Steering wheel locking

So the steering wheel on my 99 started locking on it own and it takes 15-20 of messing with it to get it unlocked and get the car started. Has this ever happened to anyone else? Thoughts? Suggestions?

Re: Steering wheel locking

Is it when the car is off?
Older cars have it so if you turn the steering wheel after the car is off it locks and if you try to turn the key in the ignition it won't budge.

To correct this you just move the steering wheel in the opposite direction it's locked in and then turn the key. It'll only move like an inch or 2 but it should then turn on and be all good.

^^ this

And for future reference...try not to lock it to avoid the pita of having to do what Paz said.

Thank you Paz.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Steering wheel locking

The problem is that it started locking on its own, I'm not locking it. It should be fairly simple to unlock as Paz stated but it takes a while for it to unlock, it's weird.
