Question about 1988 Volkswagen Golf
Had steering wheel off to access dash board put it back on and steering lock wont work and horn is on constantly
Hi. It sounds like the steering lock has not been put back into position properly. This would need reassembly.

The oxygen sensor, (also called the lambda sensor), is right after the exhaust manifold, which is on the back side of the engine, so you need to reach it from underneath.
However, it is expensive, so you may want to take it out carefully and simply have it checked first.
With an ohmmeter you can tell if it is burned out.
0 or infinite ohms is bad.
I believe it should be around 1500 ohms, but don't remember exactly.
The other thing is deposits like carbon can make it ineffective, and can be cleaned sometimes.
If you put a new one in, a little antizsieze is a good idea, but don't put on much, because you don't want to contaminate the sensor. Just enough to make removal easier. Remove and clean it every year.

they are the locking wheel nuts(lugs)and you will need a key(not a hex allen key)to remove them.if you look close you will see that the sides are not equal.
I use a nut spilitter or an old socket hammered onto the nut to remove it,means replacements but next time you buy a car check to make sure you have the radio code and the wheel nut key.
