Question about 2002 Toyota Sienna

1 Answer

I've had worsening problems with steering noise clicking and tension in the steering column when turning rt. or left. The steering column was replaced by Toyota (very expensive) and it has started again. My husband says to just ignore it! Should I be concerned. It is very annoying and I'm concerned something may just snap.

There was a service bulletin for a steering column clunking, but a clicking might be due to a torn cv boot located on your drive axles. If it is the cv boot then there is sometimes grease that leaks onto your front rims if enough gease leaks.

Key is locked in the ignition swicth


If the steering wheel is under great tension, this can cause the key to be unable to unlock the steering column or turn in the cylinder. Try pulling the wheel first to the right while turning the key, and if that fails, then the left. Often this will release the tension and allow the key to turn and the column to unlock.

I want to know if it is dangerous to drive with a squeeky clock spring in my van


Yes its risky. Dont drive with that noise from clock spring.Its indication of its failure.
I believe this is the "clockspring" -- the electrical cable inside the steering column that connects your steering-wheel-mounted electrical controls to the rest of the car. ("Controls" used be just the horn.) The cable wraps around the steering column so it can turn with the steering wheel. Sometimes it starts to rub and squeak.

I have a freelander 05 td4 diesel When you turn the steering wheel I'm getting a clicking noise from steering Column Has anyone else had this problem ?


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.

2009 Honda accord ex-L. 27k miles. The steering wheel is making a clicking sound when the wheel is turned to the left or right. this is a most noticable when the steering wheel is in the lowest position.


This sounds like it should be a warranty issue due to the year of the vehicle and the mileage.. It sounds like a bearing or the universal joint in the steering column is worn prematurely. I am assuming the noise is coming from the steering column and not from one or both of the half shafts on your front axle. There is a chance the noise could be from the canceling mechanism for the turn signal, but I think it would be worth having it looked at by your dealer. Hope that helps.

My emergency hazard flashers are giving me fits. When I press the buttong to turn them on they work fine, and when I press the button to turn them off they go off but the noise stay on. IT sounds like a...


There is a 4-way switch inside your steering column which controls the hazard lights the blinkers. If this switch is faulty your example is one thing that can happen. If the problem worsens you could lose all exterior lighting except the headlights. I had this happen to me one time.

2007 ford focus clicking noise in steering column


This clicking noise that you said does it do it when you turn? If so your problem lies in your CVJoints. Constant velocity joints are attached to the steering mechanism. Try an experiment first. Get the vehicle at about 15 mph and do a small donut (controlled) parking lot would be easier for this and safer. Then turn the opposite direction. If the clicking noise is on both directions then you might as well replace both inner and outer CV joints for the right and left side. It might be your rack and pinion as well. The joints fail first before your rack and pinion so check that first. You may want to see the fluid level on the rack and pinion to see if that was the problem. Check the cheapest thing first. Let me know Gabe.
