Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car started up just fine, when I decided to take it to the store. But, when I got done with my shopping. Ignition Switch would absolute not turn, so I could start my engine. Tried moving my steering while back and forth to get my ignition Switch to engage. But, this absolutely would not work. Called up a tow truck. But had a hell of a problem getting it on the trailer. Both front and rear wheels was locked up. Tried to put in nuturel and it was lock up also. So could any on please explain to me. What could be the mater with my Automobile.

1 Answer


It's probably an easy troubleshoot... just oscillate the ignition three or four times from acc power to off, and look directly at the center of the steering wheel. If the middle of the wheel says "ford", go to the "how to sell my car" section of this website.
