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.

At 100kph the wheel will start to wiggle vigorously.the car has undergone wheel alignment and wheel balancing.what shall we do next?


If it starts shaking after 100kph then its either the power steering pump or the steering box is going bad. Do you hear wizzing noises when you turn the wheel right and left (similar to a turbo boost sound)? Have you recently notices problems with steering like being delayed?

The only other thing that would cause something like that would be if the tires are worn badly on places. If this was the problem, it would not really shake the wheel - but when the tires hit a bump or notch in the road it would allow them to go in that direction easier then usual. So it would seem like something was grabbing the wheel or changing the course while driving.

If you steering box is going bad, you will notice other things like a delay from when the wheels start to respond after you have turned your steering wheel in a certain direction. if your turning right and there seems to be a delay as to when your wheels begin to turn then you need to have the box checked.

After checking the box if that is not the problem, try adding power steering fluid and see if that fixes the problem. If it doesn't then have the power steering pump checked.

My ford focus has started humming in front end


this sounds like a hub bearing, to determine which one it is when your driving and you here the noise turn the steering wheel slightly left and then slightly right, the noise should get louder or lighter. If louder on right turn then it would be left bearing is bad because your putting more weight on the left side

A 2002 ford Focus with the steer locked and can't start, tried turning the wheels to unlock but it still wont release. help Al


Use all the force you can muster to turn the wheel to the left while trying to turn the key. If that doesn't work, try doing the same thing, just turn it to the right. Sometimes the steering wheel lock pin can be stubborn. also **** it to the left and right really hard when trying the key. It also helps to pick the front of the car up with a jack when doing this.

Steering wheel and starter locked on my 2002 ford focus


It sounds like when you parked your car, that you over turned your steering wheel to far .. try this .. when you go to start , turn the wheel what ever the direction your tires are facing, it may be a little hard ... hold the wheel in place then turn the ignition ...

let me know if this works for you....


Good luck

Front end and steering wheel shakes


when slowing to make right turn is it more like a clicking noise, does it do it while turning or just when slowing down. If it is while you are turning it is most likely the right cv axle drive shaft popping. When at a stop with ac on does it shake if you put it in park and how do the rpms read in park or in drive. Did they change the trans mount also dont thank that is it just trying to get a better understanding so I can better assist you.
