1) Removed the entire lock cylinder and tumbler assembly. Upon removal the tumbler assembly rotated properly in the lock cylinder and the key released.
2) Removed the tumbler assembly from the lock cylinder.
3) Cleaned and lubricated with graphite-laced lubricant.
When I reassembled the entire mechanism, the steering wheel still would not move into the lock position and release the key. However, the car would still crank and drive and when you stop the engine, the accessories, and thereby the batter, remain operational.
Looking for suggestions. I have tried an alternate key and moving the steering wheel back and forth.
have the same problem?
