SOURCE: A4 steering lock does not engage and car won't turn over

The steering locks don't necessarily engage when the key is removed, I always turn the wheel before exiting to engage it. There are several positions that will allow the pin to lock in but if between these, it may seem that it isn't locked.

SOURCE: 2002 saturn sl1 ignition switch lock up

Usually this can be temporarily solved with a shot of graphite lubricant into the key hole and moving the steering wheel side to side while turning the key. But, in the end, the ignition cylinder is wearing out and will eventually need replacing.

Key will not turn ignition at all from off position & noticed steering wheel also is not locking up even with both front wheels lifted off ground.


think you need a new steering lock ,the flat drive piece on the end of the barrel has broken from the sound of it jamming it up .If you cannot get the key to turn to aux position then you have no chance of changing only the barrel so its a complete steering lock assembly .

Where is the steering wheel lock located?


If you have the original broken key try putting a mini drop of super glue on broken tip of key ( use a pin or needle to make mini drop) no wider then the width of key excess glue could make key stick in lock, reinstall key if all goes well after 2-3 minutes key will pullout broken piece with it when you remove it . Additionally lock mechanism is in the steering column Not easily accessible .

Why wont my key turn on 2002 chevy impala I need a diagram of swich


If the steering wheel is lock, try holding the steering wheel right in the middle while you jiggle the key, the sweet spot is the mid point, now i get the steering wheel is locked but it still moves a little bit, and press the brake pedal,at the same time, 1=transmission in park. 2=steering wheel in mid point,.3=depressed brake pedal 4=wriggle the key all the way back then go forward..as far as wiring, bypass well i dont wanna teach nobody how to steal a car, gm its got wiring schematics on line.

2010 Nissan sentra ignition is locked. The steering wheel is not locked. Ive tried turning the wheels, jiggling it, wd40... What do you think?


Bad ignition tumbler/keyset. Something internal is jammed most likely. Or the linkage between the Automatic (assuming it's not a manual tranny) and the steering column isn't properly aligned. but that only prevents the key from going to the position for key removal. It would still rotate to the ACC and ON positions.

When you turn the key,it only goes to the Acc position


Turn the Key OVER and see if you can rotate it then.

Are your Wheels turned HARD and the Steering Wheel Locked?
Are your Wheels against a CURB and not allowing the Steering Wheel to rotate to remove the Locking Mechanism to go freely?

Car will not start. steering wheel won't move. Lights do work. ignition won't turn on. car seems locked up. dodgemuncy@aol.com


The earlier Fords have a half moon shaped pot metal piece in the steering column that engages the ignition switch located just downstream from the keyed tumbler. When this piece breaks the key will turn, but it will turn easily with no resistance which you would normally feel as you turn the key. You would need to replace this piece to correct your problem. This requires removing the steering wheel to access the broken piece. This is a starting point. Hard to say without not being able to actually see your truck. Good luck. This half moon piece is prone to breakage.

CHANGING IGNITION SWITCH ON 1994 FORD TAURUS


key switch?then turn the key to acc,first spot where the radio comes on ,then pull off the plastic steering column cover on the bottom just under the switch,and push a paper clip in the tiny hole under the switch and wiggle the key switch out.if you dont have a key i would recommend a lock smith to pull out the switch because the switch has to turn to acc in order to remove it...if you are talking about the actual ignition switch,its at the bottom of the steering column with 2 little bolts and 1 long wiring plug
