So, I changed my girlfriend's focus battery out and now she has informed me that the car doesn't crank instantly. I tried this several times and it does not crank immediately. You turn the key, hold it for about 3-4 seconds and then it starts to crank and starts.

I personally wouldn't care much if it were me, but then it got me thinking that this could potentially be an issue. Is anyone aware of a problem that causes this? I originally just assumed it was taking a couple seconds to go through the start up procedure. Any input from the professional focus drivers?

There is a known problem on the 2008 with the ignition switch.

Does wiggling the key make it start...if so, it is the ignition switch.
