Steering wheel lock is a common problem. The first step is to determine the position of your front wheel; check to see what direction they are facing, left, right, or straight. Also, examine if the wheels are touching the curb.
Make sure you are sitting in the driver’s seat. Apply turning pressure on the steering wheel in the same direction; where the front wheels are pointed. For example, if front wheels are pointing to the right, apply turning pressure to the right. While holding the turning pressure on the steering wheel (do not release this pressure); turn the key in the ignition.
If the key does not turn, attempt the same method to the opposite direction. Remember, you are trying to remove the steering locks pressure; from your ignition lock cylinder. If turning in the opposite direction does not allow you to start your ignition; you may be facing an ignition lock cylinder problem.
Steering wheel lock problems can be with all makes, however European vehicles such as Mercedes-Benz, VW, Audi, BMW, and Volvo; are more prone to what we like to call ‘severe lock syndrome’. On the other hand, because American and Japanese vehicles are less likely to suffer severe lock syndrome; they are more prone to ignition lock cylinder problem.
If the above steps do not provide any relief to your steering wheel lock problem; there is a possibility that you may be facing an ignition lock cylinder problem. We are always here to help – call Ontario Waterloo Locks Smiths right now; and we will be at your service in 20 minutes!
