Q: Q: Wheels not turning

asked by on

When I turn the steering wheel the wheels do not turn.

This is more of an unusual issue. The most common cause of this would be a failed power steering rack or faulty tie rod ends. I would recommend having a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, diagnose your steering wheel and perform any repairs required to ensure your safety while turning.
