There is a couple of rods on the left side of the colum.
take the panel of, put the key on the ignition. switch on and see wich rod is moving and thats the one that goes to a box type switch.
that switch is the problem, either is loose or faulty, if it wiggles try to tighten it up, if is tight then the switch is faulty and you will have to replace it, you can find it at any parts store

dont try removing the steering wheel as the airbag will cause this to be a problem , adjust the tracking until the wheel is in the position you want , make sure you adjust the track rods equally on each side , this is a little bit of trial and error if your doing it your self ,

I have a 2002 chrysler concorde. When i park the car if the wheels are turned to the right, the car wont start because the car wont show park or neutral. Even if the shift is in park the car wont register...


IT could still be the neutral switch that is not adjusted properly and registering the straight ahead position but if you have a column shift I would say that the neutral switch is way out of adjustment as the switch works off the selector position and not where the wheels are pointing.

I have a 2000 dodge intrepid. The alarm never worked on it. We bought it used and all of a sudden when we go to unlock the door it turns on. Now the car won't start. I've looked online for answers and...


The 2000 Dodge Intrepid is equipped with an alarm system that is triggered when unauthorized entry is attempted. In some situations, such as having the Intrepid valet parked or when it is being serviced by a mechanic, the alarm system needs to be disarmed so it doesn't go off. Disarming the alarm will prevent it from being activated until it is armed again.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions

  1. 1 Insert the key into the ignition.
  2. 2 Turn the ignition switch to "ON." Do not start the engine.
  3. 3 Press and hold the valet/override button within five seconds of turning the ignition on. The valet button is located beneath the steering column.
  4. 4 Release the valet/override button after the security indicator light turns off.
  5. 5 Turn the ignition switch off.

Steering is really stiff after replacing power steering pump on 2000 chrysler cirrus??


Is the drive belt adjusted properly. Did you bleed all air from the system after installing the pump? Start the engine and turn the steering wheel from left to right fully 10 times. This will remove any trapped air. Check the fluid level and top it off.

Neither turn signal nor the emergency flashers work. Fuses ok


sounds like the flasher relay has failed. This is usually situated underneath the top of the steering column which is accessed by undoing a couple of screws. Many flasher relays are box shaped and have 3 flat pins that plug into a socket. Basically it's a switch and it's very common for them to fail as they are used daily and will eventually fail. A temporary solution until you manage to locate a new one (which shouldn't be difficult) is to whack the top of the steering wheel shroud likely the surrounding area of where the emergency flasher switch is

Steering column frozen


You may have bound the steering wheel up against the locking mechanism.

Put the key in the ignition, and try to turn, while attempting to rotate the steering wheel to the left or right. When you rotate it the right direction, the key will turn fully and you can start the car.

Steering Wheel Locked


Being a locksmith for ten years, I have been aquainted with a number of occasions where the steering wheel gets locked up.
Always start with the least expensive option.
Question:

I'm sure this sounds silly but, have you tried turning the wheel hard right and hard left? You wouldn't believe how many times people have their tires turned to the right or left, which binds the ignition switch to the point that you can't turn the key to start the vehicle.

If the steering is in a rotational bind it can also bind the "U" joint in the steering column.

Check to make sure that you can actually operate the key cylinder and start the vehicle.

If you can operate the key cylinder of the ignition and start the vehicle, try rotating the steering wheel with the engine running, and see if that will unlock your "U"joint adjuster.

If you do all of the above and it's still unable to be adjusted, you will have to have a locksmith replace the universal joint rod in the steering column.

The main reason for these joints to fail is due to people driving with the column in an attitude of either up from the straight position, or down from the straight position.

The column is "designed" to operate from any position, BUT it causes the joint to fail due to prolonged use in an either up or down position while driving. The adjustable wheel is great for getting into and out of the vehicle, but it should always be driven in a totally straight position with NO upward or downward slant to the steering column.

I hope this will solve your problem economically.
