Verify that the Tilt Lever is properly installed. Pull it straight out and push it back in.

Verify that the shoe is not seized in the pivot pins,
Inspect the pivot pins for binding.

Tilt wheel stuck I the up postion,How do you fix it

This happens with my ram. The tilt wheel locking pin is stuck. When this happens to me i have to wiggle my steering wheel up and down and pull on the tilt release lever at the same time until the locking pin slides out of it's locked position. I have found that if i do not lock the wheel in the max up or max down position i do not have this problem.

Head lights go out when tilt steering wheel is tilted

You have a bad connection up underneath the steering wheel stem and the dashboard connectors. Hopefully it is just a connector that has come unlocked. Lay the seat flat and lie on the seat on your back with a good flashlight. Look up underneath. If you can't see anything, you need a good auto-electrician.

Stuck electric tilt steering - Is there a manual over ride?

My 2002 millenia did the same thing. My mechanic friend had me take a screw drive and go under the steering wheel where there is an opening and tap up in there. Then my steering wheel came back down. I did however turn off the auto after that. The motor is going bad.

Steering wheel up and down adjuster is jammed

Thank you for your question.
Let me try to assist...The tilt mechanisms are very reliable, and we experience very few failures. However, I have had to release a couple in the last few years...More than likely, the mechanism may just be loose, or bound up, as you have stated that it is in the highest position. Here is what you need to do: Under the steering column, remove the screws holding the lower plastic on. Seperate the bottom half from the top half, and set it aside. Remove the top half of the colum cover. Now, examine the tilt mechanism for loose bolts, or anything that may not move with the adjuster lever.
Sometimes, moving the adjuster lever and janking down on the wheel releases the bind, also.
I hope that this helps with your issue.
