Have you tried giving it a hard ****? some models (i know from experience) you put your key in, depress the brake and give the steering wheel a hard **** to unlock. hey, it won't cost to try.

My ignition wont turn and it seem to have locked my whole car up. what can be the mane cause for it not to turn and locked my car up the switch for the computer part of is and what is it called?


Is your steering wheel turned tight.Sometimes if you park and leave your wheels turned a little bit it pulls on the lock on the steering wheel sometimes.You have to try and move your steering wheel when its off and see if its real hard to move.try pulling the steering wheel off the lock and turn the key.also I think u meant the brain.

1987cadallic deville steeringwheel


Hi,

Usually, vehicles with tilt adjust steering, have a small lever just under the steering wheel column. Pulling this lever out, unlocks the wheel. Pushing lever back in, locks the wheel.

Have a look for a lever of this type and once you find it, have your Dad hold the steering wheel at his preferred position, then push the locking lever back up, to lock the wheel in place.

Let me know if you resolve this.....

Can not turn the ignition key, to start car?


This is a very common situation that arises when the steering-lock mechanism binds, it is usually because the wheels are jammed against the curb.
Follow the instructions below to solve the issue:--
1) First of all make sure that the transmission is in park. Set the parking brake to prevent the car from rolling farther against the curb
2) Pull hard on the steering wheel while turning it in both directions. This will normally free the wheel, but if it does not help. then,
3) Release the parking brake and put the transmission in neutral. Let up on the foot pedal just enough to rock the car slightly.and now turn the steering wheel again. this time the key should turn now.
Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Car is in park wheel & key wont turn


Your anti-theft steering lock is stuck.

Grab the steering wheel and pull HARD to the left, turning the key at the same time. It should pop loose.

My wife couldn't do it the other day, but it was just because she didn't have enough brute strength. The neighbor came over and pulled hard and sure enough it broke free.

Your steering wheel is locked in place. You need to put the key into the ignition, then turn the steering wheel more towards the way it is already turned and try turning the key then in the ignition. The steering wheel should move ever so slightly and it should free up the ignition. Let me know how this turns out.

2001 ford focus steering is lock, how to unlock it? this is the third time it happened.is this serious?


When you try to start the car does the key seem stuck, not turning? Occasionally I have to turn the steering wheel just a little before the key will turn. Always try to straighten your front wheels when you park before turning off the car, this puts less strain on the locking part of the steering wheel and makes it easier to start the car next time. The serious part of a steering wheel is the air bag, do not try to disassemble the steering wheel yourself, you may want to take it to a mechanic you trust in case an interior part of your steering wheel needs replacing.

That's my guess.
