2010 focus SEL here lately i have had to push in hard and down to get to start and later stand on head with left leg up. No seriously about ready pull my hair out. i have replaced SWITCH on left side of steering wheel did not do any good so i bought a ignition switch and keyed it like my original so i could keep my keys.
Here is the kicker, it seems that the rod is not engaging the switch if i leave the switch out i can use a screw driver and put my key in cylinder and turn to on position and put screw driver in and turn it will start now i have made sure the switch is straight up n down.
So what is the secret to get this to work?
