You have not said whether the key will turn in the ignition. If it does not,
this is a common fault in early production Focuses. You will need a dealer
or locksmith to fix, since it requires a new lock cylinder that must be set
for your keys.

When mine did that I had to have a new ignition installed. It cost about
$175. It's a common problem but Ford hasn't had a recall on it.
