this post diverges wildly from my usual[?] entries. if you do not own a ford focus, feel free to move on.
if, however, you DO own a ford focus, and have experienced the panic of your key getting stuck in the ignition, THIS POST IS FOR YOU. do not go to the dealer, do not go to the locksmith, do not pass go and pay anyone $200 to "fix" this. all you probably need to do is watch this video [which is not mine in any way].
"Key stuck in ignition Ford Focus 2006"
hopefully just having another searchable link out on the interwebs will help some poor googling souls out there. you're welcome.
