Hey there

I have a 2003 Focus Wagon, and my steering wheel is locked and because of it I can not turn my key to start the car. I have tried everything from reefing on the steering wheel while turning the key, to just simply curseing.

So I am wondering what else can be done to get this thing to start?

Any help???

Thank you

It's the other way around... you can't turn the steering wheel because your ignition lock cylinder has failed. It's a known problem, do a search here and you'll find out more information than you probably want to know, and at least one how-to on drilling the cylinder out and installing a new one.

Fortunately my car is new enough that I think it has the updated cylinder. As for yours, good luck!
