pump pulley, pry lighty it will slide in and out, all the way if you keep pulling. i hope your covered for a free one its an old recall. good luck!
