STEERING LOCK STUCK, KEY WON'T TURN, 98 FRONTIER

  • 1998 Nissan Frontier

My 98 Frontier steering wheel is stuck in the locked position, and the key will go in but won't turn. It has 170,000 km on it.

I've tried jiggling, and brute force on the wheel (as suggested by the dealer's mechanic) but that won't free it.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Barry

I'm having the same trouble with my 1990 240sx, I've tried everything short of taking the whole ignition piece out and replacing it if you find a way please let me know.

Same problem. It has resolved itself so far. But it has happened 3 times. Could this be caused by the security chip in the key?
