Question about 1998 Plymouth Neon
Steering wheel is not locked and car is set up to only start when steering wheel is in locked position. Have tried turning wheel left and right but still will not lock. Can not get key to turn. The steering column has been locking up over the past several months. Usually if I turn the wheel slightly in the same direction as the front tires are pointing, it will unlock. It might take 5 to 10 tries. Today this trick is not working at all - could the minus 13 degree weather also effect this? Former owner did not have this problem. Is there a DIY way to get this fixed? I never had a car that did this before and I really don't see the benefit of this feature. Thanks for any help you can give!
Neons are a real pain in the rear,,the part you are talking about is the neutral safety steering lock switch, you can disengage it from under the dash along the steering column,, but it is difficult,,,and you would also have to be able to turn your key to the start position anyway wouldnt you??
