Car must be in park fully for the key to be removed. considering the problem with going into drive. I would suspect the shift cable or its attachments or bushings

If this is a manual transmission the clutch has burned out, it may need to be replaced, if you do not do your own mechanic work I would suggest that you take it to a good local repair shop and have them check it out. If this is an automatic I would still suggest the same, but the actual problem could be more complex. Hope this helps, let me know.

SOURCE: I have to replace a

no chance then as it has to be in acc position to change just the barrel ,its a complete new steering lock iam afraid ,be carefull with the transponder and dont forget to change the chip in the key over as well ,you may be able to yank it out with a slide hammer though but its may damage the housing ,best is to renew the whole steering lock assembly but its a difficult to remove the old one as the heads shear off the bolts when fitted but sometimes a centre punch will slacken the bolts ,you will have to remove the whole steering wheel assembly though to change the assembly

cut off switch could still be bad. First my sure gas is getting to the engine....if so then this indicates that fuel system is working properly. Sounds like car may not be firering. Things that could cause this is coil bad, ingnition modual failed or maybe pickup coil."sensor maybe some where..timing out which would indicate timing belt or chain or gears are broke......Keep in mind these are just some things that could cause your problem and gives you ideal what to look for........hope this info helps and good luck....Please rate this post and if you need more help then fill free to contact me and we will try to get ya back on the road......

I want to disable the warning chime on 95 escort wagon lx


The waring chime is located above the fuse box under the dash, open door with the keys in the ignition, let it chime and follow the sound, it will make it easier to find, then unplug it. Hope this helps.

I just recently bought an 89 ford escort LX and there was no key with it. the car would start with out a key until today when i turned the ignition switch all the way back and it locked the wheel. now i...


drill out the lock with a 5 mm drill bit to the depth of the key, the drill will turn the lock and probably start the car when it is drilled out just enough and the key will still work in the lock if you push it right in only any key will now fit and this key will fall out going round corners... you can get the ignition barrel and key for about £25 from car breakers, and now the lock is drilled once you push in the buttons on the bottom of the barrel it will come out easily = theres always an escort on the breakers, any MK4 escort lock will fit, get the door locks and keys too if you dont want more than one key with the car - having mismatched keys reduced the resale value also.

93 escort lx won't start


that is your clutch position sensor. you can either replace it or you can straighten a paperclip and stick it in the two holes in the front facing the clutch pedal. you have to get to the top of the clutch pedal to see the sensor
