It is better to buy a new ignition barrel.it takes a special socket to get the screws out, once the screws are out they do not need to be replaced.buy new barrel,disconnect negative battery cable,disconnect wires from barrel assembly, remove barrel from colum. first take vin# to dealership parts department to get correct barrel assembly, the keys with new assembly will fit doors and trunk

The steering wheel is locked because the ignition is also locked, the ignition is broken so I have alternate way of starting car, how do I unlock it without turning the ignition


Most ignition switches are in the same barrel as the locking mechanism so you would need to remove the ignition off the steering column in order to release the lock.usually gain access by removing cowling that surrounds internal steering column.bear in mind some locks on certain models need to remain in situ as they have micro switch to immobilize ignition once off the column.if you replace lock make sure you get the keys that go with it.even then you may have to get auto locksmith to program ecu to accept new lock and code.

KEY WONT TURN IN IGNITION


OK, obvious first: turn it the other way. Don't laugh, I've done this.

Otherwise, barrel is jammed. Get a new barrel, dismantle the steering column and replace the existing one. You'll now need two keys: one to unlock the car and one for the ignition. You won't be the first.

My ignition will not turn, the steering is locked also. I had a previous problem where when you put the key in the car would not crank, turn over or anything. Then after a while it would just crank up.


The previous problem sounds like it was probably the starter motor playing up but may of been related to your current problem. The ignition barrel sometimes locks at the same time as the steering and you have to move the steering wheel that little bit of movement back and forward whilst turning the key to unlock them. If this does not work then it may be a problem with the ignition barrel which may need replacing. The other 2 things it could be is the starter relay or a fuse.

My bmw 318 steering wheel is locked


common problem and will probably nessesitate replacing ignition switch barrel and steering lock, you will have to remove upper and lower steering covers and lower steering column to lowest position to allow you access to the two shear bolts which hold the steering lock assembly to the steering column, your local bmw agent shoul be able to get you the parts to allow you to use your own keys.

Locked steering wheel


Something wrong with your Ignition key barrel,
Ignition key barrel jam in place.
or
Could be your anti-Theft System failed (including, but not limited) fuses, wirings, etc. If you have one.
or
So check the fuse boxes (one in the cabin & the other in the engine compartment).
To see if there is any burned fuses.

See Fuse Boxes:

See in the plastic cover, a plastic fuse puller ( use it to pull the fuses) once a time & check NOT burn.


If locked in place; do these steps:
1 - Juggle it several times in a very soft & slow burst.

2 - Juggle (Shake) the steering wheel RH & LH,
several times in a very gentle & slow.

3 – Try to remove the ignition switch

4 – Search the internet Google, www.about.com, www.youtube.com/video
For clues to help you sort out your problems.

Ignition is locked


I had the same exact problem tonight. My key would not turn the ignition. I could not start by pulling the steering wheel and the tow company could not tow it out of the garage, BUT before this happened as I was driving the car earlier in the day, I noticed it was very difficult to drive and got concerned.
