There is a safety switch that keeps you from accidentally shifting from park. You're supposed to press the brake pedal to release the Park Lock. If the brake pedal sensor switch is adjusted wrong it won't release the park lock. If the connectors to the release are faulty or disconnected, the park lock won't release. You may have accidentally knocked a wire loose when you replaced the motor mounts.

What does the red steering wheel indicate on the ml320?

The red steering wheel in the instrument cluster means that the steering wheel is not locked into position. There should be a black lever on the left or right side of the steering column. This is the lever to release when you want to adjust the steering wheel up or down. Push the lever back up to lock into place and the indicator should go out. If it is still on when the steering wheel is locked, then that could be a electrical fault with the sensor.

sometimes if you parked with wheels not straight the steering lock will engage and be tight in the steering column if this is the problem, just move the steering wheel a bit so it frees up a little it will only move one way if this is the cause then while holding steering wheel away from where it was, see if key will turn if this doesnt work, get a steering column specialist to come out and fix ignition

Cost to repair the steering wheel shaft lock up on your 1996 Honda Civic your car was broken into and the steering wheel shaft locked up What is the approximate cost to repair this problem?

I don't know. However, generally speaking when a steering column is wrecked by theft damage as you indicate, the least expensive course is to have an experienced technician install a used steering column from a salvage vehicle. Try to ensure the used column is from a salvage vehicle that has not been wrecked through front end collision.


How do you remove steering lock on fintail?

I believe that on the fintails all you have to do is remove 2 bolts and a nut (it appears to be attached at the dashboard and not the steering column). I don't think you even need the key! The later cars have an anti-theft pin that keeps the switch locked to the steering column unless you have the key in and turned to position 1. You DO need the key to remove the lock cylinder(unless you drill it out).


You have a 1985 GMC Jimmy S1500 the column shifter gets locked up in park even in the on position with the engine running Sometimes the key gets locked in the on position too?

not sure but check the left side of the tranny and there maybe a cable hooked to the shift arm that goes to the steering column that locks the key in the on posistion !!!! if so unhook it from the trans. and push the arm up on the column hopefuly that will solve it !!!!!!!!!!!
