Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • WORK TIME, I am here 7 days a week but not all hours of the day, do not worry I will respond.
  • FEES, I am a user of the website like you, not an employee. Any fee or account questions need to be addressed to the website.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website. I or another may take the call if you request one.
  • UPLOADED LINKS, if I upload dropbox links, without the phone app use the box on the top right for direct download.
  • RATING ANSWERS, please let me know what you need from me so you are pleased with my answer.

Anti-theft cannot prevent key turning. Anti-theft prevents the vehicle from starting by disabling the signal to the starter relay and or the fuel system. A key not able to turn means the key is worn down or the tumblers in the lock cylinder are worn down or the steering is locked. Set the parking brake and use a jack to raise both front tires off the ground then try to get the key to turn. If that too fails then the ignition cylinder must be replaced and built to match your key code.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5-star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

This is for. 2006 Ford Fusion
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 6 months ago

If the jack does not work, then it is not the steering lock to blame meaning it is the ignition cylinder or key.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
