Why can't I unlock my ignition and start my car?


Put one hand on the steering wheel and rotate slightly left and right alternatively whilst turning the ignition key at the same time with the other hand. This might release the steering wheel and start ignition.

Hope this helps.

Steering wheel lock


Yes. It should lock when you turn the steering wheel when the ignition is locked. It should unlock when you turn the ignition on. If not get service.

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

Ignition locked on a 2000 Dodge intrepid


If you any other spare key, try with that key and see if it turns the ignition to unlock position.Try to turn the steering wheel to left and key to right side and try turning key to left an steering wheel to right side, try both ways and see if the key unlocks ignition.If that is not helping then try to wiggle the steering wheel and then insert key to unlock ignition.If that is also not helping then get wd-40 spray and spray the lubricant into key hole, and then let the spray remain there for few minutes then insert key in the key hole and see if it unlocks the ignition.------ If not then its problem with tumblers in the ignition switch, it has to be checked.For that ignition switch has to be removed and inspected.If ignition switch is inspected ok, then ignition key lock cylinder is faulty, it has to be replaced.Once the ignition switch is removed, the key lock cylinder can be accessed.----------- Getting this troubleshooting tried and this possibilities checked will help, thanks.Helpmech.

What can I do if will not go into park and I can not get my key out of ignition? 2000 dodge intrepid please help


check and see if the steering wheel is locked into place. if it is try turning the wheel a little more to see if you can get the key to turn to unlock the wheel. see if the key will come out with the wheel unlocked. you could try putting it into neutral and applying the parking brake. see if the key will come out. also you could try getting under the car and the should see a cable connected to a little lever on the transmission. push the lever to get it in to park. you can manually put the car in park from there. make sure you have the parking brake on and/or wheel chocks to make sure the car dosent roll on you.

Went to get in my car after just returning home from a 15 minute drive. key will not turn in ignition... lights work on car,


Try turning the steering wheel (hard) right and left while trying to turn the key. Steering lock and Ignition lock kind of work in conjunction. Also make sure vehicle is fully in park.

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.

Ignition Lock


This is a security function of the steering wheel. If you stop the car then turn the wheel until it clicks you have now locked the steering wheel, this helps prevent theft as the thief cannot turn the wheel.

Only by having your key in the ignition and turning the wheel can you 'unlock' the steering wheel making it safe to drive. If its becoming harder to unlock, it could be wearing down too much and the mechanical function will need replacement. I doubt it will need this though, most car sinces the 90's have steering wheel lock function standard, I've never seen one go wrong.
