Question about 1999 Lexus Gs 300
When I turn off my car, the steering wheel goes back into place and tilts the entire way upwards. It continues to get stuck in this position which makes it very difficult to drive. How can I disable this feature? Is states in the manual that it can be done but does not explain how to do it.
in order to fix this you will need a steering wheel puller and a press I can't remember the name of it but once you get the wheel off you have to press the ring and then get the lock off and then it is pretty simple you can do it with a flat bar and some sockets bot the proper tools are cheap enough that they are always handy

SOURCE: tilt steering play
i have the same problem with mine several times you have to pull the steering off and the spring loaded plate behind the wheel then set back in the column there are 3 torx type fine thread screws you have to tighten and this will take care of the side to side of the tilt wheel if not tightened properly you will have to repeat this procedure again and again good luck

Open the gear motor on the left hand side of the telelscopic assembly. Take the plate off held by 4 philips screws. Using a 10mm socket, remove the bolt holding the platic gear. Remove plastic gear and insert the reverse way. Over the years, one side of the gears get worn out.

there are a few diodes in the electrical system that have been blown. Some are in the dash and some are in the different control modules in the car. Your insurance should pay for this problem.

Yes it would be perfectly ok to disegauge the auto switch to keep it from moving again. It needs a tilt motor replaced . not a easy job.
