Use some elbow grease to pull and push the wheel whilst operating the key

Some times there is pressure against one of the front wheels keeping the locking mechinism engaged. Try to move the steering wheel back and forth while turning the key, if this dosn't work i'm afraid your off to the repair shop. good luck

SOURCE: my steering wheel is locked,

Is the front wheel jammed against a curb or rock so it cant move?

If so try to move the car a couple feet and try to unlock at the same time.

Good Luck

SOURCE: 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

How do you unlock the steering wheel without the keys ? so the car can be toed?


There might be a metal steering wheel lock release button under the dash in the steering column. but im not for sure on that. if you cant release it just get a flatbed tow truck. they will still be able to tow it.

As I got out of the car i grabbed the wheel and it moved left and clicked. Now I cant get the key to turn in ignition and wheel is locked. What do I do?


move the steering wheel while turning the key in the ignition and it should come unlocked. This happens sometimes, its just on a bind. Like i said just turn the steering wheel left and right the little bit that you can and the key will be able to turn.

Cant unlock steering wheel to start car


I would chalk that up to old age and wear and tear. I expect that when you take the steering column apart you will find a lot of play in the linkage between the ignition and the lock. These will probably be dealer only items to replace unless you can find them in a scrap yard. It will probably be easiest just to remove the lock mechanism and leave it that way. Just make sure that everything else works before you put the column back together.You may also be able to shim out the play with some time and patience if you can't find parts. Copper and brass work the best. Hope this helps.
