The key runs a relay. The relay is welded in the on position. Start pulling out relays until you find the one that stops the car.

Steering wheel is locked and cant get key to turn in ignition, what can I do?

A lot of times this happens because pressure was held on the steering wheel when the engine was shut off. When the engine is running the power steering pump helps hold the steering wheel in one direction or the other and when you stop the engine that pump pressure stops also so you need to overcome that force while you turn the key. Here's what you do, grab the steering wheel and try to turn it in either direction. It should move freely an inch or so in both directions. If it doesn't then grab it firmly and try to turn it. Left or right. If it feels like it is locked in one direction but turns a little in the other direction then that's the direction you have to rotate it in while at the same time you turn the key on. BTW, what kind of car is it?
Hope this helps.

Very hard to turn steering wheel

Um... the video didn't demonstrate anything, only showed the steering wheel and the key.

If the engine is running, the tires aren't jammed against solid objects, there's no noise from the pump, the belt is tight, the power steering reservoir is full of fluid, and the steering wheel is still very hard to turn... then I suspect that the power steering pump has simply worn out badly and needs to be replaced.

Steering wheel locks when key is in On position, unlocks in Off

Either you got the wrong lock or you messed something up. Time to take it out and start over.

Steering/brake is locked and key wont turn

Assuming the car is not running and you are trying to start it, sometimes the steering wheel is locked from the wheel thrying to turn back on itself and this won't allow the key to turn. Try turning the steering wheel all the way to the left or right then while the wheel turned, try to turn the key.

You turn the key and it wants to start but it doesnt Could it be the coil? 1995 honda oddessy

It sounds like a problem i just had. Try this...turn the key as if you are starting it...but as soon as it starts turning over, slightly turn the key as if you were going to turn the car off (just slightly). It is stays running (while holding the key) there is an ingnition switch just under the steering wheel by the brake pedal that needs replacing. It cost me $60.

Turn key off on a 200 jetta and the engine stays running. Pop clutch to kill and the dash stays lit. Turn key back and the steering wheel locks like normal.

Key switch is defective. Very common on this model. Some of them won't start. Dealer item only unless you go to a junkyard. Hope this helps. Good luck

1999 Toyota Camary, steering wheel locked and ignition will not turn to start car. You can turn the key to accessory and power up radio, ect. but will no turn to start car. any suggetions

Some cars will lock the steering wheel when the ignition is turned to the lock position. To try and start the car, grab the steering wheel and try to move the steering wheel back and forth while turning the ignition key at the same time. Be aware that the steering wheel could require a pretty good yank before the ignition unlocks.

Hope that helps
