Q: Q: Steering wheel lock system prevents my car from start

asked by on

So my car has this problem since 5 months ago. I tried to call nissan but they are not very helpful and not friendly at all. So i have problem with my car for the steering wheel lock system that won't let me start the engine. This problem is part of the electrical problem. I have the reference from many forum about this problem, http://www.the370z.com/diy-section-do-yourself/55425-diy-2009-2010-steering-wheel-lock-fix-w-pics.html , http://www.the370z.com/nissan-370z-general-discussions/65272-attention-2009-2010-owners-steering-lock-wont-start-issues.html . Also my battery is dead already because i haven't started my car for 5 months. Can you guys fix this problem for me?

My car has 40000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
