Asked by for the 2005 Ford Focus
Check the transmission range selector. The signal from the ignition goes through the range selector and won't allow the vehicle to crank over unless the selector is in park or neutral. The selector may be faulty or miss-adjusted. Try moving the gear shift while trying to crank the engine.
