How do you fix a steering wheel that won't lock when the key is taken out?

I'm sure you can see why this would be a problem.

The easiest way is to get a new steering wheel lock from some place like JC Whitney. Expect to pay 45-100 depending on what car you have.

This is usually caused by a solenoid that has gone bad and is no longer locking the wheel. You will need to remove the sheilding around the column and find the solenoid.

When the steering wheel does not lock when the key is taken out, it is because you need a new steering column. Once replaced, it will be fine.
