SOURCE: 1998 Wranger Ignition Key Stuck / Steering Column Locked

I have had this same problem on 4 of my Jeeps. A locksmith provided me with two answers.
This key thing happens to me at least once a week.
It is a common problem with Jeeps. 1998 Wrangler, 2007 Cherokee and two 2000 Cherokees all had the issue.


1. Replace the tumbler assembly. $150. USD (Not!)
2. Place the key in the ignition, smartly impact the key on the **** end, end that is sticking out of the ignition. (Harder is not better) strike straight on as to not break the key off. 4 or 5 strikes should fix the problem every time.

FYI - flooding the switch with WD-40 will not fix the issue, it is a tumbler problem.

SOURCE: steering column locked

temporary solution is to put the key in the ignition and tap on the end that attaches to the ring vdery gently with something like a pocket knife. this allows the pin to fall into place and work better. try to keep the key in an unbound... not against either the clockwise limit or counterclockwise limit.... as you are tapping. if this works, lubricate the lock and get it to a locksmith before it quits working all together and the lock needs to be drilled

SOURCE: durango steering column locked...how can I fix

Try turning the wheel slightly and turning the key, this will relieve pressure off the steering lock mechanism. If that doesn't work, try tapping the key. That is a common problem on 99-05 Caravans

SOURCE: I have a freelander 05 td4 diesel When you turn

It really does not hurt anything but your ears. However, if the noise is annoying you, there is a replacement intermediate steering column shaft available from the dealer that is re-designed to fix this problem.

My steering column is locked in the down position any suggestions?


Reach down under the center of the steering column assembly, centered on the column just below knee height is a lever that pulls down and away. Pull the lever, move the steering column back to where you want it then re-engage the lever until flush with the surrounding fascia panel.

Locked ignition steering wheel locked


Some of these cars had a button under the steering column that you could push to release the locked wheel. Feel under the steering wheel and column going from the end of the wheel towards the dash and see if there is button on the underside that you can push.
Good luck.

On my altima 96 when I'm parking or turning extremely slow the steering wheel somewhat locks


Hi, can you tell if it's the lock in the steering column or something with the power steering instead? If it feels like the power steering, check the belt for looseness and tighten as needed. If it feels like it's in the column, your locking assembly may be coming loose inside. Below is a procedure for removing the steering wheel lock for inspection. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The steering lock/ignition switch/warning buzzer switch assembly is attached to the steering column by special bolts whose heads shear off upon installation. The bolts must be drilled out to remove the assembly or be removed with an appropriate tool. The bolts may also be removed with a hammer and chisel by notching the bolts and tapping them counterclockwise with the hammer and chisel.
The ignition switch or warning switch can be replaced without removing the steering lock assembly. The ignition switch is on the back of the assembly and the warning switch is on the side.


CAUTION The models covered by this guide may be equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), which uses an air bag. Whenever working near any of the SRS components, such as the impact sensors, the air bag module, steering column and instrument panel, disable the SRS, as described in Chassis Electrical .

  1. Disable the air bag system by disconnecting the negative battery cable and waiting at least 10 minutes, prior to starting this procedure.
  2. Remove the steering column covers.
  3. Remove the steering wheel.
  4. Remove the spiral cable assembly.
  5. Remove the combination switch from the steering column.
  6. Remove the steering column support nuts and lower the steering column.
  7. Disconnect the ignition switch wiring.
  8. Remove the bolts that secure the steering lock and remove the steering lock assembly.

To install:
  1. Install the steering lock assembly and secure with new shear type bolts.
  2. Connect the ignition switch wiring harness.
  3. Raise the steering column and secure with mounting nuts. Tighten the mounting nuts to 11-14 ft. lbs. (15-19 Nm).
  4. Install the spiral cable assembly.
  5. Install the combination switch.
  6. Install the steering column covers.
  7. Install the steering wheel.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable.

2004 SATURN ION POWER STEERING COLUMN


The C0474 code refers to a steering angle sensor located at or near the base of the steering column. Check where the steering column goes through the front of dash and verify the connector is fully seated and locked.
The sensor gets its voltage from the ABS module.
Let me know if it is clean, locked and seated. Make sure there are no pushed out or bent terminals on the connector.
Check this first and we can go from there.

Remove steering wheel and steering column in 1992 acura legend


first , as you try to turn on the ignition , move the steering back and forth to release the pressure on the lock tab on the steering shaft
next you will have to install a safety pin to stop the air bag going off
there are 4 bots that hold the lock assembly onto the shaft but you will need a grinder to get the bolts out as they have no heads
it is easier to remove the steering column complete from the car to replace the switch
it is not really a diy job unless you have a workshop manual and some mechanical experience
