If your power steering fluid level is within normal range you may have what my 2004 Sienna had, a known issue where the u-joint on the steering shaft gets corroded. I was able to lubricate the u-joint and it cleared the issue. See this site for how to do it too: How to Fix Toyota Sienna Stiff Steering Share Your Repair

Check that the ignition switch wheel lock is disengaging completely and not catching on the teeth in the column. Check for seizing up joints in the steering shaft. Have a steering shop check it out as it is potentially dangerous

SOURCE: steering wheel very hard to turn left or right

The steering gear-oil must be filled to its proper level.
Next, make sure your balljoints, tie-rod ends, rack & pinion assembly are properly lubricated.
Wheel alignment, low tire pressure must be ok.

2000 ford f 150 key wont turn in the ignition what do i do


Hi Rebecca, I'm Al the owner of Big As Auto Repair

Rebecca, sometimes the steering wheel can get locked in a position that will not allow you to turn the key. If the steering wheel is straight ahead ignore this first answer. Sometimes the key and tumblers ware out. If this is the case here's something you can try. Take a can of lube and spray right down the key so it enters the lock cylinder, next take something and hit on the end of the key several times then try to turn it. If this works you'll need to get the key and tumbler replaced right away because it will do it again. If you need further assistance go to my auto repair website below. Have an awesome day Rebecca.

Ignition key will not turn.


This happens to me sometimes because the pressure of the steering lock is enough to keep me from being able to turn the key. Try moving the steering wheel while turning the key, if that doesn't work, flip the key over and try again (unless it is a one sided key), if that doesn't work, then you are likely looking at a bad lock cylinder and it will have to be replaced.

Key won't turn in ignition


On many vehicles, the key locks the steering wheel. If the wheel is turned, it can keep the key from turning. While trying to turn the key, push the steering wheel hard to the right and if that doesn't work, push the steering wheel hard to the left.

I put key in ignition this morning and the key would not turn. What do I do to fix problem? Steering wheel is not locked, battery is not dead


A couple of guesses so if it fails you'll have to post the problem again.

1) Is there a button to release the ignition lock, sometimes on the underneath of the steering column?
2) Assuming no or you've already tried that, sometimes, if when parked, the steering wheel is turned slightly, the steering lock and the ignition lock bind. Just try rocking the steering wheel left and right, no more than 8th of a turn, while trying to turn the ignition key. May just work.

As I got out of the car i grabbed the wheel and it moved left and clicked. Now I cant get the key to turn in ignition and wheel is locked. What do I do?


move the steering wheel while turning the key in the ignition and it should come unlocked. This happens sometimes, its just on a bind. Like i said just turn the steering wheel left and right the little bit that you can and the key will be able to turn.

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.

Power steering


Support front wheels off ground. Chock rear tires, get an assistant for safty. Start engine (do not put in gear) step outside of car and manually turn wheels left and right by hand. Cut off engine. Turn key back to release steering lock. Manually turn wheels by hand again. If it requires the same ammount of strength to turn wheels, then Rack and Pinion is bypassing internally. Solution... replace rack & pinion.
