Wrong key broke off in ignition of a 2004 focus how do i removed this piece


Might have to have the barrel drilled out and replaced, I have removed broken keys with very fine crochet needles and a lot of patience. To take a barrel out without damage the key needs to be turned into the first position to depress the barrel lock pin, which you can't do with the broken key in. Good luck

Ignition problems


If the key won't turn in the ignition barrel, it could be as simple as the key is worn. If you have a spare key try that first.

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.

05 ford focus, key won't turn in the ignition, tried both sets of keys.


Try wiggling the key and tapping near the ignition and see.If the Key starts turning in the ignition.Also spray wd-40 in the ignition switch hole and let the wd-40 spray liquid remain in there for 30 minutes then see if you can turn the key in ignition.Try this wd-40 spray couple of times,if still the same problem then,the ignition has to be replaced.Also the keys are to be reprogrammed by the dealer.Without getting your car key reprogrammed they will not work with new ignition lock cylinder. This problem is very common in ford focus,many other users too have noticed this and are very disappointed with the ford service due to this problem.Click this link directly to see the same problem with other ford focus users;--- http://www.carcomplaints.com/Ford/Focus/2003/accessories-interior/key_wont_turn_in_the_ignition.shtml ----------------- Thank you.

Key won't turn in ignition


This problem is related to stuck up or cracked ignition cylinder.There are many other ford focus users facing the same problem.In some cases wiggling the key in the ignition helped but in most of the cases the ignition cylinder has to be replaced.And the new key has to be re-programmed.The cost of all this stuff is near to $300.Some users claimed this problem to the local ford dealers and they go this problem solved by the dealer but in some cases the car owners paid $300 for getting this problem solved.But first you can try bit of wiggling the key in the ignition and check.Also apply some wd-40 spray in the key ignition hole and let it remain there for few minutes then recheck by wiggling the key and check. ---------------------You can click this link below and read what others have to say about this same problem of " key won\'t turn in ignition on 2003 Ford Focus". http://www.carcomplaints.com/Ford/Focus/2003/accessories-interior/key_wont_turn_in_the_ignition.shtml --------------- That's it.

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.
