Q: Ignition not turning.

asked by on

The ignition is stuck. When I put the key in the ignition, it won't turn.

This is a common problem with the Ford Focus. Most likely, the ignition cylinder is bad and requires replacement. A certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, will be able to repair this for you.
