I have a 1992 Oldsmobile 98 the car and everything runs fine I stopped my car to get gas and now when I try to turn the key it wont even turn in the ignition how do i make it turn to fire the car up


Try giving the steering wheel a wriggle left and right as you turn the wheel. Sometimes the steering lock pin has to much force on it to move easily.
Other than that the gears on the starter rod may have jumped or warn and will not mesh. That would require the steering wheel to be removed to fix.

What is wrong with my ignition,when I put the key in it won't turn ?


I have seen this on many vehicles. It is entirely possible that when you last parked and shut it off you had the steering wheel turned to the left or right rather than centered straight ahead. The power steering was assisting with holding it in that position until you shut it off. At that time power assist stopped and the wheel is resting firmly against the theft lock mechanism. Grasp the steering wheel firmly and if your front wheels are pointed to the left then force the steering wheel to the left a bit more and turn the key will holding the wheel, if front wheels are to the pointing to the right then force the steering wheel to the right and turn the key. Try NOT to turn off the ignition with the wheels not pointed straight.

Key wont turn


try turning the steering wheel hard over left or right (both) while trying to turn the key with the normal amount of force. (never force the key)
most likely, it is just the steering wheel lock stopping the key from rolling forward.

Locks up


Hi,
1. Ensure the gearshift lever is fully in Park. Put foot on brake and move lever fully into Park and try to turn key.

2. Ensure steering wheel isn't locked. Put key in and turn steering wheel to the left and/or right to see if key will turn.

DO NOT FORCE KEY or it may break!

My key wont turn in the ingnition of my 1998 toyota avalon


Hi, the problem you could be having is with the steering lock, if this has locked in a funny position it can be hard to get it to unlock.

what you need to do is when you put the key in try turning the steering wheel left and right as far as it will go whilst turning the key to on position, now its going to be hard to move so you will need to use some force turning the wheel try turning it left whilst turning the key forwards and backwards and the same turning right, once the steering wheel has moved this should allow the key to turn and you will be able to start you car.

let me know if it fails to work then i can assist you further ok

plz rate this solution as i have got a whole page of posts that have gone unrated, thanks

How do you get a stearing colum unlock and the


hi if the problem is that the lock has locked and wont free when you try and turn the ignition on then what you should try is turning the steering wheel from left to right as hard as you can whilst you try turning the key, the problem is usually that the lock is under pressure from the tyres trying to turn the steering wheel so with this pressure on the lock the key just wont turn so you need to try and release this pressure so that the key will turn and unlock the lock.

so hold the steering wheel tight and turn it left using a bit of pressure whilst you keep trying to turn the key dont hold the key in the same possition as this wont free the lock keep turning the key on and off so that it resets and this should then allow the lock to free and you should be able to start your car, if turning the steering wheel left dont work then try right and repeat with the key on and off until the lock is off and the steering is free.

now it is going to be tight so you will need some force to turn the steering wheel as the force from the tyres will be quite alot so you will need to use force to work the steering wheel left and right whilst turning the key.

now if this still dont work then this will either mean you have a problem with the key or the actual ignition barrel has got a fault if this is the case then your going to need to get a new igniton barrel, the part the key goes into before the lock will free itself, all you need to do to remove the barrel is to remove the cover from the steering wheel surround and then you will see how the barrel comes out of its surround but dont do this until you have a new lock in case you forget how you got it apart.

the chances are the lock is just stuck and working the steering wheel left then right as far as you can will free it up if it dont then you can also try jacking the 2 front wheels off the floor like put the car on stands then try turning the steering left and right to unlock the ignition doing it this way releases the pressure from the tyres and should make it easier to unlock the steering.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

The steering column sounds locked. Try turning the steering wheel all the way left or right till you hear it unlock or until the key can turn. Note; You must use force to unlock the steering column and don't be scared because it won't break anything.
