2002 Ford Focus 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 103000 miles
My car ignition switch will not turn. This happened once or twice before several months back but a jiggle of the steering wheel and 2nd try it turned and car stared. 4 days ago it again I would insert key and would not turn no matter how much jiggle the steering wheel. That night when I got back home from work I inserted the key and the ignition switched easily turned no problem. Next morning again insert key and would not turn. It does not matter wether I insert my ignition key or my wife's ignition key. The key will not turn at all in the ignition. I have now tried several times over the weekend and still will not turn. I also can not push in the button on the floor mounted stick shift. The button on the stick shift is also locked and will not puch in to move the stick shift. The steering system is not under a load for the car was driven in a straight line in my drive way so there is no turn to the wheels nor are they under a pressure load to be putting a bind on the lock in the steering column.
have the same problem?
