Question about 2000 Ford Focus
Just recently i was out driving and parked off at a friends house. when i went to leave, my 2000 ford focus wouldnt start. the ignition woulndt even turn and now the wheel is locked. i think it might be the key because the edges have been worn smooth but wondering if it could be anything else?
Yes it does sound to me like the key is the problem.
the only other thing for a steering locking up would be the steering lock silenoid but that is activated by the brake pedal and the key has to be turned
if this is the orginal key it could be something else because the key and the tumblers inside the ingintion would wear down the same time together,but is the is a replacement key or back-up it will be the key because the tumblers would have been worn done by a different key.
try wiggling the key as you turn maybe you can get it to turn.
You will likely have to replace the ignition and key together.
