Lucky me...

I have never had any problems with my 2004 right up till today as I approach 170,000 miles. Went to the gas station 1.5 miles away, put in gas, put the key in and it wouldn't turn at all. So it took 15 years and 170,000 miles to get hit by a common problem I thought I got a lucky pass on.

Sitting in the gas station blocking two sets of pumps for an hour was no fun. Wheels fortunately straight and a manual so had it towed home and rolled into place. Now to gather all the information on the issue. So far it will NOT turn but I haven't messed with it by any kind of tapping.

Probably in the wrong section now that I look.

2004 Focus ZTS 2.3/2018 Mazda 3
1998 Mercury Sable/1991 Mazda 626
1968 Mercury Cougar/1968 Ford Mustang
1967 Mercury Park Lane/1973 Dodge Polara
1965 Ford F-100 Custom Cab/2004 Buick Le Sabre
