Is the security light or the little red light blinking fast? If so lock the car down. Open the drivers door with the key and start. No start, do it again open on the passenger side. Still no start and the light flashing fast. The car needs put on a scanner for codes. Code readers don't read security. Could be the key, receiver,wires, or computers.

First of all in 2005 Ford Focus was made in 2.0 and 2.3 L only. Is the year correct?
Check all the points Mike asked you to check. If you can not hear any click on turning the ignition key then you possibly you have blown fuse.
In 2005 a common problem was blowing of Fuse #9 in Engine Fuse box. please do following tests.
1. Check fuse F1.9 20A in the engine compartment fuse box to be sure it shows full battery voltage at all times.

2. Replace the fuse if it is blown and recheck operation.

3. If the fuse is blown, check to see if it blows once it is replaced. If it does, verify if it blows with the key on or off. If it blows with the key off, check for a short to ground between the fuse and Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) and the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). If the fuse blows only when the key is turned on, the short is after the PCM power relay most likely in the wiring to any of the components the PCM power relay feeds. ONE TIME HAD BLOWN #9 FUSE IN ENGINE FUSE BLOCK. WOULD ONLY BLOW WHEN PCM RELAY PLUGGED IN AND KEY ON. FOUND IGNITION CAPACITOR WIRE HAD CAME OUT OF ITS HOLE AND WAS SHORTED TO THE BRACKETT. THIS IS LOCATED AT THE FRONT OF THE MOTOR BY THE OIL CAP. MAYBEE SOMEONE KNOCKED IT OUT WHEN CHANGING THE OIL.

Turn key to On.
Turn on headlights manually... Do they come on?
Are there any lights on the dash?
If yes to these, battery is possibly not the sole problem.
Check for good, tight and clean connections at battery terminal posts!
If yes to above, continue on & get a helper... Turn key past on, to Start position.
Do you hear a click sound at time key is turned to Start?
If yes, then ignition switch is not problem, starter relay is getting power, and is now sending power to starter, but starter is not working.
Pic any No's... Then look there.
Good luck.

Why is there no reaction and it doesn't start?


your anti theft device is activated,you need to lock and unlock your doors a couple times with the key fob,not the key,and then you need to put the key in the ignition and start it,if you dont have your key fob,call your car dealer to get a new one,they are programmed for each car only,you cannot bypass it.

What happens when you put baking sod and vinegar to a fuse block under hood


I don't know why you would put it in your fuse block but it is going to foam heavily. That is the reaction and two items you put together for the science experiment (making a volcano). Even if the cylinder allows you to turn the without the key it should not start without the coded key.

1998 Mazda Protoge won't start


One of two things. Starter (or starter solenoid) or Neutral Safety Switch. Check the starter by disconnecting the EFI relay, then jump a wire from the positive term of battery to lug on starter solenoid does it crank okay? If not, then check the NSS, located under the airbox, can be adjusted using the offset bolt, just a tiny bit at a time, still no start? replace the NSS and adjust as necessary.

2005 jeep wont start turn key starter clicks


The best thing to do right now, would be to replace the battery. it seems like the battery cannot make the chemical reaction to start your car. The first thing would be to jump start your car. Then if it dies again i would be replacing the battery. If that does not solve your problem, Then i would be looking at the alternator.

Electrical all comes on with turn of key but starter wont engage in my 1997 Dodge Caravan


Either the battery wire may be loose or the battery may not have sufficient power to start the vehicle. Check the battery wire for perfect contact. If the contact is having white deposit through chemical reaction, apply hot water on it or apply WD 40. Recharge the battery. Even after all this if the car doesn't start, check the Starter.

Hi bobola1710,
Try a replacement battery.....You'll probably need to have the ignition re-coded
