SOURCE: Key won't turn in the ignition

your tumblers are probably sticking. you might want to try some fine machine or penetrating oil in the cylinder first. but chances are you will have to change the cylinder and that will cure you issues.

SOURCE: when turning steering wheel to left very hard to turn

Sounds like the begining of a bad rack n pinion. We can eliminate the pump because the car turns to the right fine. There is no loss of fluid? The only thing left is the rack. It is a fairly commin issue. Use to call it morning sickness, The cars would be hard to turn in the morning or when first started but after running and warming up for a while they would start to work properly.

When I try to park on the right side of the street my van stops making the turn.


check for central position of the rack/ steering box. If there has been recent work on the steering ,it is possible that the box/rack was not in the straight ahead position before it was connected up.

I have a 94 buick park avenue and the shifter stopped engaging the transmission. I had to manuver it home in drive and the turn off the vehicle. the shifter is in park but the indicator shows it in drive.


Is it just the indicator that stopped working? If you can still shift through the gears then I wouldn't spend the money fixing the indicator.
thank you,

Grasp the steering wheel and firmly attempt to turn it back and forth while simultaneously turning your ignition key back and forth.
To prevent this from happening again, straighten your wheels before you shut off the ignition.

Well, if it is doing all of that, the Check Engine light has GOT to be SCREAMING at you! Continuing to try to force the vehicle to operate under such conditions will only cause further damage to the vehicle. I would recommend getting the thing to where you can scan your onboard computer and find out what is going on.

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.
