Hello Kimkaye.
There are three bolts that have come loose and will need to be tightened.
Some special tools will be needed to disassemble in order to access these bolts.
I would recommend a professional to do this job for you as there are many parts and pieces to contend with in this job along with the supplemental restraint system (airbag).

Most likely steering gear in the steering box is the issue. There is a lock nut and screw that you can take some slack out of it. If that does not fix all of it have alignment checked also.

I have a 2004 explorer. i get in the car put the key in ignition and turn it. everything turns on but the car. i have to unlock the steering wheel, lift the steering wheel and at the same time turn the key...


Not sure if this helps, but I've seen cases where the steering wheel and tilt assembly loosen up from the steering column. When this happens, the linkage that activates the ignition switch becomes "too short". That's why if you lift the wheel, it "lengthens" the linkage and activates the switch. If this is your problem, the steering wheel has to come off to tighten the tilt assembly bolts. I don't recommend messing with it personally due to the complexity buried inside modern steering wheels (air bag, horn, tilt, cruise controls, audio controls, etc.). Take it somewhere you trust.

Good luck.

How to tighten 1989 steering column?


There is a u-joint inside the steering column if you have tilt wheel. Which I don't think that I have ever seen a steering column get loose if there is not tilt wheel. If there is not tilt wheel then there are two bolts that hold the steering column up against the bottom side of the dash. You will just need to tighten these two bolts. If you do have tilt wheel, then it is going to require taking the steering column out and replacing the u-joint in the steering column.

Steering wheel is very loose


It's probably not the steering wheel its self ,but the tilt wheel Assembly allowing the steering wheel and upper bowl Assembly to move around..This is a tough repair for the do-it yourself-er as several special tools are required to perform this repair, The good news is if you take it to a qualified repair shop they can repair this with out needing any parts. to repair this properly they have to gain access to the upper bowl bolts,remove them one at a time and reinstall them with thread locker on them so they will not work their way loose again, then reinstall the removed parts..Ihave probably done a hundred of these over my career If they know what their doing it can be done in about 1 hour Good Luck hope this Helps

Wobbly tilt wheel


Remove horn pad . After removing the large nut SCRIBE A LINE ON THE CENTER SHAFT and the STEERING WHEEL, Using a steering wheel puller, remove steering wheel. Now comes the tricky part. Remove signal stalk ( just pull out a couple of inches ),and 4-way flasher knob. Disconnect multiple connector of signal switch. Remove 3 screws holing switch down. Gently pull upward on switch to expose lower steering bowl. The large bolts are LOOSE that secure it, so the reason for the wobble. Tighten bolts, and reverse procedure.

I had a 1992 chevy van There are 3 or 4 small bolts way down in the steering column you have to remove the steering wheel and blinker assembly with a long extesion and racket tighten all the bolts. You need to do it soon if you have the same problem or the steering wheel will come off if the bolts come all the way out

Broken tilt steering in a 1991 jeep cherokee


Yes it can be fixed, but it is a pain in the ****, done dozen's of them, hated every one. You are going to have to pull the steering wheel off and then remove the turn signal cam, under that you will find the screws to remove the upper bowl assembly (u will need to unplug turn signal harness at base of column), remove that, under that u will find the bolts for the tilt that have come loose
