When I turn the steering wheel it goes stiff and then free's up and then stiff again. Within 360 degrees it will do it 3 to 4 time in the same direction and in both directions. I've changed the oil and no difference. It started after I had it at the dealers for an unrelated problem. It was ok for a while and after the car sets for 2 to 3 days it atarts all over again. What do you think it is.

Ket stuck in ignition and will not turn or come out


Remove the steering column cowling and spray lubricant into whatever places can be reached. A gentle tapping on the lock body while rocking the steering wheel side-to-side and attempting to work the key might eventually free it and allow it to work, although even if it does the lock and key should be replaced to ensure reliability.

If it does not free the lock will have to be removed by the prescribed method and a new one fitted.

Horn goes off every time i turn car on


Possible that the line to the horn relay from the steering wheel is delinked or that the relay circuit has faults. You need to use a multimeter to trace the voltage to the relay, check with power on or the steering wheel turned.

I would replace the clock spring rotating contact drum under the steering wheel for the restraint system warning light issues and check the operation of the headlight sensor when the lights will not go off, this is likely a sticking relay.

This is definitely a power steering problem. I had this same problem about a year ago. I had to get my Power Steering Rack replaced, this fixed the noise and problem. You can add power steering fluid as a temporary fix, but your problem will not permanently go away. You are probably leaking fluid out of your steering rack.

The sound that you are hearing probably happens more often when you are acclerating around a turn, right?? Does it sound like a little foreign car in reverse?? Also, the wheel may be a little stiff when first starting out.
