Question about Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Can't get it unlocked.

I have a 98 dodge caravan. The steering wheel is locked hard to the right. I've turned wheel slightly right and then turning key with little success. The steering wheel is locked tight. What are your suggestions to unlock it? If that doesn't work, what's the next step? Do I call a locksmith? Do I have it towed to a repair shop? All suggestions would be helpfull. Thank you

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.

2000 dodge caravan key will not turn can not start car steering wheel is locked


The tumblers in the lock cylinder are stuck and this prevents the key from turning. Spray some lubricant into the cylinder, insert the key in and out numerous times and also hit the end of the key with a rubber hammer while it is in the cylinder and this will help to release the tumblers.

1996 camry le 6 cylinder. cannot get ignition key to turn to start car. gear is in park and have tried adjusting steering wheel


Hi the steering lock could be causing you the problem try turning the steering wheel hard left whilst turning the key and do the same hard right.

it may be hard to turn but you should find once you have moved it slightly it will unlock allowing you to turn the key so dont adjust the steering wheel turn it to the right as if your trying to turn to the right and if this dont let the key turn turn the wheel to the left it only needs to move slightly to allow the steering lock to free the key,

doing the above should solve you problem

give me a shout back if you have any further problems ok

Durango steering column locked...how can I fix


Try turning the wheel slightly and turning the key, this will relieve pressure off the steering lock mechanism. If that doesn't work, try tapping the key. That is a common problem on 99-05 Caravans

Key won't turn to unlock ignition.


Push shifter hard into park, and try hard to move steering wheel slightly one way, then other while try to turn key. If that fails,have someone rock van forward & back while you try the same thing, with steering wheel.
