The only way would be to remove the key tumblar assembly from the column itself, You won't be able to just get the tumblar without the key so you will have to remove the headless bolt that clamp it to the column. The easiest way to do the is to use a dremel and cut a slot in the two tops of those bolts and unscrew them with a large flathead screwdriver(they usual aren't very tight

Did you pull ******* the steering wheel on the direction that it is locked? Usually rare... But I have seen the springs go bad with the tumblers in the key cylinder. You could attempt to thump under the key cylinder to attempt to bounce the tumblers while moving the key back and forth.

well hate to be the bearer of bad news but that is exactly what needs to be done. try turning the key and forcefully moving steering wheel from side to side. if needed get someone to help you moving the wheel but you must be turninf the key at the same time in order to unlock. this is common and happens when you turn the wheel while key is in the off posoition or out of ignition, perhaps grabbing on steering wheel while entering or exiting vehicle. good luck.

Pull the steering wheel alittle hard til you can feel it move from stop to stop. Hold it in the center of that little bit of feeplay and then turn the key. It should unlock the wheel.

My key wont turn, so i cant move my car how can i fix this? we have moved the steering wheel shitloads to unlock it. i think my friend may have put a different key in and its now jammed?


without taking the steering column apart, I would first try to get the key out of the steering wheel by turning steering wheel back and forth, don't worry about putting some effort into it. keep the steering wheel moving and turn the key back and forth at the same time. It might take some time but its the only way to get the key out of lock position.

My ateering wheel lock and can not unlocked


If you find you can not unlock your steering column after parking you need to try to pull your steering wheel either to the left or to the right, and it will move an inch or two in one direction or the other. You may have to pull on it with a good effort but do not reef on it or start to bang on it, it will turn a short distance in one direction or the other. After moving it one direction or the other you should then be able to turn the key to unlock the ignition. This happens usually when you park against something while your tires are turned. You turn off the ignition and the power steering pump powers down and releases the pressure to the wheel and puts pressure on your key tumbler or the ignition lock and you can't turn it. It happens on all vehicles. the best way to ensure this does not happen is to have your wheels straight and let go of your steering wheel before you turn off your vehicle.

Cannot get the key to turn engine on without really trying to turn the steering wheel - now happening daily.


do you mean to unlock it beause its got hard & when you move the steering wheel it unlocks!
if so its because the steering column where the lock mechanism fits is worn or has burrs on it from all the use its had over time!

Key In Ignition Won't Move 2002 Chrysler Town & Country


The steering column sounds locked. Try turning the steering wheel all the way left or right till you hear it unlock or until the key can turn. Note; You must use force to unlock the steering column and don't be scared because it won't break anything.
