You need to disconnect the battery and the airbag diagnostic control module in the dash, do not remove the airbag until this is done, if it goes off you will have a really bad day.

I have 2003 ford focus -the key will go in ignition but won't turn. Also wheels are straight but steering wheel is turned n will not move..can anyone please help me?


It sounds like the steering wheel lock is in a bind. I suggest you put one hand on the key and the other on top of the steering wheel. You then try moving the wheel slightly to one side then the other as you try to turn the key. It might take a bit of oomph to get the steering wheel to move. I hope this helps.

Can anyone tell me why the ABS light comes on when I reach 70mph in my 2006 Ford Focus Zetec but disappears once I restart my engine? And would it be anything to do with recently having the passenger...


A dirty or clogged ABS wheel sensor located on the same wheel as bearing replaced. This can be confirmed with a diagnostics check...try a small shop to save money before the dealer for this...Maybe under $100. to replace including the diagnostic...Hope this helps.

Ford focus power steering problem


Hi, it does sound like your on the right track as the noise gets louder when you turn the wheel. without turning the wheel you should have a slight noise that will get louder when you turn the wheel this would then point me to believ the power steering pump needs replacing.

As your not loosing any fluid then the rest of the steering should be ok so changing the pump will solve your problem, just remember to make sure you bleed the pump properly and the steering properly after fitting the new one as not doing this properly could cause damage to seals inside the rack itself causing more problems than you need so double check you have bled all the air out ok.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Key stuck in ignition


Hope this helps all.... If the key is stuck (won't come out) and the column is NOT locked, one the gear shift there is a plastic sleeve. Put the gear shift in park...slide your hand below the knob and pull that sleeve up! Presto!!! it locks in park and the key comes out. I just put all the stuff i took apart back together... the other solutions may work but this is the first step to check... no tools and you know right away...

Loose steering wheel


Disconnect negative battery cable(10mm).
Insert key and rotate steering wheel until one of the mounting bolts for the airbag are visible from the backside (7/32 or 5.5 mm).Unscrew and rotate 180 degrees until the other is visible.Pry airbag off with a small screwdriver (being very careful) release yellow connector and place airbag aside with leather or vinyl pointing up.
Use a 24mm socket and tighten to 37 ft.pounds.
Reverse procedure to re-install airbag.
Connect cable and remember the computer will have to relearn its settings so car may run different for a while..
