2003 Ford Focus SE Remote Start

Asked by Dec 28, 2015 at 01:17 PM about the 2003 Ford Focus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a ford focus and when i push the electric start button on my key fob.
The dash lights turn on and the fuel pump kicks in, but the start does not kick
in. When i insert the key into the ignition (Off Position), and i push the remote
start button, the car starts. Any idea why it does that? How can i fix it?

You likely have an ignition switch not fully seating in the off position. This can be caused by the cylinder, tube on the column, or the electrical switch itself. It has to be taken apart to see which of those is not doing its job properly.
