My 2005 buick rendezvous has been attempted to be stolen cant start it with key

if they tried to pull the wheel lock located in the steering colum. they may have damaged the key sensor that read you security codes off the key. which means you`ll need to replace the key sensor in the colum. Unless they pulled a wire off under the steering colum. look down the steering colum and up underneath and see if there are any plugs out. PS some cars are designed of extra accessories which case you may find a few plugs away from the colum that aren`t connected to any thing these won`t be the issue but.

I have brought a second hand lockset for my suzuki sj samurai (Ignition lock, both door locks and the tailgate lock and matching key) and i need to replace all of them as i have lost my key and cant get a...

The fastest thing to do is to take one of the locks to a locksmith and have them make a key from it.This will save a lot of time and disassembly.If you still want to change all the locks,you will have to figure out how to remove the door trim panels,disassemble the steering colum,etc.(every vehicle is a little different,never worked on a Samurai myself)

sometimes you have to turn the steering wheel all the way to the left or right to free the colum, its happened to me before.
usually it comes loose and your able to turn the key.

Warning light looks like a steering wheel with lock on it yellow in colour

Maybe the power steering oil level is low. You may want read the owners manual, that should tell you what all those symbols mean.
