Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

I have a key in the remote I just dont know where to put the key

Are you able to get into your Focus?

by the key
Ford Mechanic: EricFromCT, Ford Technician replied 2 months ago

Ok. If you press the start button without stepping on the brake the car will go into accessory mode. Does the car do that if you push the start button? And do the electronics seem as bright as usual?

Eric my remote would not let me in my car i called a dealer he told me my key was in the remote I found it unlocked the car , but he said there was a place in the car that the key fit so I could put my break on and push botton to start my car i cant find it
Ford Mechanic: EricFromCT, Ford Technician replied 2 months ago

That is not the case. What he is referring to is in case the battery dies in the remote you can put the remote next to the round cutout on the right side of the steering column and try to start it. That is called the backup slot.

Do you happen to have the owners manual? I know which page talks about this and there is a diagram of where to hold the remote.

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.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
