What would cause key won't turn, steering wheel locked, car in park, brake hard


It sounds like the steering lock has gone hard due to turning the wheel after key is out, turn the key and steering wheel at the same time and see if this releases the lock. Hope this helps

I have a ford focus 2003- today when I exited the car nothing was unusual..when I went to try to go to work the key will go in ignition but won't turn AT ALL. Anyone know what I can do to fix it?


your steering wheel has tension on it - are your front wheels parked against a curb or were you turning your steering wheel while you shut off the car? Try pulling hard left and turning the key. If that doesn't work, pull hard right while turning the key. You may have to pull really hard if you are a smaller person.

I replaced the power steering pump on my 2004 ford f150 and jacked the truck up in the air and with the cap off I turned the wheels back and forth to bleed. the steering is still tight is there a bleeder...


Leave the cap on the pump
Pull the injector fuse & turn motor over,
that's it.
Still tight-- then you have to check for ball joints,
or steering rack
Should be changing power steering fluid every 3 years,
as well as transmission or they both fail

Locked steering column


Place key in ignition

Turn key to on position (do not start car)

With foot on brake, and grabbing the steering wheel, pull harder while turning completely to the left holding steering whell there, start igntion, lock should release.


Hope this helps

Good Luck

1999 Ford F150 V8, 95000 miles. I have noticed, when I move slowly and either approach parking or get out of parking positon, I can hear a sound like maybe my power steering is not working properly. Truck...


if you are turning sharply the wheels are hitting the stops making a loud whirring almost squealing because the system will try to turn further but cannot due to the stops it is normal but a power steering flush would help prevent issues

My gear shift locked up


Did you leave the steering wheel turn to right or left? If so turn it to the way you left it as far as it will go then try to turn the key. Try this a few times to get it to key to turn. Also try rocking the car while turn the steering wheel and key might need another person. Cause: the park pin is ingaged and with the wheels being turned makes it hard to unlock steering colum.
