This is usually because of serious proload. Happens easily, with power assist....you shut down, now too hard to release.

So, you get the key ready and apply normal pressure to turn key.... then ARM STRONG the steering wheel, one way and the other. Somewhere in there, the key system should release.

2004 Toyota highlander steering wheel is locked but turned halfway, key wont turn and wheels are straight


there is a load on the lock pin in the steering column try turning the steering wheel a bit left or right to release the pin as you try turning the key.
Steering wheel locks never lock straight ahead as the idea is that if the car is being stolen it will turn a circle rather that move straight

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.

turn the steering wheel counter clockwise (to your left) forcefully. while holding the steering wheel, insert the key in the ignition switch and try to turn it on, if the key wont move, try to **** the steering wheel repeatedly while try to turn on the engine every ****.

I have a 2001 dodge stratus and the key wont turn


Have you tried moving the steering wheel while trying to turn the key? Many times when you lock the ignition there is pressure on the steering wheel lock. That pressure against the lock can prevent the key from turning. Move the wheel one way then the othe while turning the key. You may need to move the wheel with a lot of force. The wheel will move more one direction than the other. Hold force on the wheel when turning the key. If that is the problem the key will turn easily when the wheel takes the pressure off the lock. Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Key wouldn't turn on 2002 ford explorer b/c steering wheel seemed to be locked up.


This is common, if the wheel was turning at the time of the key being turn off it will put preasure on the wheel lock pin, this causes the lock to be diffuclt to turn, what happens is the steering wheel has a plate inside column, this plate has a lot of slots going around it, so when you turn the key off a pin comes up and goes into one of the slots that algin over it and if the wheel turns back the slot hits the pin with enough force to hold it, so when you turnn the key the linkage pulls the pin down bbut if its held the pin wont move and key wont turn unless you move the wheel which in turn moves the lock wheel away from pin, nothing is wrong its just something that happens,hope this helps.

IGNITION AND STEERING LOCKED!


Try pressing the key down little bit while you are trying to turn it towards ignition, at the same time slowly turning the steering wheel clockwise and counter clockwise ( it's locked but it still moves a little bit), it should release the steering wheel lock. hope it helps
p.s please rate the answer if you found it helpful, i need it for my ratings, thanks!

Locked steering wheel


Try having someone rock the car frontwards and backwards, while you rock the steering wheel back and forth and try to turn the key - it sounds like you're jammed up hard against the steering column lock.

Please rate if this is helpful!
