Hi, I have been searching the web for a VERY long time to try and sort this problem!

I have the keyless entry system to my 2006 focus without the button start. There is just a turny thing were the key should normally go in the ignition.

However, when I start the engine it normally takes three or four attempts for the key to be recognised? Is this a normal problem or is my technique in starting the car all wrong? The on board computer says I must push in the clutch and then turn the ignition, yet sometimes il get nothing, just lights on the dash. Could it be the key thats the problem or the car?

PLEASE someone help!!!!
