SOURCE: security light stays on.

Your security system has locked itself. You will have to go to the dealer and have them reset the computer.

SOURCE: CTS_V won't start. Steering wheel locked

Typicaly the security system won't look up the steering wheel, try putting the keys back in and at the same time you try to start the car, shake the wheel back and forth. If this don't cure your problem, and you still feel that this is a security problem , you can try to reset it. The most common way that I know of to reset on a GM product is to turn the keyto the on postion and leave it there for 15 min then shut back off, due this three times, then try to start the car.

SOURCE: theft light is flashing steering wheel is locked

First thing to do is take the key and manually lock and unlock the door.
See if that fixes everything.
If the steering remains locked try pulling it hard while you try the key
Can you put the transmission in neutral
Try a different key
Try smacking the key into the lock lightly
Hopefully one of the tips will work for you

Why won't my key turn the ignition for my 2000 Dodge Stratus. The steering wheel is not locked but neither key will turn in the ignition.

Probably aftermarket alarm. Should be a small switch close to it to turn it off. If it were mine, I would remove the system .

Why won't security system let my car start

Because it's a security system, that's it's job. Check the security light, it should go out when disarmed and check the key symbol for red flashing indicating fault. Need to get a code to pin point, but you can also check to see if the steering wheel lock is working as this is a common problem for a no start.

I can't start my Toyota corolla because of what the manual calls type a security. The red security light nearest to the door is flashing and the steering wheel won't turn. I remember when I first ent

Problems with the anti-theft systems using the raised-chip key can prevent the car from starting. The wires in the steering column to the ignition lock cylinder tend to break. The the key and ignition lock cylinder must be replaced to correct this condition, needless to say, the key too.
TIP: Try Cleaning the key with petrol/kerosene & try once. It might work if ignition lock is still OK

My 2007 silverado was fine when i parked it last it wont start..plenty of battery and lights..but no ignition..and the steering wheel is not locked when in will not start in park, or...

The steering wheel will not "lock" until you turn it about 45 degrees from center...this is normal. If your security light is flashing, there is a problem with your security system that is keeping you from starting the engine. Try this: Set the parking brake. Turn the ignition to the "RUN" position and wait about 10 minutes for the security light to stop flashing. When the light stops flashing, crank the engine without turning the key to the off position. If it starts, take the vehicle to get the security system checked. If it doesn't start, tow it. You probably need a new PassKey sensor.

Security lock

Hi you need to turn the steering wheel all the way to the side the wheels are facing, it is very common on this car if you have parked with the wheels not being straight.

turn the steering wheel wiggling the wheel and jiggling the key from the lock this should free off. dont get me wrong sometimes they are really tight so be sure to push as far as you can in the direction of the wheels.

How do I change the bulb in the low beam headlight in my 2007 Mazda CX7?

Removing the bulb in a CX7 is a real PITA. If replacing the right bulb, turn the steering wheel all the way to the right, or do the opposite for the left side. (or you can opt to remove the entire wheel on the corresponding side) You'll need to remove 3-4 of the fender well clips with a phillips screwdriver being careful not to break them. Once the screws are removed, pry back the wheel well cover to access the back of the headlamp to change the bulb.
