SOURCE: Key won't turn and steering wheel is locked

just a thought but are your front wheels turned sharply ?are the wheels up against a curb ? this sometimes puts pressure on the sterring lock and wont allow the key too turn without grabing the wheel and forcing it ? the fact that the battery went dead should not affect the ability for the key too turn unless the igntion switch melted ? not sure on your model if the switchs is behind the lock cylinder or further down the column ? try turning the whell and see if it works good luck

My Prius 2006 will not start with the remote not in the key hole.


I had the same problem with 2007 Prius.
Before doing the resetting procedure, look under the steering wheel and see if there is a "key" button. Mine had been pushed in,inadvertently during an inspection, which immobilized the "smart" operation. Simply pushing the button solved the problem.

The key isnt starting the car


Absolutely. Could also be that the smart key has a dead battery or has been compromised by moisture, etc.

Can you still lock & unlock the car with the smart key? If so, the battery is not dead, and you should look next at the ignition itself. Is there any response when you put the key in? Can you turn it? Are there signs that your battery is drained (dim/no lights work, etc)? If you are getting no response when you put the key in and you can turn it, and it still works to unlock your car and you can verify that you have battery power, start by checking your fuses. The ignition and starter fuses would be the first to check.

Battery dead, key stuck in ignition.


I have had the same problem with my daughter's car. She inadvertnetly left the key in the on position and the battery went dead. Apparently an electrical current is neded to withdraw the key. I put a battery charger on the car for several hours and everything worked fine after that.

Steering wheel is locked up and cannot turn key in ignition.


With the key in the ignition, tap on the key with something heavy like a pair of pliers, screwdriver etc. It will cause the pin inside the mechanism to drop, and the iginition will turn. Happened to me today, worked like a charm.

Just turn it then turn the key to start it. This will unlock the mechanism as long as your battery is not dead.
