KEY WONT TURN IN IGNITION


OK, obvious first: turn it the other way. Don't laugh, I've done this.

Otherwise, barrel is jammed. Get a new barrel, dismantle the steering column and replace the existing one. You'll now need two keys: one to unlock the car and one for the ignition. You won't be the first.

Reset oil light


If you have steering wheel controls you can reset it by getting to the oil life indicator (mine is on the left side lower button menu when wheel is facing forward). Then press the arrow button for a few seconds to reset it. If you don't have steering wheel controls you can reset it by turning key to on position but don't start vehicle. Press gas pedal all the way to the floor three times (some say 6 times). Turn key off. Oil life should be reset went you start engine next time. I hope this works for you.

Key won't release from cylinder


This is cause from the automatic steering lock mechanism. Let me give you a little secret that 99% of the time fixes this.

Let me explain. The design is suppose to work like this. You get out into your car, put the key in and slightly turn the wheel to the left and it unlock the steering mechanize. BUT sometimes it gets jammed, like in your case. There are two ways to get this unlocked or jammed to get your key out. Number one is, while key is in of course, really try hard to move your steering wheel back and forth to unlock this jam in steering wheel lock mechanize. On small cars this normally works. But here is my big secret that will help you, it sounds funny but works 99% of the time.

What you do, is you need to get the weight of the front wheels, as that is what needs to be turned and eases the tension off the wheels, to turn wheel a inch of so, until the mechanism release to pull key out. So, This sounds funny, but works. Jack up the front of your Blazer, and after front end is jacked up, so wheels are off ground, then try and turn wheel hard and pull key out. I assure you, sounds funny but works. If not, then you have a broken key ignition, but I would not worry about that, just follow my instructions on the jack up method. Please if this helps you, maybe you can rate my help and a positive testimony would be nice for this free advice and solution. Thanks Mike

How do u unlock steering wheel without key


Call a locksmith, or get another key made from the dealer by using the keycode---it's much easier and you won't tear up half the steering column.

I have locked the steering wheel, how do I unlock it. Now the car is immobilized and I can't start the engine


You may have to use a little muscle here. When this happens, turning you steering wheel to the left usually will release the ignition lock cylinder so tha you can turn the key. Make sure you hold the steering wheel once you have turned it. Keep in mind, it won't turn very far. One side you turn to will feel like it hit something solid, the other side you turn to will be the unlock side.

So
Turn steering wheel and hold until you are able to turn the key. It will take a bit of effort on your part, but that should get it back going.

When I put the key in and hold the steering wheel it won't unlock and my key won't turn


the steering wheel has a locking devise released by the key when starting, at times the wheel is turned in a way that keeps pressure on the lock that makes turning the key harder, this is the same in most cars, so a little jiggle of the wheel will make turning the key much easier, please take a moment to rate my reply Good Luck

I can't start my honda accord. the steering wheel is locked


Gently rock the steering wheel back and forth against each place it stops while trying to turn the key. DON"T use any force here! You may consider shooting a spray lube into the key slot also.
