Lock Cylinder Unable To Turn To Accessory Position – 2017-2022 Ford F-250-F-550, 2015-2020 F-150 & 2018-2022 Expedition

NHTSA ID Number: 10222789

Manufacturer Communication Number: SSM 51122


Some 2017-2022 F-250-F-550, 2015-2020 F-150 and 2018-2022 Expedition vehicles without push button start and passive entry may exhibit a condition where it is difficult to insert the ignition key and/or turn it to the accessory position when removing the ignition lock cylinder per the functional lock cylinder service procedure in Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 501-14. This may be due to debris or contamination in the ignition lock cylinder. If this concern occurs, use a suitable shop vacuum to dislodge or remove debris or contamination by placing the vacuum hose over the lock cylinder, without the key installed, for 30 seconds. Insert the ignition key and reattempt turning it to the accessory position for lock cylinder removal. If the key will not turn to the accessory position, continue with the non-functional lock cylinder removal procedure.

Lock-Ease Graphite-Based Lock Lubricant, Prevents Lock Freezing, Reduces Friction, Protects Against Rust, No Sticky Residue - 3 oz Aerosol Spray
  • Reduces friction: Graphite is a natural lubricant that helps reduce friction between the lock's internal components, making it easier to turn the key and operate the lock mechanism.
  • Prevents freezing: Graphite-based lubricants like Lock-Ease can help prevent locks from freezing in cold weather, as they don't contain water or other substances that can freeze and cause the lock to seize up.
  • Reduces wear and tear: The lubricating properties of graphite can help reduce wear and tear on lock components, potentially prolonging the life of the lock.
  • No residue buildup: Unlike some oil-based lubricants, graphite-based lubricants typically do not leave a sticky residue that can attract dust and dirt, which may eventually lead to the lock becoming difficult to operate.
  • Versatility: Lock-Ease and other graphite-based lubricants can be used on a variety of locks, including padlocks, deadbolts, and automotive locks.
