A whopping 2 signatures!!!

I'm sorry, these online petitions never really do anything. Better have your people call the Ford head office and complain.

I'd sign if I had a problem, and if online petitions actually did anything.

Is this an issue for a lot of people? I never had any problems.

I haven't really had any problems with mine either but I have noticed on a couple of occasions where it was a bit hard to insert the key but that's it. I have heard of a lot of people having problems with their ignition cylinders so I went ahead and signed the petition anyway .... for all the good it will do lol

Not going to work fellas, its not a safety thing and not costly enough, they wont bite. The problem is pretty widespread but not a big enough deal for a recall. I can appreciate you guys wanting to get it covered, but i really dont think it will happen. If you contact Ford "after" you have had it fixed at a dealership, they may partially reimburse you for it, but thats as much as you can hope for.

This is the TSB on it and probably is all you can hope for:

FORD: 2000-2005 Focus


This article supersedes TSB 05-19-11 to update the Service Procedure.

ISSUE:
Some 2000-2005 Focus vehicles may exhibit ignition key related issues including difficulty or an inability to turn the key, an inability to remove the key, or (2005 only) the key-in-ignition warning chime continuing to sound even when the key is removed.

ACTION:
Based on the vehicle's symptom, refer to the appropriate Service Procedure.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

UNABLE TO REMOVE IGNITION KEY

Check if the inability to remove the key is the result of normal operation of the key removal inhibit circuit: In automatic transmission equipped vehicles, the key removal inhibit solenoid (within the ignition switch assembly) is energized when the gear selector is moved out of the park position, and prevents the ignition key from being removed. If the gear selector is in any position other than park when the key is rotated or turned off, the key removal inhibit circuit will not release the key (key cannot be removed). To remove the key, the gear selector must first be placed in the park position, then the ignition must be cycled to run and back to lock. This is normal, do not replace the ignition lock cylinder if it is operating as described.
Refer to Workshop Manual, Section 307-05 and follow diagnostics for the "shift interlock system". The shift interlock system includes the key removal inhibit circuit, which may be causing the concern. If the shift interlock system is operating correctly, replace the ignition lock cylinder. Refer to Workshop Manual, Section 501-14, "Ignition Lock Cylinder - Functional" removal and installation procedure.
DIFFICULT OR UNABLE TO TURN IGNITION KEY

Refer to Workshop Manual, Section 211-05 and follow diagnostics.
If Workshop Manual diagnostics determine that the ignition lock cylinder is the cause, replace the cylinder. If the ignition key cannot be turned, follow the "Ignition Lock Cylinder - Non Functional" removal and installation procedure in the 2005 model year Workshop Manual Section 501-14.
KEY-IN-IGNITION WARNING CHIME SOUNDING WITH IGNITION KEY REMOVED (2005 Model Year Only)

2005 Model Year Vehicles Produced Prior to 7/1/2004
Replace the ignition lock cylinder. Refer to Workshop Manual Section 501-14, "Ignition Lock Cylinder - Functional" removal and installation procedure.
2005 Model Year Vehicles Produced 7/1/2004 or Later
Refer to Workshop Manual, Section 413-09 and follow diagnostics for key-in ignition warning chime does not operate properly.

PART NUMBER PART NAME
5S4Z-11582-BB Ignition Lock Cylinder
