Steering Column Locking

I attempted my first drive of the #4G63510 and never got out of the driveway. The steering wheel is randomly locking even while running. I'm sure I screwed something up since I've replaced both the steering wheel, and the key mechanism. I had the ignition key tumbler set to be the same as my door keys and perhaps I did something wrong reinstalling. I'm not sure where to start looking and not sure why this would happen even while the car is running. Is it possible to put the tumbler in 180* out? I thought it only went in one way. Any advice is greatly appreciated. I'd like to drive this thing soon.

Easiest thing to do is unbolt the ignition lock assembly. Go drive it.. does it still lock up?

I had an issue with this when I replaced my tumbler. I don't remember the exact cause - but I took it apart, and switched it around, then it worked.

Are you saying the steering lock engaged while driving! 8-0

Hope you actually found the root cause, damn that's bloody scary!

Almost as scary as your steering locking up due to no oil in the steering box, eh..... :wink:
