Steering wheel stuck and key wont turn


One of the things is a lock-out switch on the brake pedal lever. Some are coordinated with the gearshift, the Keyswitch, and the starter Relay. Check to see if the brake lights work when you press on the brake pedal. If no signal is going to the brake lights, then there is a chance that the Park shift lever, the steering wheel and the Keyswitch are bound up.

Sometimes a steering wheel is at the extreme reach of the travel in the front suspension. This can sometimes happen in cold weather when the car is sitting on ice or snow. When the ice or snow melts, the front tires settle into a position that puts pressure on the steering wheel and loads Torque up the steering column. Another possibility is that the car was bumped in the Parking lot and jammed into a position creating Torque on the steering column.

Last, the tumbler inside the Keyswitch could have fallen apart and that is why the mechanism is not releasing the steering wheel.

There are adjustments in the Keyswitch to be at the correct position to work with the lockout at the bottom of the steering column.

Underneith the steering column,ther are two /four bolts you have to remove to drop steering column.Block wheels and use emergency brake.If there is an indicator for park ,nutral and so on,then don't brake the cable going to that.It is clipped on the column housing that moves with the gear shift,push it off,then lower the column.

Back brake light stay on, replaced brake switch same problem.Truck has over drive and cruies control If you take switch out of circuit the brake lights stay on the same with the turn/hazard flasher.


Your brake lights and your turn signals go through the multifunction (turn signal) switch. It is common for these switches to short internally. Partial disassembly of the steering column is required to replace it. The airbag stsyem must be disabled, then the airbag removed from the steering wheel. Then the steering wheel must be removed to access the screw in the front of the switch assembly. The rest is pretty easy... a few screws holing the lower cover of the dash, the shroud around the steering column and a few connectors to deal with. (see pictures of switch assembly below)
There are two types of these switches available for 2000 S-10. With cruise control and without cruise control. The one WITHOUT cruise control is much more expensive!

Isuzu 3.0 TD 2005 - Steering wheel makes squeking sound when turning steering wheel to both sides. Quiet on strait roads. Sounds like plastic rubbing when turning steering wheel. Sprayed lubricant on...


Disconnect steering column down by brake pedals and turn wheel with steering disconnected.....if squeak is still there its in the upper steering column bearings...squirt silicon spray down the top tube [below the steering wheel] until it runs out thru the tube lower bearing.
P.S dont forget to reconnect the steering!!!

Passanger side brake light issue


Yes! It is a faulty turn signal assembly. You can try actuating the hazards several times, to try cleaning the contacts but if there is no change then replace it. In case you want to know, the wires from the brake switch, go up into the turn-signal assembly then out to the tail-lights. To fix it, disconnect the battery, you will need some tools. A steering wheel puller, a steering shaft compression tool, 1/2" drive ratchet, metric sockets, cir-clip pliers, a couple of small picks, #2 philips head screwdriver, and some torque-head screwdrivers. carefully pull off the horn cover( may have a couple of scews holding it from the other side), unplug the horn wire (push and twist), remove the cir-clip, remove the nut, mark the area where the steering wheel and shaft meet (use white-out), press off the steering wheel, Compess the shaft, remove the retaining clip(with the picks), remove horn spinner base, remove turn-signal assembly. I need to step back alittle bit, the plug, to the turn-signal, is half-way down the steering column, to unplug it you need to remove the lower dash panel, the bolts holding the column up inplace. The plug is in clear sight but the wiring harness is inside a plastic sheath, you'll see what I'm talking about.

1992 Buick Lasabre Right Brake Light


Just a thought, but I figure with an electrical nightmare, you need as many posibilities as you can get. There is a switch behind your brake pedal. when you step on the brake, it contacts a button on the switch, which allows power to get to your brake lights. Maybe one of the wires coming from the switch is catching the steering column mechanisms. I hate electrical stuff. So, I wish you the best of luck. I sincerely hope that I could be of some help.

Steering clunk


The clunk as you describe could be one of three problems, the steering lower column, the steering gearbox or the constan velocity joints.
The lower steering coloumn viewable from the engine bay below the brake unit has a rubber coupler which breaks and can cause the column to lock up, the steering gearbox which the column mounts to can also fail inside, fiunally the c.v. joints break and will cause intermittant binding of the steering, you need to goto a car park and drive the vehicle full lock left and right and have someone listen for the clunk, if it is coming from the wheel area then its the cv joints.
I would start there, hope this helps

Brake light don't light unless steering wheel is all the way up


Check the turn signal switch. The brake lights run power through the turn signal switch. If the switch is bad or the connections are bad it will cause your problem.
