The most common problem is that theres preasure on the lock, turn steering wheel hard to left and then right while trying to try the key, this will release preasure off the lock if this is the problem, good luck, hope this is helpful.

Do you have the wheels turned all the way in one direction? If so turn them more in the same direction and try turning the key.

How do I fix a locked steering wheel on 2013 Sequoia?


You may have to try turning the wheel while you turn the key. If your tire is against a curb it can force the steering lock and that will make it hard to unlock the steering column. You may have to turn hard to get it unlocked.

My car can not turn the steering wheel


The steering wheel is under pressure from turning the steering when stopped.
Turn the steering wheel slightly so the pressure is released from the ignition lock and you will able to then turn the ignition key to unlock the steering wheel.

Steering wheel is locked cant find pin to unlock it


Its going to be inside the steering column near the ignition switch. When you turn the ignition it unlocks the steering lock. You can't really manually unlock it unless you break the lock system

Steering wheel locked how to unlock


HI,
is the vehicle on a full steerring lock left or right?
Apply the parking brake, Trans in P / N.
Insert the ign key.
Place one hand on the rim of the steering wheel and "rock" the wheel as you attempt to turn the ign key. You will feel the pressure against the steering wheel, keep "rocking" it and it should unlock as you work the ign lock.

Good luck.

Turn the wheel slightly towards the direction you last turned it in and hold it there. This will remove the friction against the key lock, allowing you to turn the key and unlock the steering coulomb.

The steering coulomb lock is a safety feature that keeps criminals from driving off with your car in the event that they hotwire it. It locks the wheel slightly to the left or right, so they will only go in circles.

Key won't turn in the ignition and the steering wheel is locked


In hope that you have the right key, put him in, try to turn the steering wheel a little bit at the same time you try to unlock the ignition.Sometimes it's possible that you've used your steering wheel as help wile getting out of the car. At this case, maybe the wheel lock snaps in, but the wheels are under pressure from the ground. Now you want to unlock your car at it seams that the key wont turn. The wheels get pressure from the ground, so the whole steering is under pressure and your steering wheel pressed against the locker block. If you try to turn the locked steering wheel, you'll see that it turns appr. 1" to one side. This is the needed space to unlock with the key. I hope that works in your case.

Steering wheel is locked nd wont unlock even with


Typically, the steering is preloaded. This happens when car is turned off with some steering assist being applied (whether you know it or not).

Often you have to manhandle the wheel in one direction or the other while turning the key.
