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;---http://www.carcomplaints.com/Ford/Focus/2003/accessories-interior/key_wont_turn_in_the_ignition.shtml

take the chip out of the old key and fit it into the new key if possible ,if not then tape old key behind the shroud next to transponder and it will work till you can get the new keys programmed in the dealer ,now on some of these older models but dont quote me ,if you put the new key in the ignition and open and close the doorlock with the original key it will programme the new key but this may only be on europeon models
