Yikes, no keys?

I don't know if you can unlock the steering wheel without keys, without breaking something.

Good luck to you.

2009Element my cars ignition has locked steering wheel also ,my key wont turn it ,how do i reset the antithieft to unlock it


The anti-theft has nothing to do with the steering wheel and key not turning. Most commonly the steering wheel is under tension which puts extra force on the steering wheel lock mechanism that is released when the key is turned. Try turning the wheel both ways while trying to turn the key to see if it will release. If the wheel has a little bit of play while you turn it back and forth that it is probable the lock cylinder that has failed.

What can I do to unlock the steering column on my 1996 Toyota Camry?


When the car started rolling it locked it up tight. Try putting the car in neutral, put the key in and push against the car in the opposite direction that it rolled while you turn the key and jerk on the steering wheel. You will need to slightly roll the car back to get it unlocked. Get a buddy to help you push the car if you can.

How do you get a 2002 pt cruiser into neutral without a key its an automatic


Without disconnecting the linkage you don't. You would have to disconnect the linkage and put it in neutral manually. If your trying to tow the vehicle it is better to put the front wheels on a dolly or lift from the front. Towing a front wheel drive with the wheels on the pavement is not usually a good thing as it tends to damage the transmission. If you have no choice but to tow it with all 4 wheels on the ground you will have to disconnect the linkage and put it in Neutral manually or use the key to unlock the steering and shifter assembly and tie the steering. If your worried about battery drain with the ignition in the on position disconnect the negative battery terminal.

My 1998 Dodge Caravan key will not turn over steering wheel is locked as well as brakes..how can i unlock it to be able to put in neutral???


if the steering wheel is turn all the way one way and locked by the steering wheel lock then you will have to turn the steering wheel more and try turning the key.sometimes when the steering wheel is turned all the way one way and locked the pressure that is against the lock will sometimes not allow the key to turn.if the wheel is in the straight ahead position it may be the ignition key lock is worn and needs replacing.

What can I do if will not go into park and I can not get my key out of ignition? 2000 dodge intrepid please help


check and see if the steering wheel is locked into place. if it is try turning the wheel a little more to see if you can get the key to turn to unlock the wheel. see if the key will come out with the wheel unlocked. you could try putting it into neutral and applying the parking brake. see if the key will come out. also you could try getting under the car and the should see a cable connected to a little lever on the transmission. push the lever to get it in to park. you can manually put the car in park from there. make sure you have the parking brake on and/or wheel chocks to make sure the car dosent roll on you.

Theft light is flashing steering wheel is locked and car won't start


First thing to do is take the key and manually lock and unlock the door.
See if that fixes everything.
If the steering remains locked try pulling it hard while you try the key
Can you put the transmission in neutral
Try a different key
Try smacking the key into the lock lightly
Hopefully one of the tips will work for you

Key won't turn in the ignition and the steering wheel is locked


In hope that you have the right key, put him in, try to turn the steering wheel a little bit at the same time you try to unlock the ignition.Sometimes it's possible that you've used your steering wheel as help wile getting out of the car. At this case, maybe the wheel lock snaps in, but the wheels are under pressure from the ground. Now you want to unlock your car at it seams that the key wont turn. The wheels get pressure from the ground, so the whole steering is under pressure and your steering wheel pressed against the locker block. If you try to turn the locked steering wheel, you'll see that it turns appr. 1" to one side. This is the needed space to unlock with the key. I hope that works in your case.

Ignition Lock


This is a security function of the steering wheel. If you stop the car then turn the wheel until it clicks you have now locked the steering wheel, this helps prevent theft as the thief cannot turn the wheel.

Only by having your key in the ignition and turning the wheel can you 'unlock' the steering wheel making it safe to drive. If its becoming harder to unlock, it could be wearing down too much and the mechanical function will need replacement. I doubt it will need this though, most car sinces the 90's have steering wheel lock function standard, I've never seen one go wrong.
