Hi, this failure looks like lack of oil into the steering wheel pump you better check oil amount on it.

2009 Hyunda Santa Fe stalls while driving


I had a similar problem with my Santa Fe. It occurred intermittently but after I turned the steering wheel to the left. After much screwing around by the dealer and trying to baffle me with BS we heard about a strange solution. I am not a mechanic but the problem somehow related to a spring in the Airbag on the steering wheel. Changed the spring and "Stone the flame'n crows" problem solved. Never had a problem since.

My key will not physically turn in the ignition start, and my steering wheel appears to be locked. how do i unlock it? any other solutions?


Try turning the steering wheel a back and forth while trying to turn the key to start at the same time. Sometimes when you park, the steering wheel will turn a little and lock up on you. If that does not help then your ignition lock cylinder may be bad and require replacement. Its very detailed work to replace a lock cylinder and recommend a shop if that is the case.

The key wont turn in the ignition of my hyundai santa fe, its a 2005. The steering wheel lock is on and the wheels are straight, the key does not turn at all.


hi from uk please try this ? with key removed try gently turning steerwheel to the right if you feel a slight spring in steering ? hold on the spring and insert key it should work and release lockand turn ign on ? if steering is springing on left ? try as above the same method not unusual for steer lock to prevent turning key as the steering even in straight position ? the necessity to gently release load on lock is req'd to allow key to turn/unlock the steering lock from the steering column practice doing the above each time you fit key to unlock steering and tuning ign on to start hope this helps

2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. Driving about 10 minutes-stop at redlight and all dashboard lights come on and brakes feel locked. Have to restart ignition and then it's fine. Happened about a month ago as well....


Wiring harness runs along the left side of this vehicle between the engine compartment & the instrument panel junction box (left side under dash). damage may have occurred to this harness and no one found/noticed it.

2004 Santa Fe Ignition switch locked


I just had this happen to me yesterday with my 2002 Santa Fe. After trying everything (jiggling steeling wheel, shaking the car, you name it we tried it). We got a chain and pulled the car ahead about 2 feet. That didn't seem to do anything but we then pulled up the emergency brake into the lock position and tried to start the car (with the ER brake on) and it worked!!! The steering wheel came unlocked and the car started up. Don't know if it was the pulling of the car that broke something free or if it was the ER brake, but that was what worked for me.
