I have a Ford focus 2002 and the wheel is locked and the car won't start.I am assuming based on my research that it is the ignition cylinder that is out and that it the problem. my question is how would I go about this repair because I don't have money to pay a mechanic and this repair is not part of my warranty says ford auto. I can't get the key to start ...
My ignition cylinder in my Ford Focus won't turn with the key in, is there anything I can do without bringing it to the dealer? Can a regular Locksmith or possibly myself fix this problem?
