I have a 2000 Ford Focus. I put the key in the ignition, but it won't unlock. What can I do to unlock the ignition? Thanks!


Are you using a key with a "Chip"? or a copied one?
You can get the engine to "ON" position with a crafted key that'll open the doors, but without the proper coded key the Ignition won't go off.

Hi there. my friend is stuck on the road and she can put the key into the ignition but cant turn it, the steering wheel is locked. she has tried everything... whats goin on? 2000 ford focus


Very common issue for this model. She needs to buy a buildable ignition from the dealer and get the key code with her vin # so she can make it match her anti theft key, then the ignition lock cylinder needs to be drilled out to remove it.

2000 FORD FOCUS IGNITION REPLACEMENT INSTRUCTIONS


Your ignition is what supplys your spark pluggs with electricity in order to creat combustion in your engine. Most older cars have distributers, if you drive a focus with a zetec it will have a coil pack. I have a 2002 Focus SVT that I upgraded the ignition system to a full racing system for around $200. What you need to change is the coil pack, spark pluggs and spark plugg wires. You only have to remove about four bolts on the coil pack and it just pulls out.

My key will not turn in my 2000 ford focus has anyone had this problem and not had to replace ignition


Will the key go in and out of the ignition? If you can take the key from the ignition, I would use WD40 and lubricate the ignition lock until it is almost overly lubricated and take the key and push it in the lock and tap the end of the key into the lock with a hammer (remember, I said TAP). These things might get your car ignition to work long enough to get your car ignition into the ON position. at that point removal of the ignition cylinder is very easy. if you can't get the key to turn go to this page to see about drilling out the lock so it will turn. http://www.autosafety.org/2000-2005-ford-focus-ignition-lock-cylinder.

Go to this website and get in contact with Tousley Ford. They have great prices on ford parts if you are in the USA.

I just changed out the ignition cylinder in my 2002 Focus and it was a five minute job because I could get the old cylinder in the ON position and didn't have to drill it out. and Tousley ford did me great on the price!
Good luck.
