Posted by Anonymous on
Check your alternator and steering pump belts to see if they are correctly adjusted. Also check to see if the crankshaft pulley is not loose.

Normally this is caused by a problem with the brake light switch. If you don't take care of this soon you will have a dead battery, so try this. Look under the dash at the brake pedal. There will be a switch mounted on the backside of the pedal/arm that has a push button switch inside. Have someone stand behind the car and check to see if the brake lights go off when you pull the brake pedal away from the switch toward the driver's seat. If they do, then you need to turn the outer housing of the switch a little bit to make it pull away from the brake pedal when the pedal is in its resting position.
Sorry, I can't remember which way to tell you to turn it but a few turns should be all that it takes. If that doesn't work then you may need to replace the switch but they rarely fail.

Hello. A vibration in the steerign wheel indicates an issue with the front tires. They are either out of balance, and would need to be rebalanced, or it is possible (although remotely) that the tire(s) may be compromised (after hitting a pothole), the belts in the tire may be corrupted. What I would suggest is to take the car to a reputable tire place, and get the balance checked. While the tire is on the balancer, the Tech will be able to see if the tire is out-of-round due to possible road damage. Probably just a tire balance problem. Thanks for choosing FixYA for assistance.

First, check to see if the front wheels are turned in either direction and have exrternal pressure on them; such as resting against the curb. If that's the case, then your problem is that the wheels (and steering wheel) are under pressure and you need to counter-act that pressure in order to turn the ignition lock. So make a note of the direction of the front wheels....you'll need to muscle the steering wheel in the opposite direction. So do this....with the key in the ignition, take your left hand and try to turn the wheel in the opposirte direction that the wheels are turned. At the same time, take your right hand and try to turn the ignition lock. If the front wheels are under a great deal of pressure, it may take some muscle to turn the steering wheel in the opposite direction, but all you need is a small amount to release the pressure on the ignition lock abnd allow you to turn the key. Try it. Good luck.
