Question about 1999 Lexus LX470

1 Answer

1999 Lexus LX470 Steering Column Lock Assembly:

1999 Lexus LX470 Steering Column Lock Assembly (SCLA): My ignition crank shaft was broken inside the SCLA so I replaced the SCLA. I reattached the electronics to the SCLA and reinstalled the key cylinder with the SCLA ''inerds'' and the key cylinder (with key) set to 'Accessory.' My vehicle now starts with the key but the steering locks when rotating the wheel and then with a little tug will allow another rotation. Did I install the key cylinder incorrectly into the SCLA where it will not allow the locking mechinisum to disengage? Is there a proper way to do this? Is it finiky? Is there a proper orintation for installing the key cylinder? Do you hook up the electronics first or last with regard to the key cylinder? HELP!!!!

I'm in the middle of repairing this right now on my 2000. I noticed that in addition to the two anti-theft bolts that need to be removed, there is another bolt on top of the SCLA that when screwed all the way in, is supposed to align with a hole in a rotating assembly that is inside the steering column. I believe that if this is not aligned, then it won't hold the lock in place and when you turn the steering wheel you might get the behavior that you are seeing.

    OK I just completed this repair and the same thing happened to me. Remove the electronic pack from the rear of the SCLA. Take out the key cylinder. Use a pair of needle nose pliers to rotate the blade inside of the SCLA by 180 degrees. Reassemble and you should be good.

On my altima 96 when I'm parking or turning extremely slow the steering wheel somewhat locks


Hi, can you tell if it's the lock in the steering column or something with the power steering instead? If it feels like the power steering, check the belt for looseness and tighten as needed. If it feels like it's in the column, your locking assembly may be coming loose inside. Below is a procedure for removing the steering wheel lock for inspection. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The steering lock/ignition switch/warning buzzer switch assembly is attached to the steering column by special bolts whose heads shear off upon installation. The bolts must be drilled out to remove the assembly or be removed with an appropriate tool. The bolts may also be removed with a hammer and chisel by notching the bolts and tapping them counterclockwise with the hammer and chisel.
The ignition switch or warning switch can be replaced without removing the steering lock assembly. The ignition switch is on the back of the assembly and the warning switch is on the side.


CAUTION The models covered by this guide may be equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), which uses an air bag. Whenever working near any of the SRS components, such as the impact sensors, the air bag module, steering column and instrument panel, disable the SRS, as described in Chassis Electrical .

  1. Disable the air bag system by disconnecting the negative battery cable and waiting at least 10 minutes, prior to starting this procedure.
  2. Remove the steering column covers.
  3. Remove the steering wheel.
  4. Remove the spiral cable assembly.
  5. Remove the combination switch from the steering column.
  6. Remove the steering column support nuts and lower the steering column.
  7. Disconnect the ignition switch wiring.
  8. Remove the bolts that secure the steering lock and remove the steering lock assembly.

To install:
  1. Install the steering lock assembly and secure with new shear type bolts.
  2. Connect the ignition switch wiring harness.
  3. Raise the steering column and secure with mounting nuts. Tighten the mounting nuts to 11-14 ft. lbs. (15-19 Nm).
  4. Install the spiral cable assembly.
  5. Install the combination switch.
  6. Install the steering column covers.
  7. Install the steering wheel.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable.

I have 1999 lexus ls470 -- same problem -- ignition switch


Its usually NOT the lock cylinder on the 470s, its usually the housing. The cylinder is on the dash and points towards the engine. Behind the plastic dash panel (once removed) you will see it in fact sticks in an aluminum tube that goes down 2 or 3 inches, then makes 2 turns, left to attatch to the steering column, and right to attatch to the actual ignition switch. The gear and rod assembly that the cylinder attatches to that allows it to rotate the switch usually shatters in the middle and the key starts freewheeling because there is no longer any attatchment to any of the gears or springs or click points that youd usually feel as the rotational resistance. UNFORTUNATELY this is not a 5 minute job (If it was, cars would be a breeze to steal!). Youll need at least a lock cylinder housing (dealer stock em, they break all the tyme), and IF your cylinder is undamaged, change the housing (it bolts to the steering column and extends from column towards center console area where the ignition SWITCH is actually located). If your cylinder is damaged or the housing is so shredded you cant remove the lock cylinder by normal means...then youll also need the cylinder...and it will have to be recoded to the vehicle so the anti theft will allow the new keys/cylinder to start the car. If your old cylinder and keys are intact, then transfer them to the new housing and car wont even know it happened and should start up and work as normal. Some can be removed intact, some cant...depends on how yours broke.

The ignition crank shaft is broken inside the Steering Column Lock Assy. You will need to buy a new assy (cost appr. $202.21) and 2 steering lock bolts (cost appr. $4.96 ea) at a Toyota or Lexus dealer. Call either dealer for best price and availability. To replace you'll need to remove the black snap-on panel below speedometer then remove the screws securing the driver side dash. Behind the dash is a steel plate. Remove that and remove the steering column covers by turning the steering wheel to access the screws. You'll see that the SCLA is secured by 2 break-away bolt (this is an anti-theft feature). Use a dremel tool with cutting disc to make a notch in the screw head to remove with a flathead screwdriver. If this doesn't work your other option is to cut the bolts where the assy bolts together. Remove the broken SCLA and remove the key FOB and install into new SCLA. If your mechanically incline this should take about 2-3 hrs. and save you $300-400 in labor cost.
