You might try turning the wheel a little back and forth while you try to turn the key to unlock the steering wheel. Also, you could try jacking up the front end to get the wheels off the ground.

2002 2.2L engin 4 cylinder Pontiac grand am steering wheel don't lock after driving car. in park position and remove the keys. Steering wheel moves freely?? It's it the ignition switch going bad??


The ignition lock includes the steering wheel lock. It's possible that it just needs lubrication, or that the lock part has broken. In either case, taking the covers off the steering column sounds like your next move.

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.

Car is parked and off but unable to turn key in ignition and steering wheel is locked.


Try moving the steering wheel left and right as you turn the key - sometimes the steering lock will stick if there is pressure from the wheel. If this doesn't do it, try spraying or pouring some dry graphite into the lock cylinder ( the hole for the key) slide the key in and out of the lock quickly a few times to spread the graphite, then move the steering wheel left and right as you turn the key.
Hope this does it for you!

The key will turn far enough to start the accessories but will not move far enough to turn the engine on.


try turning steering wheel a bit, or move shifter up past park. Otherwise ignition may have a broken or stuck pin and will need to be replaced.

Steering shuttering 1999 ford explorer


This is usually caused from air in the power steering system. On more then one occasion i've experienced this after doing a brake job or an alignment. Because you turn the wheels with out the engine running you move power steering fluid throughout the system aerating it. The fix is to simply turn the wheel lock to lock repeatedly with the engine on and parked. This will "bleed" the system. Oddly Explorers are the only vehicle i've ever seen this happen to. Unfortunately it looks like you replaced the wheel bearing needlessly.

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.

2000 Toyota Camry - car ignition seems to be jammed or keys worn - has a transponder key just won't turn


What you have is the anti-theft portion of the steering column has became engaged. When you remove the key from the ignition, there is a pin that retracts, and, when the steering wheel is turned, this pin enters a hole in the column's steering shaft. This prevents the car from being "steered" if someone defeats the ignition switch, while trying to steal it. This locking function will not happen if the car is parked with the front wheels straight ahead; the only time the locking function occurs is when the steering wheel is turned left or right, as in parking whilst turning the steering wheel. This is a normal occurrance, the locking of the steering wheel, as it denies steering to potential theives.
SOLUTION: When the key will not turn, try to turn the steering wheel to the left of right (whichever way it is "turned" to), and, simultaneously, turn the key in the ignition. The "turning" of the wheel relaxes the tight fit of the pin into the hole, and then the key will turn, as it retracts the locking pin from the hole in the column. Hope this helps; and thank you for choosing FixYa!
