Things You'll Need:

Adjustable wrench
Philips screwdriver
Paper clip
Ignition switch
Follow this simple steps

Open the hood and disconnect the cable from the negative terminal on the battery by loosening it with an adjustable wrench in a counterclockwise direction. Lift the cable off of the terminal and push it aside. Remove the plastic trim covers on the steering column from inside the passenger compartment by turning out the holding screws on the underside of the column with a Philips screwdriver in a counterclockwise direction. Set the trim covers and screws aside. Insert the key into the ignition switch and turn it to the ON position.
Straighten out a paper clip and insert one end of it into the hole on the side of the ignition cylinder facing the driver. Pull the ignition cylinder out towards the left hand side of the car once the paper clip releases the pin that holds the cylinder in place. Remove the key from the old cylinder and place it into the new ignition switch. Push the switch assembly into the cavity that the old switch was removed from until it locks into place. Turn the key to the OFF position and remove it if desired.

Replace the plastic trim covers and tighten the holding screws in a clockwise direction with a Philips screwdriver.
Place the battery cable back onto the negative battery terminal and tighten it with an adjustable wrench in a clockwise direction. Close the hood.

2000 ford focus wagon se dies after high idle... Change coil pack.plugs. wires...still misfired and dies as soon as I let go of gas....what could this be?

Timing, engine control module, throttle position sensor, air flow meter. Run a diagnostic test to see what codes it shows so you can determine the exact cause.

Trouble code P0352

Sorry, this one could be too many things. I would only be guessing. All of the problems like these that have happened to me has to do with fuel pressure from the pump. Trust this one to a mechanic with the right test equipment or you will be spending a lot of money replacing parts that may or may not be the problem.

You should do a diagnostic with a scan tool first.

Probably an ignition coil problem. Replace it and replace also the spark plugs.

How do I change the coil pack in my 2005 ford taurus

Welcome to Fixya.

Here's the procedure how to replace the ignition coil pack of your car.

Understand basic safety procedures. Any time you work on your Ford Focus, you should set the emergency brake and disconnect the negative, or ground, cable from the battery. Some mechanics recommend you isolate the cable to prevent accidental contact, which could spark a connection.
Release the spark plug wires from the Ford Focus ignition coil pack. You may need to pinch or press a release to unlock the wires.
Use a socket set or a small wrench to unbolt the ignition coil connectors. You also need to undo the capacitor electrical connectors. As you work, make note of which connectors go where--this pays off you when you reassemble the parts.
Locate the bracket that holds the ignition coil pack and the electrical capacitor in place. Undo the fasteners that secure them.
Separate the Ford Focus ignition coil pack from the mounting system. Replace the old Focus ignition coil pack with a new one. Verify the new ignition coil pack works with your engine, even if you use a universal ignition coil pack.
Reassemble the parts. If you have a Torque wrench, use it to tighten the ignition coil bolts with 7 inch pounds of torque (10 Nm).

Thank you for using Fixya!

My 2000 Ford Focus SE is throwing a P0302 code for misfire in cylinder 2. We replaced the spark plugs and wires, cleaned the fuel injectors, and checked all fluids. It still misfires and my gas mileage is...

Ignition coil is most likely..clogged injector is uncommon but possible..fuel injector cleaner can only do so much..coil would be the thing to start with..
