Replaced power steering pump&all lines and car steers harder now also the fluid level doesnt move off cold reading


When replacing the pump and lines did you bleed the system? Jack the front of the car up lifting both front wheels off of the ground. With the car off turn the steering wheel lock to lock 8 or 10 times. Then start the engine and repeat the process except turn the steering wheel lock to lock 25 to 30 times. That should help.

When I put the key in and hold the steering wheel it won't unlock and my key won't turn


the steering wheel has a locking devise released by the key when starting, at times the wheel is turned in a way that keeps pressure on the lock that makes turning the key harder, this is the same in most cars, so a little jiggle of the wheel will make turning the key much easier, please take a moment to rate my reply Good Luck

Key wont turn in ignition, steering column not locked?


You said the steering column is not locked, so I assume you have tried turning the steering wheel from side to side while you try to turn the key. Have you tried pulling the key out very slightly, or pushing it in harder?

Ignition and steering wheel on 1996 Corsica are locked.


Your key or the lock cylinder may be overly worn, to the extent that the key no longer moves the pins to the correct positions to allow the cylinder to rotate.

Assuming that the lock cylinder hasn't been progressively getting more difficult to turn, you may be able to aggressively rotate the steering wheel against the lock back and forth while attempting to rotate the key to disengage a frozen steering lock.

2001 mb clk 320, my ignition switch will not turn. screen tells me to remove key, but tires wont lock when key is removed(steering columb wont lock).


Hi there
I had something similar on my merc
but yours sounds similar.
the fact that you say the steering lock no longer works is very worrying, most times the key not going past position 1 is due to the steering lock being actuated and the pressure in it has to be released before the key will turn, you will have to go from lock to lock the find where the steering lock actuates when this happens follow my wiggle method of turning the steering wheel slightly when the steering lock is on the disengage it. ie keep trying the key whilst wiggeling the steering wheel.
hope that helps

Cannot turn the key past position 1 in the steering lock


Hi there
Could be simple.
Try this. the steering wheel should turn ever so slightly to one direction if so turn the steering wheel that way and then try the key, start gently and build up on the wiggle force.
It should just be the steering lock working/not working
