Ford Focus Ignition Tumbler Tutorial
This is a video tutorial for replacing a key or ignition tumbler in a Ford
Focus 2003. This is a common problem, that the key will not turn (often at
about 70k miles). It is inevitable on all Focuses from 2000-? The key
doesn't turn and you have to hit the end of the key to get it to work. The
Ford dealership charges $500 or more, a locksmith charges $150 or more, but
this video shows you how you can fix it for $45 total. It is not too
difficult for someone who has basic understanding of working with tools.

1995 Ford F-250 4X4 Ignition Switch Replacement
This video details the troubleshooting process I went through when
diagnosing the binding ignition switch concern in the start position.

Interestingly, what I thought was the problem (a worn ignition switch)
turned out to not be the problem at all. The problem with the key binding
in the start position is within the actuator rod mechanism. These parts
were lubricated as an initial corrective action, but that didn't solve the
The loose gear selector lever and binding ignition switch, though annoying,
aren't big enough issues at this point to invest more money to correct. So
I left things as they were so I can drive the truck and focus on more
pressing maintenance issues. I will research sourcing these parts and will
likely complete these repairs at a later date if these issues become
Lastly, the smoke and burning smell coming from the cluster/column area was
investigated and ultimately determined to be a failed component (a MOV) on
the speedometer board which isn't critical to gauge or vehicle operation.
Like the ignition switch/gear selector lever concern, this issue can wait
until I can source the replacement part or repair the part myself at a
I keep these videos real and what you see is what you get with no editing.
Sometimes, even after good troubleshooting, you're faced with a decision to
either take things a step further and complete the repair or pick your
battles and attack the issues later. This is one of those occasions. There
are other items I need to address with this truck first so I will likely
circle back to address the above items at a later date. You can't always
fix everything all at once. (9/20/2012)
