Question about 2005 Nissan Altima
My 05 Nissan Altima wheel moves 360 degrees and the wheels are not moving. It's like something is out of place. It was driving okay yesterday. Any advice I'm not sure what to do.
Power steering pump would be where I would start.

i think there is a ignition problem , might try replacing it , of course you cant turn the steering if the key wont turn , its a theft prevention device.

Sounds like a bad steering rack & pinion assembly... is it only bad in one direction or both...?
If both then it's the rack assembly... Hope this helps...;-)

If your steering is getting hard to turn, there are a few easy things to check before you assume the worst.. Open the hood and check to see if your power steering pump reservoir is full of fluid and the belt is on and tight. If these all look good, you most likely have some friction or binding in your steering rack and pinion assembly,and that is replaced as an entire unit.

Have you tried to turn the wheel far to the left as you try to turn the key? Also try to turn the key backwards in the ignition while holding wheel to the left. If those don't work, maybe try sliding the key in with a little WD-40 as this will lubricate the ribs in the ignition slightly and just insert/remove key slowly and quickly a few times and then try the steps above.
Does the car have a key release button? Sometimes these get stuck with the wheel turned slightly and the ribs of the ignition will not close on the key to allow for operation of the ignition.
Let me know,
