In 1996 Ford relented to public pressure and recalled 8.7 million of its models ranging from 1988 to 1992 to replace the ignition switches.

However, Ford never recalled the 2000-2003 Ford Focus. Unfortunately, this is a common problem and when Automotive Locksmiths first encountered faulty Ford Focus ignitions we replaced them with OEM Ford parts that would fail again. The Ford Focus sidebar ignition cannot be repaired and must be replaced with a quality replacement product from Strattec that is designed without the problem components.

Replace your Ford Focus ignition with the Strattec replacement ignition if you have one or more of the following problems:

– Difficulty in turning the key in the ignition.

– Sticking ignition.

– Key is dirty after removing or turning.

– Unable to remove the key.

– Key locked in a position.

– Key will no longer turn the ignition.

In conclusion, if you have a 2000-2003 Ford Focus it is only a matter of time before you will have to replace your ignition. Do not wait until you are stranded.
