Steering column will not lock


Yep, it should lock.
Try "jiggling" steering wheel after you've removed the key. It should lock.

The car will turn over but won`t start but if I turn the key on and jump the starter it starts


Sounds like the ignition switch has gone kaput. The ignition switch come in two pieces, an electrical switch and a mechanical switch.

The switch electrical portion can be replaced separatly from the mechanical portion (tumbler that the key engages). It is not a real difficult repair but requires some mechanical knowlege of how the column is assembled.

This can be verified with electrical test equipment prior to buying a new electrical switch.

Okay, my boyfriend owns a 2000 ford f-250 super duty and your prolly wondering as to why im asking about this instead of him ... well im more mechanically inclined then he is lol funny huh... okay heres...


It sounds like the shift tube bushings are worn out. There are usually 2 u shaped clamps that have nylon bushings that hold the shift tube to the steering clumn. If loose, that throws off the shift position, could be btween 2 gears at once, and throws off the park - neutral safety switch. Fix that first.

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

Steering column locked


When you get the key into the ignition, Try turning the wheel to one side or the other as you turn the key. Some vehicle's steering columns will "lock" if the wheel is turned to tightly when the ignition gets turned off. Hope that helps.

INFINITII 35 Steering Column Wont release


Are you sure the steering wheel isn't putting pressure on the steering lock release mechanism? Pull the wheel slightly to the left and right while trying to turn on the ignition.
