    I place the key in the ignition and can't turn it to the start position.  I turn the steering wheel both to the left and to the right to unlock the wheel and no luck.

You'll need to have it diagnosed. Without actually looking at it myself, there are numerous possible causes and to take you through each one would take days.

I have a 2007 Hyundai Sonata...my steering wheel will not lock after turning off the ignition...however..the ignition is not stuck and I am able to insert my key and start the ignition


I have noticed this problem on various different vehicles...after you turn the car off and pull the key out, physically force the wheel to the right or left really hard...the wheel will lock. It just happens to not be in the correct position for the locking mechanism to engage where you last left the steering wheel...to experiment with this, try turning it back on, and turning the wheel just slightly to one side or the next and repeat until you find the "spot" that it engages easily...hope that helped

It's not "normal" - it's an ian ignition key lock freeze-up as a known issue; I finally had to get the entire assembly replaced on my Hyundai 2007 Sonata. It happened to me about 8 times and had to have the car towed 2xs....finally relaced it under the 100k warranty to get it fixed = it's covered. Take it into Service and have them fix it.

Try holding your steering wheel hard to the left as you try to turn the key. If this doesnt work try holding it to the right doing the same thing. Something happened to where the steering wheel lock engaged and that will prevent you from using the ignition key. Try this
