SOURCE: my key will not turn

Will the key go in and out of the ignition? If you can take the key from the ignition, I would use WD40 and lubricate the ignition lock until it is almost overly lubricated and take the key and push it in the lock and tap the end of the key into the lock with a hammer (remember, I said TAP). These things might get your car ignition to work long enough to get your car ignition into the ON position. at that point removal of the ignition cylinder is very easy. if you can't get the key to turn go to this page to see about drilling out the lock so it will turn. http://www.autosafety.org/2000-2005-ford-focus-ignition-lock-cylinder.

I just changed out the ignition cylinder in my 2002 Focus and it was a five minute job because I could get the old cylinder in the ON position and didn't have to drill it out. and Tousley ford did me great on the price!
Good luck.

SOURCE: steering wheel locked and ignition wont turn

Yes it does sound to me like the key is the problem.
the only other thing for a steering locking up would be the steering lock silenoid but that is activated by the brake pedal and the key has to be turned
if this is the orginal key it could be something else because the key and the tumblers inside the ingintion would wear down the same time together,but is the is a replacement key or back-up it will be the key because the tumblers would have been worn done by a different key.
try wiggling the key as you turn maybe you can get it to turn.
You will likely have to replace the ignition and key together.

SOURCE: 2000 ford focus wagon, hatch wont open!

Its more than likely the door lock actuator and if so your going to have to take the inside door panel off to get to it. It is possible to do it, its just a pain

How do i replace ignition switch 2000 ford focus


Take the lower cover off and the tilt lever if equiped. Then turn the igniton one click and use a pen to push the pin up from the under side of the lock cylinder and the cylinder will come out rather easy. If your actually tring to get the switch out remove the lower cover and then remove the screws holding the switch to the colum. Unplug the switch harness at the bottom of the colum and remove.

2000 FORD FOCUS IGNITION REPLACEMENT INSTRUCTIONS


Your ignition is what supplys your spark pluggs with electricity in order to creat combustion in your engine. Most older cars have distributers, if you drive a focus with a zetec it will have a coil pack. I have a 2002 Focus SVT that I upgraded the ignition system to a full racing system for around $200. What you need to change is the coil pack, spark pluggs and spark plugg wires. You only have to remove about four bolts on the coil pack and it just pulls out.

The ignition key turns like normal but it does not do anything. I replaced the ignition switch and it does the same thing. When you turn the key it is like it freely turns like the tumblers are not turning


Take the switch back out and carefully inspect the mechanics of its operation. On my Focus, the lock turns a part in the back that operates the ignition. The Taurus may be different, but it still has to turn the ignition. It sounds like there is some kind of trouble with the engagement. Good Luck.
