The only reason the steering would be stiff is if your power steering pump has gone bad or you have no power steering fluid which would also ruin the pump. Hope it helps and check it ASAP

I have a 93 regal buick and I can't turn my key something is lock. How can I unlock it?


It could simply be your steering wheel lock. Try turning the wheel to the left and right while you try turning the key.

Ignition switch will not turn on. Battery is good. Steering wheel is locked, What should we do?


Quite often that will happen when vehicle parked with wheels turned, and/or vehicle on a slope, so try to avoid that in future.If nothing else, when parked on a slope, stop, keep foot on brake pedal, apply parking brake, put transmission in neutral, then take foot off brake pedal and wait for parking brake to stop vehicle rolling, then shift it into park. When leaving, put foot on brake pedal, shift to drive or reverse whatever direction your going, then release parking brake. Sounds like a lot to remember but you won't have to pull hard on shifter as before, and it could save a lot of money on transmission repairs down the road. Always try to park with wheels straight as well.
Now, with that said, if you parked with wheels turned, try hard to turn steering wheel in same direction wheels are turning, just slightly, as you try to turn key. Sometimes a quick yank in that direction will do it. Also make sure shifter is all the way in park before you try it. If your on a slope try rocking vehicle slightly up slope as you push/pull shift lever in to park and try to turn key at same time. If no luck, try pushing brake pedal real hard and try to turn key. Let me know how it goes.

I have a Honda CRV (2004) and the steering wheel is locked. The key will not turn in the ignition. Do you know how to unlock?


Try this.... Sit in the car and grab the wheel, pull or push the steering wheel with your left hand and arm, HARD! while turning the ignition.... Sometimes when you park with the wheels turned the weight of the car bears down on the wheels and has a tendency to lock the column!

I would check the power steering belt, next the fluid and go from there!

Unable to unlock ignition switch


Did you park on a hill or in a tight parking spot with your steering wheel cranked to one side?
Try turning the steering wheel (will be very hard to do) as you put the key in the ignition and try to turn the key on, if that doesn't work, try turning the wheel the other way while turning on the key.

Steering wheel getting locked up


I think it is a common problem that while the power steering relaxes and the tyres find a comfortable spot to sit on the road, after you've parked, the steering mechanism can push against the steering lock in the ignition switch. Usually the steering wheel needs a bit of a jiggle while you turn the key. If you were to engage park brake, release foot brake and let go of steering wheel before turning off ignition, it may settle better for you.
