The only way to get the cylinder out is to either break the inside of the cylinder out or drill the inside out with a 1/2" drill bit about 1 1/2- 2" in. the lock cylinder has to be in the run position before it will come out. there is a little ball that has to be pushed in on the bottom of the cylinder, with an access hole in the column

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.

Key wont turn in ignition


try turning the steering wheel back and forth hard while trying to turn the key, in case the steering lock locked up hard. if that doesnt do it you probably need a new ignition cylinder.

Ford Focus 2004 - key won't turn in ignition


these vehicles have a lot of problems with ignition cylinders binding up. It needs to be replaced with an updated cylinder. If you tap on the key with a small hammer or something like it while turning the key you can get it to turn

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.
