The steering wheel lock pin is probably not falling into place. Try some lock lubricant and jiggle the wheel back and forth a little bit. If that does not do it, you will have to take out the lock tumbler and free-up / lubricate the steering column lock pin mechanism.

Ignition locked on a 2000 Dodge intrepid


If you any other spare key, try with that key and see if it turns the ignition to unlock position.Try to turn the steering wheel to left and key to right side and try turning key to left an steering wheel to right side, try both ways and see if the key unlocks ignition.If that is not helping then try to wiggle the steering wheel and then insert key to unlock ignition.If that is also not helping then get wd-40 spray and spray the lubricant into key hole, and then let the spray remain there for few minutes then insert key in the key hole and see if it unlocks the ignition.------ If not then its problem with tumblers in the ignition switch, it has to be checked.For that ignition switch has to be removed and inspected.If ignition switch is inspected ok, then ignition key lock cylinder is faulty, it has to be replaced.Once the ignition switch is removed, the key lock cylinder can be accessed.----------- Getting this troubleshooting tried and this possibilities checked will help, thanks.Helpmech.

1997 GMC Sierra the steering wheel is locked


If you remove the air bag you must disconnect the battery first and wait 5 miunts to work on it. if the tumbler is damaged you will need to remove the horn button then the or the air bag then remove 3 screws that hold the horn assembly then remove the steering wheel nut then you will have to rent a steering wheel puller pull the steering wheel off then you can get to the tumbeler assembly, one there remove one screw that holds key lock assembly in place then with a flat tip screw driver see if you can turn the slot in the stering wheel, if you can turn it then there is a problem with the tumbler assembly and you can by one at any auto parts store with 2 keys for about $15.00 if it still will not turn then the two nuts that hold the steering whel on will have to be dropped then the steering wheel will have to be lowerered and the clip for the gear shift string has to be removed then drop the steering wheel down and look at the rod tthat operates the key switch. Is the rod bent? straighten it and try turning it again, does it turn? if yes you found the problem if not you can luberacate the switch on the steering wheel and see if you can get it to free up once it does put it back together like you took it apart, if it won't turn you will have to replace the strat switch on the steering cloumbe. if you need help just reply to this answer and I will get back to you thanks for using fix-ya.

How do I remove the steering wheel from a 1997 Chevy blazer?



Hi,

If you are trying to remove the steering wheel to change the ignition switch, then you may not have to. The switch is on the steering column about 1/2 down towards the floor, and has a rod that runs from the key cylinder & locking part. You dont need to remove the steering wheel, but if you do so, I suggest you to take some help from some Paint and Body shop so that they can direct you to do it properly and safely.

Do let me know if it helped.

The key want turn to start the car


exactly! The cylinder lock gets activated when the key is turned back for removal it releases a pin which will actually lock the steering wheel. Exactly opposite when inserted, First it has to release the steering lock otherwise the key simply wont turn. So it must have got stuck in lock position . Try jostling the wheel and rotate the key towards ignition position. If you hear a small click, that's the release of that pin and the wheel becomes free and the key can also be turned. This assembly must have got jammed or broken altogether and you might have to change the entire keylock..........sodeep

A4 steering lock does not engage and car won't turn over


The steering locks don't necessarily engage when the key is removed, I always turn the wheel before exiting to engage it. There are several positions that will allow the pin to lock in but if between these, it may seem that it isn't locked.
