2000 Ford Focus

My Focus has just disabled my ignition and I don't know how to start it. It has done this before and I think it has something to do with locking the car so a thief can't steal it. Can someone help me to restart it?

High there Geoff here sounds to me like a voltage drain enough to make the vehicle think it si being stolen ,does your vehicle have an aftermarket security system if so i would expect if it is more than afew years old that it has developed a problem , advice ; disconect battery , leave for a couple of days so that the 'kam' (keep alive memory) in the computer will drain ,but not to the point where it will lose the codes , that would take months of disconection then when you get it going take to an auto elctrician, for apprasal , im a mechanic and had to do that myself with my ford, hope this helps ( dont try this on latter than 2004 models as they lose there codes quikly)

Has it always done this? A gasoline engine `rev-limiter' on a lot of Fords kicks out at 4000, so with a diesel, I would think 3000 might be a pre-set limit? don-ohio

Replace the ignition tumbler is the best way to repair your problem. You could try spraying a lubricant such as wd40 in the hole and try and lube up the pins inside. Good luck.

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.
