2012 Volkswagen steering wheel is locked. I have tried everything. Turning left and right and jiggling the key. Nothing happens. ANy suggestions?
My car has 80000 miles.
My car's transmission is unknown to me.
I would recommend attempting this again to see if you can release the ignition. If you cannot release the steering wheel, I would then ask someone who is larger than you who may have more strength to try. If they are unable to get the wheel unlocked, I would recommend having your vehicle inspected by a qualified professional to determine if the ignition lock cylinder has failed.
If the lock cylinder has failed, I would recommend having it replaced at your earliest convenience. The new lock cylinder will always come with a new ignition key. Once the lock cylinder has been replaced, the issue you are having should be resolved. Be sure to have a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect the steering wheel to determine what is causing the it to lock up.
