How do I release the steering wheel lock with the key?
When your car is turned off, the steering wheel will sometimes lock as a safety precaution. During this time, the steering wheel will barely move, and the car cannot be turned on. To release the steering wheel lock, insert the key, and try to turn it clockwise while rotating the steering wheel back and forth. When the steering wheel releases, the vehicle can be turned on.
