My 03 Ford Focus ignition keyhole seems to be in an odd place. I have to turn my wrist down to enter the key. Never put a key in at this angle . Seem odd and a strange thing to have to do

Asked by Jul 26, 2012 at 08:16 PM about the 2003 Ford Focus

Question type: General

Are all 03 Focuses ignition keyholes at an odd angle or just mine??  Never seen a keyhole where you have to turn your wrist so far down to insert key. When car is turned on is usually where you would actually insert the key in every car I have driven in 30 years!

Check some other Focus cars in your area, without seeing a picture of yours it's hard to give you an positive answer.

I noticed this as well and it turns out this is standard. It takes a little getting used to but after a while other cars ignition positions will feel weird. If it is angled at about two o'clock and eight o'clock it is in the correct position.
