I learned something NEW about my Focus.

I learned something NEW about my Focus. It is possible to lock yourself out of the car, with the key IN the ignition, WITH the engine running. How it happened was simple. It was dark, and instead of hitting the 'unlock' button just before shutting the door, I hit the lock button. Catastrophe averted as my buddy ran me home to get my other set of keys. I mentioned all this to the parts guy at Cerame Ford (quick lane) and he made me a key just for opening the doors (no pats), which now resides in my wallet. He also did not charge me which I thought was really nice. I am not sure what years do this. But just FYI: It is really cheap insurance to get one made for your car, as a locksmith quote on the night in question was $130.

Steeda SRI w/CAI intake. Trubendz SS 2.5" . FR Susp/Struts. Tune by Tom (FocusPower). Rota Grids. SAP rear spoiler. Custom front air dam, rocker panel bits and Rear valance.
