Why can't I unlock my ignition and start my car?


Put one hand on the steering wheel and rotate slightly left and right alternatively whilst turning the ignition key at the same time with the other hand. This might release the steering wheel and start ignition.

Hope this helps.

My lock went out on my steering wheel


went out?
the ignition key and steering lock are all in one place (part)
if the steering wheel wont unlock the operators guide shows what to do.
you wiggle the steering, as you wiggle the key to unlock.
if tires are against the carb, this can be very hard to do.
ask hubby to do that. (yank wheel hard )

I have a 1996 vw passat glx sedan and it seems as though the steering wheel is locked it won't turn at all the key won't turn in the ignition and it seems like the gears have locked too it won't let me...


This happens to most power-steering cars when you park your car and the wheels are not pointed straight ahead. When you turn off the car the centering device in the car steering locks hard against steering wheel lock. You have to pull the wheel hard in one direction or the other while attempting to unlock the steering.

Steering wheel locked, cannot turn key to start, jiggling steering wheel not effective. turned battery on and off, inserted wd40, nothing works. help!!!


Try holding your steering wheel hard to the left as you try to turn the key. If this doesnt work try holding it to the right doing the same thing. Something happened to where the steering wheel lock engaged and that will prevent you from using the ignition key. Try this

Key won't turn in the ignition and the steering wheel is locked


In hope that you have the right key, put him in, try to turn the steering wheel a little bit at the same time you try to unlock the ignition.Sometimes it's possible that you've used your steering wheel as help wile getting out of the car. At this case, maybe the wheel lock snaps in, but the wheels are under pressure from the ground. Now you want to unlock your car at it seams that the key wont turn. The wheels get pressure from the ground, so the whole steering is under pressure and your steering wheel pressed against the locker block. If you try to turn the locked steering wheel, you'll see that it turns appr. 1" to one side. This is the needed space to unlock with the key. I hope that works in your case.

Automatic engine immobilizer wo'nt reset


The immobilizer does not "lock" the ignition, it does not energize the fuel injection relay. What you have is a "locked" steering column. Put the key in the ignition, and pull/turn the steering wheel HARD left or right, whilst turning the key to on or start. Do BOTH at the same time.The action of you pulling on the steering wheel will unlock the steering column.
