Are your front wheels turned all the way to one side or the other? Does your ignition key not turn from the locked position ? If the answer to these questions is Yes, try turning the steering wheel in the same direction that the front wheels are turned, and try turning the ignition key at the same time. If that's not the problem, post back and we'll try other possibilities.

Where is the hole on the lock cylinder that allows the key to turn when pushing on it?


have you tried to turn the steering wheel and then turn the key? when the steering wheel is locked it will not let the key turn, try turning the steering wheel to the right and then turning the key. Sometimes when getting out of the car your leg turns the steering wheel and locks it.

Key ignition wont turn


APPLY BRAKE AND MAKE SURE STEERING WHEEL IS CENTERED. IF IT IS PARKED SO THERE IS PRESSURE ON THE FRONT WHEELS AND HOLDING THE STEERING WHEEL HARD RIGHT OR LEFT IT WILL MAKE THE KEY VERY HARD TO TURN.

Key will not turn over the car everything including the steering wheel is locked up


Try wiggling the steering wheel when you turn the key. Sometimes there's a steering lock. Also, make sure the car is in Park. Could be the lock cylinder, or the wheel lock jamming.

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.

Cannot get key to turn in jeep. Have already driven it numerous times today, suddenly can't move steering wheel or gear shift and key will not turn. Help!


Try turning the steering wheel (hard) right and left while turning the key. Steering lock , and ignition lock work in conjunction with each other.

Play in the steering wheel column after position adjustment


When they did the alignment it's possible that they used a tool that locks the steering wheel straight while it's on the alignment rack.If they put too much pressure on the wheel when they used the steering wheel seat lock tool it may have stressed you tilt lock mech causing it not to lock where you want it.Hope this helps

Steering wheel locks up when parked


Although the car is not in front of me, it sounds like when you park ( is this parallel parking ? ) your steering wheel is turned hard to the left or right, which creates extreme pressure on the steering wheel lock. In order to help overcome this problem, you must "armstrong" the steering wheel in the same direction the front wheels are turned. Locking up on the freeway with this same issue. Highly unlikely.
