Asked by Dec 01, 2014 at 10:09 PM about the 2012 Kia Rio EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My entire dash lights up and my steering wheel is frozen but my car starts and runs fine.  
I have replaced my alternator and my battery with no fix.  Not sure what is going on.  Has
anyone else had this problem or does anyone had an answer as to why this would be?  
Very frustrating.

There is a linkage that should lock the Gear selector and steering wheel when the key is in the off position The linkage is damaged or the key mechanism is broken Even if I got the steering wheel free I would not drive that car until the problem was corrected
