Q: Q: Steering wheel locked

asked by on

Nissan rogue 2013 steering wheel is locked. The key goes in and turns . This is not a problem. I pressed the brake and tried to steer the while towards right and left with no luck. Also tried turning the engine on and at the same time tried turning the steering with no luck as well. The engine also is not turned . May be its due to the steering lock?

The issue may be within the steering column. It can be the ignition switch not releasing the steering lock mechanism, or it can be the steering lock mechanism itself. There can be a broken or out of adjustment component in the locking mechanism. It may be best to have the vehicle towed to the nearest Nissan dealership. Make sure all the keys are with the vehicle just in case they have to replace the ignition.
