Jiggle key and turn, while turning wheel to right a little bit (about 30 lbs of force needed) to help unlock the tension on the immobilizer.

I have a ford focus 2003- today when I exited the car nothing was unusual..when I went to try to go to work the key will go in ignition but won't turn AT ALL. Anyone know what I can do to fix it?


your steering wheel has tension on it - are your front wheels parked against a curb or were you turning your steering wheel while you shut off the car? Try pulling hard left and turning the key. If that doesn't work, pull hard right while turning the key. You may have to pull really hard if you are a smaller person.

Why won't my ignition key turn over and my steering wheel is locked in place at the sametime?


I'm assuming you mean your key wont turn in the ignition. first off check to make sure the car is in park. then what you gotta do is put in the key and put a little pressure as if turning but dont turn too hard, then even though the steering wheel is locked you will have to try to move it a little, if you parked with your tires turned then you will want to try to turn the wheel in the same direction, (even locked you should be able to move it about a half inch) you will have to turn the wheel hard but it should move enough to allow the key to turn, you may have to jiggle the key a little in the ignition but it should eventually turn, just remember not to try turning the key too hard, the extra force wont make it go but can cause the key to break. this tends to happen when you turn the car off andthe steering wheel gets locked if the wheels are turned hard in either direction. also if multiple attempts at this still dont work, try taking the key out and turning it over and trying again. Even though both sides of the key are identicle, because of wear on the key and the ignition, sometimes when the wheel locks the ignition, it will only turn if the key is put in a certain way. Hope this helps, good luck

2001 ford taurus key won't turn ignition


The steering wheel was turned when the key was removed. So when you try to turn on the key, turn the wheel one way and the other way to release the pressure on the key. The key should turn ok.
Hope this helps.

Will 235/70R/15 tires fit on a 91 ford taurus?


Thats a tall tire but it depends on the size tire/rims that are on it. I have a 91 taurus that has 14 inch rims, the only draw back on taller tires are the fender wells, make sure the tires do not rub the fenders. especially the front, if you put them on, turn the front wheels to the left, then check to feel or see that they do not rub. then turn wheels to the right and recheck for clearance. good luck, if the fit and clear.

Where is the orfice tube on a 2002 ford taurus 3.0l


If you are talking oil and or trans then those tubes are located to the left and right rear of the engine as you face the front of the engine, Trans is to the left rear and oil to the front or right side of the engine, Keep in mind that if you have a front wheel drive engine then the front of that engine is facing the passengers side wheel well or the right front tire of the car.

1993 ford escort steering column locked and key will not operate


This probably isn't the solution, but are the wheels turned at an angle? Some times if the wheels are cut at an extreme angle when the key is turned off, their is rotational pressure on the stering wheel. That pressure may have the steering wheel lock in a bind. Try to turn the steering wheel to relieve this pressure as you are turning the key. Good luck.
