Question type: General

Check your car manual. This problem is covered, I think in the steering wheel section.


If the wheels are turned and or the car is parked on a grade this could cause the steering to bind up. Is the car an automatic or manual trans? I would try having a friend rock the car back and forth while you continue to attempt to unlock the steering with the key simultaneously.
