This car has electric steering, you must have the system checked by the dealer.

SOURCE: whining noise when turnins steering wheel &

the whining noise you are experiencing are coming from under the bonnet and you need to have the belt serviced. look for any oil leaks and correct them first. if not inspect the condition of the belt and and whether or not you can read it normally. if not it should be turned around. sounds absolutely crazy i know. it has worked for me for about 10 years. it could be just worn and excessively glazed and cracked. simple fix bloke. cheers.

SOURCE: 1998 lincoln mark viii steering wheel dont return

the first thing to do is to make sure the steering is not binding up,like a balljoint or tierod , un hook the tierods and feel the turn of the wheel at the wheel not the steering wheel, make sure its not thight do the same on the other side,also take a good look at the shaft going to steering gear,ive found that the ujoints rust up and bind,causes wheel not to return, it could also be a leaking rack internally,start there, good luck.

SOURCE: 2002 Pontiac Grand Am key

Ok the most common problem with this situation is the tumblers in the lock came apart. you will ned to either replace the lock or have a repair shop replace it. The parts are not all that expensive, but the job is a bit dificult for a beginner. Cause?? well use is one cause if the car has a ton of miles on it and the ignition switch has be used a lot that could have caused the tumblers to fail. another common reason is a heavy key chain pulling down on the lock cylinder. The third cause is... it just happened. I have seen brand new cars with less than 3k miles on them come in with the same problem.

Ok to swum it up.. replace the lock cylinder, dealer or a lock smith can key it the same as your curent key. you can most likly purchase the parts from NAPA or other parts houses. You will need to gather a detailed instructions if you plan to do it yourself as there is not enough room or time to spell out the entire procedure here. If you do not have the tools and dont think you will do a few more of these repairs then it is most likly less expensive to have a reputable repair shop do the work. Good luck

Horn & Cruise control doesn't work

The clock spring has gone bad. You will have to remove the steering wheel to gain access to the clock spring (used to be called the turn sig. switch) But if you are going to perform this repair make sure you dis-connect the battery before you began because you could set off the air bag in the steering wheel

Remove and install steering wheel kia sportage 1998

Why would you get involved with the steering wheel ?

You paid a repair shop that obviously doesn't do very good work

Take it back

If the steering wheel was not removed for whatever your
car was in the shop for ,then you don't remove it to resolve
the issue.

If the steering rack was replaced, then they did a terrible job
putting it back together

My key doesn't turn in the ignition, its automatic and the shifter and wheel wont move either. Everything is locked how do I unlock it? help pls?

If turning the steering wheel to the left or right doesn't allow the key to turn, it sounds like your tumblers in the lock cylinder have failed. Unfortunately, there is no way to know when this is going to happen, but eventually, it happens. Not a real expensive fix. Replace the ignition/lock cylinder.

Key won't turn in ignition

On many vehicles, the key locks the steering wheel. If the wheel is turned, it can keep the key from turning. While trying to turn the key, push the steering wheel hard to the right and if that doesn't work, push the steering wheel hard to the left.

My steering wheel will not turn to the left.. I can turn it all the way to the right but once I get to the center it does not turn any further... I just got done taking apart the steering gear and found...

Disconnect the column from the rack & pinion, And then see if the wheel will rotate left. If it does, then it IS the rack & pinion or some thing is jamming it. That is a classic sign of a bad rack & pinion. It takes more hydraulic pressure to turn left than to the right, and the and so the floating ball hits the seal harder, and wears it out faster. Then the pressure just returns to the pump in stead of moving the tires left.

NOTE: DO NOT turn the steering wheel more than it does when connected the the rack & pinion.
For this test one turn either way from center will suffice. If you turn it more, or fast, you will probably break the "clocking spring" inside the steering wheel. Then the air-bag warning light will come on. The spring tells the air-bag when its safe to fire the bag in relation to the wheels position.

Hope this helps.

2" of slop in the

Since the slop is gone, it is probably an alignment problem now-check for binding but in most cases it is a caster issue.
