SOURCE: broken ignition barrel ford laser 1989 model


this is the procedure to remove the ignition barrel:

Remove the steering column surround and you should see a black round thing on the left hand side, this is the ignition switch. Remove this and you will see there is one screw holding the ignition barrel on, remove and you then need to insert your key and turn it to the ACC position. you should now be able to withdraw the barrel using the key but take care not to snap the key off in the barrel.

Please don't forget to rate or accept the solution as fixya.

SOURCE: i have a R reg

Most likely there you have a security system VAT (Vehicle Anti-Theft) module. If you try to bypass this the car will not start. Have a mechanic or yourself get to the main wiring harness to the ignition in the steering column under the dash, unplug it and use another ignition with a key in it to learn the security system code first before trying to start it.

How hard is it to change an ignition switch

Not that hard if you are mechanically inclined. The flat rate book time is .8 of an hour. You need to remove the steering wheel bezel covers and the switch is held in place by clips.

Wrong key broke off in ignition of a 2004 focus how do i removed this piece

Might have to have the barrel drilled out and replaced, I have removed broken keys with very fine crochet needles and a lot of patience. To take a barrel out without damage the key needs to be turned into the first position to depress the barrel lock pin, which you can't do with the broken key in. Good luck

My ignition will not turn, the steering is locked also. I had a previous problem where when you put the key in the car would not crank, turn over or anything. Then after a while it would just crank up.

The previous problem sounds like it was probably the starter motor playing up but may of been related to your current problem. The ignition barrel sometimes locks at the same time as the steering and you have to move the steering wheel that little bit of movement back and forward whilst turning the key to unlock them. If this does not work then it may be a problem with the ignition barrel which may need replacing. The other 2 things it could be is the starter relay or a fuse.

05 ford focus, key won't turn in the ignition, tried both sets of keys.

Try wiggling the key and tapping near the ignition and see.If the Key starts turning in the ignition.Also spray wd-40 in the ignition switch hole and let the wd-40 spray liquid remain in there for 30 minutes then see if you can turn the key in ignition.Try this wd-40 spray couple of times,if still the same problem then,the ignition has to be replaced.Also the keys are to be reprogrammed by the dealer.Without getting your car key reprogrammed they will not work with new ignition lock cylinder. This problem is very common in ford focus,many other users too have noticed this and are very disappointed with the ford service due to this problem.Click this link directly to see the same problem with other ford focus users;--- ----------------- Thank you.

I would check the ignition switch, these are prone to key and barrel wear, Sounds silly but if you have another key try that as a newer,less worn profile key can sometimes help with a solution
