2000 Ford Focus Ignition

  • 2000 FORD FOCUS
  • 4 CYL

I have a problem with my key not going all the way into the iginiton. The lights and horn and everything like that works but I can't get the key to go ALL the way in. It has happened once before but I jiggled the keys and it went in but now nothing. I was just wondering if it was an ignition problem or what else it could be.

It sounds like a bad ignition cylinder. Focus are notorious for that. A lot of time people have trouble turning their key to start the car as well... You can try replacing the cylinder yourself if you're mechanically inclined. If not I suggest you call a locksmith; chances are he fixed Focus ignitions before and knows the drill... Literally. I would stay away from Ford dealers... They're expensive and will simply put another crappy Ford ignition in there at a cost of around $400-500.
If you do some research online you'll find a lot of websites with people having similar problems as yours.
