Question about 2004 Ford F150

1 Answer

Steering wheel seemed to lock up

I had been driving for a while on the interstate. When I got in town to make a left turn- which I had come to a dead stop. It seemed that the truck steering wheel was locked and would not let me turn, so I proceeded down the road and made several left turns there after and it was fine. Drove again later and the steering seemed fine. We just got it back from the shop from having spark plugs and a coil changed. They said that there were no other codes when they first checked it out other than what we had repaired. Could this be a power steering problem? I have never had it do this ever. It has 81,000 miles on it.

I would take the steering wheel apart and check the key lock on it and see if the rods are prematurely locking

Key is locked in the ignition swicth


If the steering wheel is under great tension, this can cause the key to be unable to unlock the steering column or turn in the cylinder. Try pulling the wheel first to the right while turning the key, and if that fails, then the left. Often this will release the tension and allow the key to turn and the column to unlock.

Steering wheel Lock When Driving


If you can still turn the wheel when this happens, the problem is usually with the power steering pump or the steering rack. First step would be to check the engine serpentine belt to make sure it is not slipping - if there is any sign of cracking or wear, replace it. If it seems loose, check the belt idler - it may be warn out and sticking.

Have you tried wiggling the steering wheel at the same time as you turn the key? Have you tried pushing on the gear shift lever, to make sure it's all the way in park?

Weird steering problem.


This sounds to me like it may actually be your steering gearbox, Chevrolet is known for having gearbox issues. Sounds like there may be a dead spot in the gearbox, but it is only noticeable at higher speeds and not slower speeds. Would recommend having it looked at. Usually a suspension issue wouldn't cause that type of feeling. Hope this helps.
