If your steering wheel becomes locked, there is one common “DIY” fix that can prevent your need to pay an unexpected service call.
- Are your wheels straight? If they are turned hard to either side, it will cause a bind on the locking mechanism in the steering column. By turning the steering wheel in the direction the wheels are turned you will release the bind and release the locking mechanism.
If this doesn’t resolve your locked steering wheel there can be several factors causing the bind that do require the service of a professional.Brian Lee
