Question about 1998 Subaru Forester
The tachometer went to zero but the motor was still running. I had to forcefully turn the wheel to get the car to the side of the road.
I agree with the other Expert, but the steering wheel lockup is puzzling. Do you mean it did not turn or was hard to turn?
Now if the steering wheel locked in its Parked position, then the Ignition switch had to allow it. It would be consistent with losing the electric feed to the motor and things the other Expert said. Your Ignition switch may have turned itself off. Sometimes too much weight on a keychain is enough.
If the car will start, it may be okay. But the inside of your Ignition may be coming apart or your Keychip is cutting out. You might want to change Ignition switches.

Thumping noises and vibrations can be something as simple as a tread separation(or a big bubble) on one of your tires.As for the one wheel turning---that's perfectly normal.If you grab the wheel that's turning (not really recommended) and stop it completely,the other wheel will spin.
