I have 2003 ford focus -the key will go in ignition but won't turn. Also wheels are straight but steering wheel is turned n will not move..can anyone please help me?


It sounds like the steering wheel lock is in a bind. I suggest you put one hand on the key and the other on top of the steering wheel. You then try moving the wheel slightly to one side then the other as you try to turn the key. It might take a bit of oomph to get the steering wheel to move. I hope this helps.

My ford focus 2003 zts steering is locked and the key cant turn how do i unlocked the steering wheel when I open the base of the wheel.


try turning the steering while at the same time turning the key, also try spraying some wd40 into the keyhole and try the same.

if this does not work, usually you have to drill out the dead lock but then afterwards you will need a new steering lock if you want it in the future. this has been dont this way to stop theves deactivating the lock.


I hope this was useful.

Key will not turn in the ignition


Make sure you did not activate the steering lock. Does the steering wheel turn the usual amount it should while the car is off, or is it locked in place? Try turning the steering wheel as far left or right as it will go. It should not be far. Then try turning the key.

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.

If you turn the steering wheel in either direction and the key switch does not free up , then you need to have the lock cylnder replaced.

2001 ford focus steering is lock, how to unlock it? this is the third time it happened.is this serious?


When you try to start the car does the key seem stuck, not turning? Occasionally I have to turn the steering wheel just a little before the key will turn. Always try to straighten your front wheels when you park before turning off the car, this puts less strain on the locking part of the steering wheel and makes it easier to start the car next time. The serious part of a steering wheel is the air bag, do not try to disassemble the steering wheel yourself, you may want to take it to a mechanic you trust in case an interior part of your steering wheel needs replacing.

That's my guess.
