Ignition key assemble removal

Is the transmission for REAL locked in "Park"? You may need to pull apart the steering column to verify the interlock linkage between the shifter lever and the key cylinder.

I am having a hard time getting my 2002 ford escort into park, and staying, as well as my key not coming out.

The key not coming out is directly tied into the car not going into park far enough.You may have something stuck down inside your gear shift area keeping the handle from going all the way into park or something could have gotten in a wedged itself up near your shifter levers on top and the side of the transmission. I would pull off the shifter console first and make sure nothing is binding the shift levers before looking at the ignition switch area.Good luck.

98 escort key stuck in ignition

a EAST fix, I removed the plastic around the steering wheel (3 bolts under the steering wheel) and I manually pulled the lever toward you to remove the key. THEN I used a zip tie to hold it back so my key can come out from now on... saved you $300 for a new tumbler

EASY fix and cost $.05cents.

This was done on my 2001 ford escort and it should work with other fords, like the focus model.

2002 Ford Explorer: Security system prevents car from starting.

Your ignition requires a radio signal from a chip inside your key to start the car . Your car wont start because you are using the wrong key, your ignition is no longer able to read the key (ignition replacement), or your key is malfunctioning.
