Ignition Module problem #8
The vehicle involved was a 2000 Ford Focus. I have a 2000 Ford Focus lx. The ignition cylinder "fell" or broke or whatever it is called. The net effect is that the key would not go into the ignition and had to be towed to the dealer. It was replaced under warranty on Jan 17, 2002. 19500 miles approximately. The next time the ignition switch failed was December 4, 2002. Same symptoms and the ignition switch was replaced again. Again under warranty. Approximately 33394 miles. Now again November 5, 2003 the key is having trouble sliding in and out again. I'm sure I'll be up for another ignition switch replacement and re-keying soon. I really feel Ford needs to fix this problem and then recall so that we can had reliable ignition switches. Thanks carol. This ignition module problem happened on 01/17/02.

The vehicle involved is a 2000 Ford Focus. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 1FAFP3430Y_. The complete ignition module requires replacement on my car. I was told by a Ford motor CO customer service representative that this particular problem is wide spread and would probably be covered by the company. I was told today that although there are quite a number of incidents with this particular part it is not yet a recall and therefore we must pay approximately $400 to repair it. I do not feel this is fair. I was also told that even though we have an extended warranty it is not the correct level of coverage and would also not be covered. This ignition module problem happened on Monday, March 15, 2004.

Ignition Module problem #12
I purchase my 2000 Ford Focus lx on September of 2000. Since then ive had nothing but problems with this vehicle. I drove it for 10,000 mile and the ignition cylinder locked up and left me stranded. This also requird a new set of keys because the ignition cylinder strips them. I also had to replace brakes and tires 4 times in 3 years. The fuel pumped failed 3 times now also. I was at work yesterday and the car once again had a locked igniton cylinder. Luckily for me the car is out of warranty. I had to get another set of keys made a year ago because they got stripped(again). I would not have a problem with this but they are 120 dollars for 2. But going back to yesterday, I recieved a phone call from the dealership saying that it will cost 500 dollars to fix the ignition cylinder. What is going on here when I can't find one person who as ever had to replace this part on their vehicle? I have a problem believing that Ford can make something so defective!. This issue happened on 06/15/04.
