Question about 2001 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Have a 2001 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer edition. Tried to start today. Key goes in fine but cannot turn to start. Steering wheel seems like it's turned to the right a little. Open Door chimes rings; theft light on dash flashes. Was fine yesterday - have had no problems.Happened once over a year ago - but when husband tried, it was fine. Do I need to turn the steering wheel to unjam or something. Have tried but can't get it to move.

Can the 1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer be lubricated?


I'm guessing by the year that you have pretty high mileage on your SUV. If that is the case then you will probably need to rebuild front end. that should take care of the problem. Good luck.

Drivers door does not lock


you will have to remove the door panel, check for a disconnected linkage or a broken door latch, sometimes it just needs cleaning and lube, good luck.
