First check your tire pressures, or first check the fluid level for the power steering. either way check them both. If all is within specs then time to have it diagnosed at a shp. Also is the belt noisy. It could be slipping or a pully could have a frozon bearing

Steering wheel locked up


Just a question that might help.
Are the wheels straight or turned at a hard angle? If the wheels are angled turn the steering wheel in the same direction and then try to turn the key with pressure still on the steering wheel.You have to take the pressure off the stop to have the key cylinder turn.
If the wheels are straight have you tried a different key?

Key wont turn


try turning the steering wheel hard over left or right (both) while trying to turn the key with the normal amount of force. (never force the key)
most likely, it is just the steering wheel lock stopping the key from rolling forward.

I own a 2006 Chevrolet HHR. The steering sytem seems not to be working. When the car is in a standstill poistion, the steering wheel is OK. Once it is on the road it becomes very hard. I have a signal...


Hey, I'm an automotive technician. And if I were you, i'd take it to a GM dealer, especially if thats where you purchased it, because GM is recalling millions of Chevy steering columns. It's not your fault, or anything you've done. GM's mistake, and they'll fix it.

Pulled into store . got back in my truck the wheels are turned outward. The key will not turn the ignition. cant move the steering wheel at all or the gears shifter.


I would say that the wheels have gone up against the stops and the steering lick has slipped in and been pinched by the steering column. Turn the steering wheel as hard as you can in the direction the wheels are pointing and then try turn the key. Rather **** the steering wheel than try to force the key - is is the weaker component. This is the obvious solution tho the steering/key problem and hopefully it ties in with the gear shift problem. Good luck!

Pull the steering wheel alittle hard til you can feel it move from stop to stop. Hold it in the center of that little bit of feeplay and then turn the key. It should unlock the wheel.

99 malibu, key wont turn. Is it most likely switch or could it be the shifter cable?


Try moving the steering wheel left and right hard while trying to turn the key. Let me know if you have any more trouble. If the steering wheel is turned and against its stop then the key wont turn.

Cannot get key to turn in jeep. Have already driven it numerous times today, suddenly can't move steering wheel or gear shift and key will not turn. Help!


Try turning the steering wheel (hard) right and left while turning the key. Steering lock , and ignition lock work in conjunction with each other.

Steering wheel locked in place, key will not turn...


Very likely the steering thrust stored in the tires attempting to turn back is forcing excessive tension against the steering lock.

Try (very hard) to turn the steering wheel either direction while turning the key gently.

If that solves it you can avoid this by letting go of the steering after stopping to park, turn off the ignition slowly (engine off, pause, then key out). This will ensure that the steering wheel comes to rest prior to locking the column.
