Question about 2006 Ford Focus
Yeah, have a 03 ZX5. Key is stuck in the "on" position, so not only can I not get key out, but I also can't turn the car off. Have to remove one of the battery cables to stop the engine from running. Tried just about everything I can think of or find to solve this with no luck so far.
You will probably need to find a workshop manual for the exact procedure for your car. Obviously something has broken inside your lock. I had something similar happen on my Toyota. Your car might be completely different but there will be a way to do it. I removed the plastic from around the steering column and found a small hole about 2mm in diameter in the side of the ignition switch. I inserted an Allan key in the hole. Any small metal thing would have done. While the key was in the accessories position inserting the metal thing allowed me to remove the barrel from the lock. Once I had it out I carefully removed the tumblers etc and found the problem. Take very carefull note where all the pieces are when you pull it apart. I did mine over a shoe box so I wouldn't loose anything. Otherwise you are going to need a lock smith to sort it out.
Hope this helped.
