Faulty Steering?
It was not until later in the day as I check the Internet for "hyundai i10" "steering locking" that I started to worry once again. I found reviews and comments mentioning that the i10 had problems with its power steering system which sometimes caused locking while the car was in motion! This post about hyundai i10 steering locking is what really caused me to get worried again. I still puzzled a bit and not sure if that was the same case as mine as in my case the locking took place while the car was at a stand still and turned off. I'll try to follow up on this carefully to see where it goes. Perhaps I should mention this issue to the agency as they service my car after the first 1000 miles (or first month of driving it).
Update: After describing the problem on an Arabic cars forum I learned that nothing was wrong with my i10. The steering locking was normal since I tried to move the steering too much while the car was turned off. As for the key not turning in with ease, the reason was that I must have moved the steering slightly after inserting the key and before turning the key. This is the method used for turning the key whenever the steering has locked. Man, I just love those forums and i LOVE the Internet.

SOURCE: Unlocking the steering wheel

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.

SOURCE: steering wheel locked, cannot turn key to start,

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

SOURCE: steering wheel vibration whe I rotate it??????

The vibration and rubbing may be separate issues. There could be many causes for vibration, ranging from low fluid, sticky rack valves, etc., to the tires simply grapping and releasing on the pavement. If it only does it under heavy use, such as when standing still and turning alot, then I suggest not doing that. It is hard on a car to turn the steering wheel when the car is not moving.

1998 Ford Escort steering wheel lock will not unlock. Seems jammed.


The steering wheel was turned when the key was removed. So when you try to turn on the key, turn the wheel one way and the other way to release the pressure on the key. The key should turn ok.
Hope this helps.

Try rotating the steering wheel in both directions while applying rotational force on the key.

I have had this problem on a F150 where the person pulled in their driveway and proceeded to turn the car off but turned the wheel while the powersteering was still on, when the engine stopped the steering wheel rotated and locked from the force of the truck.

Hope this helps!

Ignition and steering wheel on 1996 Corsica are locked.


Your key or the lock cylinder may be overly worn, to the extent that the key no longer moves the pins to the correct positions to allow the cylinder to rotate.

Assuming that the lock cylinder hasn't been progressively getting more difficult to turn, you may be able to aggressively rotate the steering wheel against the lock back and forth while attempting to rotate the key to disengage a frozen steering lock.

Play in the steering wheel column after position adjustment


When they did the alignment it's possible that they used a tool that locks the steering wheel straight while it's on the alignment rack.If they put too much pressure on the wheel when they used the steering wheel seat lock tool it may have stressed you tilt lock mech causing it not to lock where you want it.Hope this helps

2001 ford focus steering is lock, how to unlock it? this is the third time it happened.is this serious?


When you try to start the car does the key seem stuck, not turning? Occasionally I have to turn the steering wheel just a little before the key will turn. Always try to straighten your front wheels when you park before turning off the car, this puts less strain on the locking part of the steering wheel and makes it easier to start the car next time. The serious part of a steering wheel is the air bag, do not try to disassemble the steering wheel yourself, you may want to take it to a mechanic you trust in case an interior part of your steering wheel needs replacing.

That's my guess.

How do i get the track rod end off my hyundai accent 1998


Unbolt the nyloc nut holding the track rod end to the front wheel hub.Just before the nut is completely off hit the nut down over to free the tapered spindle from the hub. Alternately use a ball jiont splitter.(these tend to split the rubber boot on the track rod end). Then using two pairs of vice grips , put one on the track rod and one on the lock nut on your steering rack. A little heat would help here. Free the locknut the immediately unscrew the track rod end.Lock off the steering rack arm while you do this. It will rotate unless you do this.remove the track rod end. Replace all parts after boot replacement. you will need to excerpt upward pressure on the track rod end when refitting it to the hub. Take care not to wind the track rod end locknut too far as this will effect the wheel alignment. Good Luck
