I was sitting at a stop light and the car died and smoke came from steering column ever thing else works light radio etc but when you turn the key there is nothing no idiot lights no miles nothing the car...


Maybe the ignition switch burned up. A lot of juice travels through them and it has happened.
What is confusing is, lights will work without the switch. You should be able to turn lights on without the key in the ignition. But a radio normally needs the ignition turned to ACC (accessory) or ON. And some when left on don't turn off with the key off until the door is opened.

Possibly the ignition melted and is affected to where the radio still gets power as if it was in the ACC position

Key won't turn in ignition


This problem is related to stuck up or cracked ignition cylinder.There are many other ford focus users facing the same problem.In some cases wiggling the key in the ignition helped but in most of the cases the ignition cylinder has to be replaced.And the new key has to be re-programmed.The cost of all this stuff is near to $300.Some users claimed this problem to the local ford dealers and they go this problem solved by the dealer but in some cases the car owners paid $300 for getting this problem solved.But first you can try bit of wiggling the key in the ignition and check.Also apply some wd-40 spray in the key ignition hole and let it remain there for few minutes then recheck by wiggling the key and check. ---------------------You can click this link below and read what others have to say about this same problem of " key won\'t turn in ignition on 2003 Ford Focus". http://www.carcomplaints.com/Ford/Focus/2003/accessories-interior/key_wont_turn_in_the_ignition.shtml --------------- That's it.

I have a 2003 ford focus SE. I am having problems


In my opinion it sounds like a problem from inside the fuel tank but don't quote me on this. With multiple sensors and switches related to fuel movement throughout the vehicle you're truly better off having a professional deal with this, unfortunately it will cost a few dollars.

My Wheel is looked on my ford focus 2003. The key will not turn or wheel. How do I fix?


Had this same issue, turned out to be the ignition switch went bad which apparently is very common for many cars including Ford Focuses. I had Triple AAA check it out, and they told me they see this problem quite often, $277 later, car is starting with no problems. One of post we had read awhile back ago, was to hit your key in with the palm of your hand and it should get your ignition unlocked. Though, if this does work realize its only temporary, as you will get stuck one day when the key cylinders completely lock up. Good Luck!
