ford fusion key stuck in ignition
2006 Ford Fusion
In January 07 same key was stuck in ignition, they replaced the shifter, or gear box.
3 weeks now the key is stuck again...Im over my miles/warranty. Now they say it's the cylinder, costs 500 to fix. Any advice here? I'm on a tight budget with kids starting school and my car is their transportation.
I do not think its the cylinder --I think its the shifter again --- so this would be a service install part and coast you nothing, if you are under 12k and 12 months since the last repaire ---to prove this pop off the chrome ring around the shifter ( number 1 in the pic ),, then pull up on the bezel around the shifter by the cup holder ( number 2 in the pic )----now look on the pass side of the shifter, between the shift and the console ,, down low--you will see a blue switch ,,,just under this blue switch is a gray tab , stick your finger down there or something and lift up on the gray tab so it pushes on the blue switch -----and the key should come out on the cylinder-----now you have just proved that the shifter is bad again and it has to be replaced --all ford parts and labor are warrantied for 12 months 12 k miles
