My steering wheel in my 2008 Ford Fusion SE has been locking up when I'm driving. The Ford place said that that year model does not have a steering wheel lock. Is this correct?


I don't know for a fact but this seems very odd to me that your vehicle would not have a steering wheel lock. Further, it is more odd that the wheel would lock unexpectedly while driving. Obviously, you cannot drive it in this condition. I recommend you take the car to the Ford Dealer and have them repair it even if it means replacing the steering column. You certainly don't want the thing locking up while you are driving ... all sorts of terrible pictures come to my mind ... running into oncoming traffic ... off the right hand side of the road ... off the bridge into the valley below ... into a group of chldren waiting for the bus ...

Please get this fixed as soon as you can.

My 1998 Dodge Caravan key will not turn over steering wheel is locked as well as brakes..how can i unlock it to be able to put in neutral???


if the steering wheel is turn all the way one way and locked by the steering wheel lock then you will have to turn the steering wheel more and try turning the key.sometimes when the steering wheel is turned all the way one way and locked the pressure that is against the lock will sometimes not allow the key to turn.if the wheel is in the straight ahead position it may be the ignition key lock is worn and needs replacing.

Instructions and diagrams for replacing the ignition lock cylinder actuator


You need to remove all the cowling on the steering column around the lock. Check if there are any bolts or screws securing the lock into its holder and remove these. Ensure that the steering lock is not engaged or clamped by the steering column and put the correct key in the lock. In the ACC position, (or it might be another position) you should be able to depress a pin or tongue in the lock cylinder and this should allow you to extract it from the housing. Unplug the switch from the bottom of the lock cylinder and the job is done.

My bmw 318 steering wheel is locked


common problem and will probably nessesitate replacing ignition switch barrel and steering lock, you will have to remove upper and lower steering covers and lower steering column to lowest position to allow you access to the two shear bolts which hold the steering lock assembly to the steering column, your local bmw agent shoul be able to get you the parts to allow you to use your own keys.

1992 cavalier ignition switch and key assembly


The following procedure is "generic" for replacing the lock cylinder. There are a couple of specialized tools you will need and saftey precautions concerning the air bag system.
Take a look and let me know if you wish to tackle the job.
Regards,
To remove the ignition lock:
CAUTION You must remove the steering wheel when replacing the ignition lock. On vehicles with a Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system, you must temporarily disable the SIR system and remove the inflator module when removing the steering wheel. Leaving the SIR system on could result in deployment of the air bag and possible personal injury.

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable, and remove the steering wheel.
  • Remove the bumper and the carrier snapring retainer from the steering shaft.
  • Use a lock plate compressor screw tool to install the lock plate compressor screw in the upper steering shaft. To keep the shaft from telescoping, tighten it to 40 inch lbs.
  • Using the lock plate compressor tool, install on the upper steering shaft, tighten it to depress the shaft lock. Remove the shaft lock retainer, the compressor tool and the steering shaft lock.
  • Remove the turn signal canceling cam assembly. Put the turn signal switch in the "N" position and remove the upper bearing spring.
  • Position the turn signal switch so the mounting screws can be removed through the holes in the switch and remove the turn signal lever.
  • Remove the turn signal switch-to-steering column screws and lift the turn signal switch. Remove the wire protector and disconnect the turn signal switch connector.
  • Use a terminal remover tool to disconnect the buzzer switch wires from the turn signal switch connector. Remove the buzzer switch assembly with needle-nose pliers.
  • Place the lock cylinder in the ACC position, then remove the lock retaining screw and the lock cylinder set.
  • To install the new cylinder lock, reverse the removal procedures.
  • Tighten the lock retaining screw to 22 inch lbs., the turn signal switch screws to 59 inch lbs. and turn the turn signal lever screw to 53 inch lbs.
  • As part of the final replacement procedures, check the operation of the switches and the steering column.
