SOURCE: A4 steering lock does not engage and car won't turn over

The steering locks don't necessarily engage when the key is removed, I always turn the wheel before exiting to engage it. There are several positions that will allow the pin to lock in but if between these, it may seem that it isn't locked.

All you need to do is turn your steering wheel to the left all the way till it stops then put your key in while still holding the steering wheel to the left, turn the key to the on position this should release your steering wheel!

SOURCE: play in the steering wheel column after position adjustment

When they did the alignment it's possible that they used a tool that locks the steering wheel straight while it's on the alignment rack.If they put too much pressure on the wheel when they used the steering wheel seat lock tool it may have stressed you tilt lock mech causing it not to lock where you want it.Hope this helps

SOURCE: the key wont turn and neither will the steering wheel

Sounds like the steering column lock is stuck. Look at the front wheels and see which way they are turned. Then get in the car and turn the steering wheel in the same direction while wiggling the key. Put enough pressure on the steering wheel to take the pressure off of the steering lock but not enough to damage anything. The key and wheel should release.

Can't turn ignition and steering is stuck on Peugeot 307. What do I do?


your steering wheel is turned excessively causing pressure on the mechanism. Turn steering wheel to relieve pressure off lock mechanism (about 1/8 inch) while turning key

I have a 95 camaro, I put the key in ignition and it will not turn the ignition. It's like it's stuck. Replaced the ignition module and still cannot turn ignition. Help!


the ignition module (ignition switch on top of the steering column) normally doesn't get stuck.

things you can try:
steering wheel lock: (the pin gets a "burr" on it and locks everything up) wiggle steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn key.

transmission lock (parking on an incline will jam up the interlock)
push the shifter farther into park while trying to turn the key, or wiggle shifter

Ignition switch for 2000 jeep grand cherokee is stuck


I'm going to answer this question since I don't know how the security system would affect the lock.
If you can get the key out of the lock, you may want to spray some WD40 or other lube in the slot where the key goes.
If that does not help, you should be able to drop the cover from under the steering wheel and disconnect the switch from the lock cylinder.
If the lock is still stuck, it may have damaged tumblers or something may be jammed with the shifter and steering wheel lock.

Kia rio steering wheel is locked and won't turn


Okay, I just had this same problem with my 2009 Kia Rio and I did this. So not to down everyone's post on here -- everyone is correct -- by turning the steering wheel back and forth and turning the ignition key at the same time is a correct method. However, after talking to a Kia Serviceman, he told me you have to do it hard -- meaning turning it violently back and forth hard (madman style). In order to do this operation, I had my wife sit in the driver side and turn the key while I was on her left side grabbing the steering wheel and violent moving it back and forth like a madman, and after about 2mins of doing it the key turned over -- problem fixed. Do not worry about breaking anything; turning the steering wheel violently hard is a must -- this was told to me by a Kia service Rep. Remember -- have someone assist you; either turning the key or violently turning the steering wheel back and forth. Hope this works for you!!!!!

Ignition and steering wheel on 1996 Corsica are locked.


Your key or the lock cylinder may be overly worn, to the extent that the key no longer moves the pins to the correct positions to allow the cylinder to rotate.

Assuming that the lock cylinder hasn't been progressively getting more difficult to turn, you may be able to aggressively rotate the steering wheel against the lock back and forth while attempting to rotate the key to disengage a frozen steering lock.

Shake in steering wheel


I believe you need your disk brake rotors turned to be true again or have them replaced. Whe you use your brakes a lot and kit puddles of cold water then it will warp the rotors which will cause the violent shaking. You may not feel it in the brake pedal even if it is warped rotors. If you don't think you have warped rotors then you should be very careful driving it because it will probably be in the steering sector arm or the idler arm on the steering shaft.
