Question about 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Yes, you will need a steering wheel puller and a lock plate tool. You can find them both cheap and good enough quality to use plenty of times. I got mine at Harbor Freight if I remember correctly. Tried doing lock plate one time w/out tool and it was a mistake. Gotta have tool.

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.

You first have to disarm and remove the air bag (unscrews with bolts from behind the steering wheel) and then you will see the screws for the switches. Only the silverado awitches will work.

Although the car is not in front of me, it sounds like when you park ( is this parallel parking ? ) your steering wheel is turned hard to the left or right, which creates extreme pressure on the steering wheel lock. In order to help overcome this problem, you must "armstrong" the steering wheel in the same direction the front wheels are turned. Locking up on the freeway with this same issue. Highly unlikely.

sounds as if the locking mechanism is wearing out or not making the proper connection to the steering wheel
