Hi All: I have a 2005 Escape Ltd,and occassionaly the key in the
ignition won't turn. When you put the key in and try to turn it, it's
as though the wrong key was used. After several minutes of jiggling it
and cursing, it finally gives in an turns.
I seem to recall that someone mentioned that this could be the chip
inside the key causing a "lockout". Is this possible or is it just a
crappy lock cylinder that I should make Ford replace because it's
Also, if it is an electronic probelm, that should also be looked at
Anyone here know about this problem?
