Ok , the internal mecanism may have brooken if so your best bet will be to remove the steering wheel and chck for a damage locking plate,there is a steel rod that goes thru and it may be bent and stuck,also with the key in try to turn the wheel to either side hard at the same time you try to turn the key.

Front axle


It could be something has come askew with the brake caliper or the disc pads. This might cause a serious problem if it decides to lock up when your driving and cause an accident. I would be very wary of driving it with this problem it's not worth the possible outcomes.

2010 chevy Equinox LT Left rear wheel is locked. Could the parking brake be stuck on?


It could be a parking brake issue but it could also be a failed wheel bearing. If you get that wheel off the ground, does it flop around? If so, you need at least a bearing. It may have damaged the knuckle as well. It should have made a distinct roaring or humming sound as it was failing.

My steering wheel locked up all of a sudden when I was driving and now it is incredibly hard to turn the wheel. I can still turn it on and off so I don't think it is just the ignition. I have a 2001...


Check that the belt that drives the power steering pump hasn't broke, then check the fluid level in the power steering resevoir, If all is okay then most likely the power steering pump has failed.

How to put in four wheel drive


FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE SYSTEM

(a) Four-wheel drive control

Use the four-wheel drive control lever and center

differential lock button to select the following transfer and

center differential modes.

The "H" and "L" position of the four-wheel drive control lever

provides either lock or unlock mode of the center differential

depending on the center differential lock button position.

Use the center differential lock system if your wheels get stuck

in a ditch, or when you are driving on a slippery or bumpy

surface. When the center differential is locked, the vehicle

stability control system is automatically turned off and the

center differential lock and "VSC OFF" indicator lights come on

because the function that controls engine performance

As soon as the center differential lock switch is turned

on, the "VSC OFF" indicator light comes on. After the

wheels are out of the ditch or off the slippery or bumpy

surface, turn the center differential lock switch off.

Make sure the center differential lock indicator light and

vehicle stability control system off indicator light turn

off.

"H" (high speed position, center differential unlocked):

Lever at "H", center differential lock button left out

Use this for normal driving on all types of roads, from dry

hard-surfaced roads to wet, icy or snow-covered roads. This

position gives greater economy, quietest ride, least wear and

better vehicle control.

"H" (high speed position, center differential locked): Lever

at "H", center differential lock button pushed in

Use this for greater traction when you experience a loss of

power, such as wheel slipping, in the center differential unlock

mode.

"N" (neutral position): Lever at "N"

No power is delivered to the wheels. The vehicle must be

stopped.

"L" (low speed position, center differential unlocked):

Lever at "L", center differential lock button left out

Use this for maximum power and traction. Use this for climbing

or descending steep hills, off-road driving, and hard pulling in

sand or mud.

In this mode, the braking feeling that occurs when the wheels

are negotiating a sharp corner is further reduced than in the "L"

(low position, center differential locked) mode.

"L" (low speed position, center differential locked): Lever

at "L", center differential lock button pushed in

Use this for maximum power and traction. Use this for hard

pulling in situations the vehicle cannot negotiate even in the "L"

(low speed position, center differential unlocked) mode. Also,

using this mode when driving down steep off-road inclines will

help contribute to increased vehicle stability.

Steering wheel locks up when parked


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.
