I have a 1998 Chevy blazer and I am having trouble making sharp turns left and right its almost like the breaks are sticking but I have replaced everything but those hose itself. It also happens if I have...

If it feels like the front end is hopping or binding than I would put my money on the four wheel drive being engaged. On dry pavement the four wheel drive has no way of of slipping through a turn. the front end will hop to compensate for this.

If your lucky enough to find a snow covered parking lot or field or even a loose gravel road, try some tight turns. If the problem goes away its in the four wheel drive system.

When i accelerate it starts clicking a light click like if it hitting a thin sheet metal but this only happens when i come to a stop and accelerate at a higher speed nothing runs great

does it make a clicking sound when you make a tight turn into like a parking lot or street? and maybe only one direction? if so you need to get your drive/half shafts rebuilt or replaced because the boot protecting the joint has ripped or come loose and has let dirt in and grease out.

Ignition switch will not turn on. Battery is good. Steering wheel is locked, What should we do?

Quite often that will happen when vehicle parked with wheels turned, and/or vehicle on a slope, so try to avoid that in future.If nothing else, when parked on a slope, stop, keep foot on brake pedal, apply parking brake, put transmission in neutral, then take foot off brake pedal and wait for parking brake to stop vehicle rolling, then shift it into park. When leaving, put foot on brake pedal, shift to drive or reverse whatever direction your going, then release parking brake. Sounds like a lot to remember but you won't have to pull hard on shifter as before, and it could save a lot of money on transmission repairs down the road. Always try to park with wheels straight as well.
Now, with that said, if you parked with wheels turned, try hard to turn steering wheel in same direction wheels are turning, just slightly, as you try to turn key. Sometimes a quick yank in that direction will do it. Also make sure shifter is all the way in park before you try it. If your on a slope try rocking vehicle slightly up slope as you push/pull shift lever in to park and try to turn key at same time. If no luck, try pushing brake pedal real hard and try to turn key. Let me know how it goes.

05 equnox sharp turn noise

I forgot to ask if the noise was front or rear and stationary or moving so I will cover both.

If the noise is while the truck is stationary and the noise is from the front I would have to say the power steering pump. I have been changing several lately for similar concerns.

As far as the rear if the noise happens while making sharp turns and makes a whirring/growling noise while in motion its the rear differntial. What you can do yourself to be sure is find an open lot and drive in rather tight circles for about a minute, then noise should stop. This action flushes the clutch disks and stops the noise. If the noise goes away you will need to do a rear diff flush.

The fluid is very expensive so be sure this is your problem first.

In order to do the flush drive in tight circles for 5 minutes in each direction and then drain and fill the rear diff with the new Versatrak fluid.

Good Luck
