Turning the key mechanically unlocks this. I never heard of this and would have to fix it at all cost. If this were to happen while driving....you see what I mean? Woh

Ok lest star by checking your brake ligths, are they working? , check your fuses if theryre not, if your fuse is bad also check all your bulbs if one is shorted to ground will blow the fuse again, if all bulbs are in good shape, then check the brake lite indicator box(located in left upper side off trunk is a litlle square box, yellow most of times) take a litle screw driver and open it if is burmed must be replace, hope this help .

Where is the steering wheel lock located?


If you have the original broken key try putting a mini drop of super glue on broken tip of key ( use a pin or needle to make mini drop) no wider then the width of key excess glue could make key stick in lock, reinstall key if all goes well after 2-3 minutes key will pullout broken piece with it when you remove it . Additionally lock mechanism is in the steering column Not easily accessible .

Key broke I off in the ignition of my 99 mercury tracer how do I manually unlock steering column?


You can't There is a pin that engages to lock the steering column that is activated by the turn of the cylinder...You must remove the steering wheel ( a big task considering you have airbags) to disengage the locking mechanism and replace the cylinder...You are best to get a locksmith that deals with automobiles.. They have tools that can extract a broken key...It is far better than having the steering wheel and locking mechanism removed. (It is not cheap!()

Broken steering pin lock


As the pin is in the bracket on the end of the switch you may be able to manipulate it if you can get the key and barrel out of the bracket around the steering column. Otherwise you will have to have the bracket removed from the column and fit a new one .

Hello, thank you for helping. I have a 1990 Chevy truck C1500 with a broken steering column that is a tilt, and I have a floor shift. I found a 1990 Chevy truck C1500 tilt steering column from a standard....


if you have a floor shift and the replacement has a colum shift..you can use the colum and remove the pin that holds the shift arm on..it comes out with a pin remover .. just tap it down and out..the arm slides out..then use as normal..

I slid off my driveway in a snow storm & got stuck. My problem is the steering column is locked & can't turn the ignition to start it or unlock it to get towed out. What could the problem be?


ther should be a steering wheel lock in the colum that engages when the vehicle is shut off . if you slid into the ditch and your wheels are turned or ther is a lot of presure on the wheels or colum then the lock wont disengage( the lock is jambed up because of the presure on it) try to remove the presure on the wheels and pull opposite on the steering wheel. if you get rid of enough presure on the lock it should turn again

How do i remove the steering colum shroud to replace ignition on 1996 ford thunderbird


Remove the bottom shroud panel below the steering wheel and then the bottom black steering wheel cover (3 screws in the holes). You will see a 1/8 inch hole and pin below the lock set. Put the key lock in the neutral position and push the pin and remove the ignition lock set. Put the new lock set in the neutral position and insert it. Turn it to the off position which resets the lock pin.

Do i to remove my steering wheel to replace my ignition switch


just remove the top and bottom plastic steering colume covers that wrap around the ign lock cylinder. than you will see from the bottom of the barrel where the lock cylinder slides in there should be a 1/8 brass pin in a small hole .. you have to push in this pin while turning the key switch foward, than just slide out the lock cylinder key and all. reinstall is just as simple , slide in the lock cylinder and just remove the key. you should not have to remove the steering wheel at all...
good luck chris
