Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).
Sometimes the steering becomes locked with so much resistance on it, that you have to raise both front wheels off the ground to relieve the tension so you can turn the key. If that also fails to work then its the ridges on the key worn down or the ignition lock cylinder tumblers faulty. Try your spare key, if it too fails then you will need to have the cylinder drilled out so a new one can be installed that is built to match your coded keys.
