Sounds like your brakes are dragging on that side,try spraying some WD40 to work them loose,also check your parking brake adjustment.

2010 chevy Equinox LT Left rear wheel is locked. Could the parking brake be stuck on?


It could be a parking brake issue but it could also be a failed wheel bearing. If you get that wheel off the ground, does it flop around? If so, you need at least a bearing. It may have damaged the knuckle as well. It should have made a distinct roaring or humming sound as it was failing.

Turn whhel real sharp on 2005 ford explorer left rear wheel wants to lockundefined


If you have four wheel drive, turning the wheels sharply at a slow speed when in 4X4 mode can result in a wheel binding. The other possibilities are low lubricant in the rear differential, wrong lubricant in the rear differential if it has been replaced, or a bad differential.

Why can't I unlock my ignition and start my car?


Put one hand on the steering wheel and rotate slightly left and right alternatively whilst turning the ignition key at the same time with the other hand. This might release the steering wheel and start ignition.

Hope this helps.

I have locked the steering wheel, how do I unlock it. Now the car is immobilized and I can't start the engine


You may have to use a little muscle here. When this happens, turning you steering wheel to the left usually will release the ignition lock cylinder so tha you can turn the key. Make sure you hold the steering wheel once you have turned it. Keep in mind, it won't turn very far. One side you turn to will feel like it hit something solid, the other side you turn to will be the unlock side.

So
Turn steering wheel and hold until you are able to turn the key. It will take a bit of effort on your part, but that should get it back going.

Locked up Steering Wheel


Your Wheels may not be straight which could cause the steering wheel lock to get stuck. Turn the steering wheel left and right, from one stop to the other, watching how far the wheel travels. Now, turn the wheel to the center of the travel distance and turn the key. If this doesn't free it up, turn the key as you turn the steering wheel left then right to get the lock to release the wheel. Hope this helps and please rate my solution - and thanks for using Fixya!!

Rear left tyre is locked due to constant rain and wet crossings. Have taken wheel off and tapped but still not released. Any other suggestions. Have also locked and unlocked handbrake to no...


I think you will find that the brake shoes are locking the wheel due to the wheel cylinders not being able to return fully. On trucks that use hydrolic brakes you can find a small wheel type adjuster in the backing plate. Usually 1 per cylinder and theres often 2 cylinders per wheel. Try to de-adjust the wheel cylinders to free the wheel. This wil only allow the wheel to turn. After a brake aplication u might find the wheel is back to the original situation. So i suggest removing the brake drum and investigating further.

check both front lockouts,1 side or the other could have broken,unlock 1 side and reach underneath and try turning the axel on the other side-----if it turns all the way around, then replace that lockout,if it doesnt turrn then try unlocking that side and lock in the other side and see if you can turn it,if so then replace that lockout.if not then something might be wrong with the transfercase to the way it engages
