Thank you all for posting your issues with the: 2008 Ford Focus
*issue with the ignition key and having to push the key in hard,while turning to "start"
My luck ran out with this issue and came here to gather information and limit my "case scenario" from yall's posts.
My car is the 2008 and has only 36,000 miles, ignitions,housings, lock modules doesn't lie about how many times the car has been?? started and stopped,at any milage! **and the Florida sun?doesn't care either how many mileage or what year?
It turned out for me: steering column flange/lock housing.
Thank you all for being so accurate and offering of advice! ???????

I have a Ford Focus 2008 and have this same ignition problem. I have to drop the steering wheel down and sometimes turn the key 5-10 times to get the car to start. Would having remote start put in solve this problem?

no start nothing starting 2008 one answer remote start?

I am able tobypass my 2008 focus start problems by using my remote start. 1) press button on fob for remote start, 2)put key into ignition switch turn full (as in normal start). The remote starts the engine,the key turns on ignition. Am running car this way. I am certain that an new housing is the final repair. Question:Using remote this way any future problems? Regards, Abe G

Using the remote starter won't hurt anything, I just wouldn't depend on it alone for the long run.

Hello guys,

I'm having the same issue with 2013 auto focus with 90k miles on it.

Replaced the ignition switch, the starter and it still doesn't start. All the symptoms are the same, turn key and lights come on but no cranking or clicking

My question is, will the instructions that TiIngot posted work for the 2013 model? I'm driving myself crazy chasing this issue.

The problem still exists and its 2018...and the car I have is a 2008! Ford really does need to do a recall on this issue.

not sure if your having the same issue as mine.. but a locksmith was able to code my keys to the ignition lock cylinder I had replaced trying to figure out the issue (that wasn't the issue).. now im gonna take my car back to the mechanic try that housing assembly unit everyone seems to be talking about.
