    I have a 2001 focus that stranded me with same problem. Had to drill out lock and install a new one. Be sure to get locksmith to key new lock for your original keys. They might try to tell you that you will have to get new keys, and get them programmed. Dont fall for this, it is unnessary.

I have a 2004 buick rendezvous and my steering wheel is locked up and my key wont turn. my battery was dead so got a new battery and still cant get my key to turn, its all locked up


Make sure it's in park. Hold the wheel snug against the stop, first one way, then the other, to take pressure off the wheel/key lock while trying to turn the key.

MY BOOT HAS BEEN SHUT SINCE WE HAD ALL THE SNOW AND NOW I CANT OPEN IT , WITH KEY REMOTE OR THE KEY ITSELF,ALL THE DOORS WORK FINE, AND I HAVE A A6 SALOON 2002 SO THE SEATS DONT GO DOWN. JOHN


if you cant turn the key in the trunk lock : use a thin oil, something like sewing machine oil, and squirt it in to the key hole, run the key back and forth in the hole then squirt some more, repeat until you can turn the key,
if you can turn the key and it wont open, then i cant help you, you could try to remove the back seats to gain access,(removing the bolts and removing them that way)

I cant turn the ignition or move the steering wheel on my 2003 nissan altima. When I insert the key I get the usual sound but I cant turn the key at all, and the steering wheel seems like its stuck.


i think there is a ignition problem , might try replacing it , of course you cant turn the steering if the key wont turn , its a theft prevention device.
