my 02 focus just stopped working---you can turn the key foward and all the lights come on but nothing happens at all-i just all the fuses and relays they all are good--i tested the starter--it was good replaced the battery-----i think somehow the anti theft alarm thing was triggered and now the car wont do anything any help ---any help would be helpful.

Is there any workaround for this? Can I deactivate the alarm system?

Thanks!

"i think somehow the anti theft alarm thing was triggered"

Why do you think this?

Automatic or Manual tranmission? It could very well be the interlock switch that prevents the car from being started without the clutch down (manual), or the transmission in Park (automatic).

I'm going to bet on the interlock switch too, although it could be the ignition switch itself has gone bad.

Yea I had another car that had a similar problem. Try puting it in neutral at starting it.

Also, do you get the acc items to work, like the stereo, lights etc. But absolutely no turn?
