Re: Key Stuck in Ignition
This was a bit of a concern on earlier Escorts (european models). A friend of mine at the time owned one and he took the key OUT while we were driving along LOL. Not nice.
I'd have the lockset looked at. I can't see it being an electronic problem, more mechanical. Depending on what you think a fortune is, it shouldn't cost more than $20 for someone to diagnose it as a lock problem, in which case a new key cylinder would have to be located (salvage yard perhaps) and you'd have to get new keys machined.
