How To Unlock A Steering Wheel

Range Rover steering wheel and dashboard

Have you ever tried to start your car in Phoenix and realized the steering wheel and steering column are locked? If you are having problems starting your vehicle or you notice when you put the key into the ignition that it won’t turn, your steering wheel may have become locked. Find out how to get it unlocked with our tips at Land Rover Chandler, and contact our Land Rover Service Center with any questions.

How to Unlock Your Steering Wheel: Tips and Tricks

If you’re not sure how to lock your steering wheel in the first place, figuring out how to get it unstuck can be frustrating. This issue is common with power steering and can become locked if you’ve parked and turned off the car with the steering wheel left turned all the way to one side or the other. Try some of these tips to get your steering wheel unstuck:

  • Don’t Jerk the Wheel: Don’t try to yank or turn the wheel forcefully, as it could damage parts of the steering mechanism. Instead, insert the key and turn the key to the “on” position. Then use different amounts of pressure wiggling the wheel from side to side to try to unlock it.
  • Try Different Techniques: If the key won’t turn to the “on” position, slowly turn it in the ignition with one hand and slowly move the steering wheel back and forth with your other. This may realign the steering components and unlock the wheel.
  • Try Using a Different Key: If your key isn’t working, it might be good to test it out with a secondary set of keys or have your local Land Rover dealership make a new one. It’s possible that the key won’t turn because it has warped or eroded over time and won’t engage your vehicle’s tumblers.
