SOURCE: Have a 92 SVX. The tilt steering wheel will only

There are 2 adjusters on the steering column, One on the left side that tilts the wheel up to make it easier to get in and out, and one on the bottom to adjust for comfort.

SOURCE: Tilt Steering Wheel lever appears broken - locked

This is a simple mechanical issue (no electronics involved).

Remove the plastic housing from around the steering column and ignition area. It is held with screws from under the column area. There are two screws from the top that you may need a short screwdriver to reach. Some are phillips and some are hex head. Just take your time it will come.

Once open you will see interlocking teeth or "gears" on the top of the column. One in mounted to the column the other engages into the tilt release teeth. This is the tilt mechanism. The top lever is lifted up by the adjusting lever. When the teeth are disengaged the wheel can be moved up and down.

Look to see the linkage is intact from the lever to the top gear. Pull the adjusting lever to see it is working and trying to lift the top gear up.

It can stick. Use WD40 if struck. Try shaking the steering wheel up and down while operating the adjusting lever (right side of column behind the turn signal lever).

Still struck? Use a screwdriver to lift the gears apart. The wheel will tilt easily now. Move to the desired position and engage the gears again. It will now be locked in the position you want.

It sounds complex but it is not. Just take your time and it will be obvious.

Note that while working you should have the negative cable removed from the battery. You do not want to trigger the air bag or damage the electronics. With the negative cable removed you will not have a problem.

SOURCE: steering wheel moves down and to the left it is

Sounds like a pivot point backed out. Take it apart and inspect. Something will be obvious, likely on the right side.

SOURCE: My tilt steering is locked in the UP position.

I am sure that you have already explained this. But I can't see anything that has been posted so far other than the original problem. Is the lever that locks the steering wheel broke off or is it something inside the steering column? Or can you tell?

I can't get the rod that connects the key lock and door latch in the right position to work correctly.


  • Disconnect the negative battery cable with the proper size wrench and place away from the battery.

    Insert the key into the ignition lock cylinder and turn the key to the run position.
  • 2 Remove the steering column cover on a tilt steering wheel model by pressing the upper and lower section of the cover together and pulling free from the mounting plate. Remove the steering column covers on a non tilt steering wheel model by using a Philips screwdriver and unscrewing the mounting screws.
  • 3 Disconnect the electrical connector from the ignition switch by lifting up on the release tab and pulling.

    Press the ignition switch actuator pin by pushing a small screw driver into the key lock cylinder, while doing this pull the ignition switch out of the ignition switch housing.
  • Installation
  • 1 Insert the new key into the new ignition switch and turn the key to the run position. Insert the new ignition switch into the ignition switch housing. Wiggle the switch back and forth until the actuator pin mounting hole is aligned and falls into place.
  • 2 Install the electrical connector back into the connector housing by pressing it in with your hands.
  • 3 Place the steering column covers back onto the non tilt steering wheel and insert mounting screws. Tighten screws using a Philips screwdriver. Place the steering column covers over the tilt steering wheel and press the upper and lower portion together to snap covers back into the mounting plate.
  • 4 Pull on the ignition key to ensure switch is locked into place. Turn key to the "off" position and remove the key. Insert the key and start the vehicle.

    How do i remove the steering column cover to get at the ignition tumbler on a 1993 dodge dakota


    CAUTION Disconnect and isolate the negative (ground) battery cable. This will disable the air bag system. Failure to disconnect the battery could result in accidental deployment and possible personal injury. Allow the system capacitor to discharge for two minutes then begin air bag system component removal. To install:
    1. Engage the electrical connectors to the ignition switch and make sure the switch locking tabs are fully seated.
    2. Before attaching the ignition switch to a tilt steering column, the transmission shifter must be in the PARK position. Also the park lock dowel pin and the column lock flag must be properly indexed before installing the switch as follows:
      1. Place the transmission shifter in the PARK position
      2. Place the ignition switch in the LOCK position. The switch is in the lock position when the column lock flag is parallel to the ignition switch terminals.
      3. Position the ignition switch park lock dowel pin so it will engage the steering column park lock slider linkage.
      4. Apply a light coating of grease to the column lock flag and the park lock dowel pin.
    3. Place the ignition switch against the lock housing opening on the steering column. Ensure that the ignition switch park lock dowel pin enters the slot in the park lock slider linkage in the steering column.
    4. Install the retaining bracket and ignition switch mounting screws, then tighten the screws to 22-30 inch lbs. (3-4 Nm).
    5. If the vehicle is equipped with a tilt steering column, install the tilt lever.
    6. With the key cylinder and the ignition switch in the LOCK position, insert the key cylinder into the ignition switch until it bottoms.
    7. Insert the ignition key into the lock cylinder. While pushing the key cylinder in toward the ignition switch, rotate the ignition key until the end of travel.
    8. Install the retaining screw into the bracket and lock cylinder. Tighten the screw to 22-30 inch lbs. (3-4 Nm).
    9. Install the steering column covers, then the tilt lever, if equipped.
    10. Connect the negative battery cable.
    11. Check for proper operation.
