Hi the chances are the steering lock has locked in a funny position and this is causing it to stay locked.
what you need to do is put the key in the ignition then get hold of the steering wheel and turn it to the left and right as hard as you can whilst turning the key when the steering wheel is turned one way it should unlock the lock and allow you to drive your vehicle.

the wheel may be hard to turn so have the key in the ignition the turn the steering wheel quite hard whilst turning the key doing this should get the lock off and allow you to drive.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

also try putting the key in the other way round as it might be wore on the one side so also give that a try.

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Locked steering wheel


Need more info but try wiggling steering wheel back n forth while turning key. Also add a light lubricant such as 10W40 to lock cylinder and wiggle key. Check if key is worn or another key if possible.

I have had trouble starting my Chevy blazer 2001, before it would feel like the ignition would get stuck, now the key won't turn either way and the steering wheel is locked and I can't turn it on


Try turning the steering wheel hard in each direction while trying to turn key. Wheel lock may be holding key. If not, sounds like you need to replace ignition lock cylinder or the ignition switch. Good luck, DW

My 2001 Chevy Blazer has been parked for 9 months and the battery died. Before i replaced the battery the Steering Wheel was locked. I have replaced the battery and the steering wheel is still locked and i...


  1. Put the key into ignition and turn the key to On, but don't start the engine.
  2. Next, turn the wheel to the direction that it got stuck in as far as it will go.
  3. If it is still stuck, turn the wheel the other direction as far as it will go.
  4. If it is STILL stuck, take the steering wheel off and all the hardware. There should be a plate that has a small rod, no more than 2" long going though it. That's the lock. Pull it out and it won't lock anymore.

Key ignition wont turn, why?


Your steering wheel could be turned and the vehicle sitting in such a way the the steering wheel is putting pressure on the column lock. Pull the wheel one way or the other and see if that frees it up. Good luck.
