How do I unlock the steering wheel in a Honda?

The steering wheel in my Honda Accord has locked up and it won’t let me turn the key. How can I unlock the steering wheel in my Honda?

That’s super frustrating! While the steering wheel locking is an anti-theft device, it can be a huge inconvenience. Luckily, it’s easy to unlock your Honda Accord’s steering wheel. Here’s how:
  • With the key in the ignition, turn the wheel in either direction as far as you can. You should feel the wheel give when turning it in a certain direction.
  • Try turning the key at the same time.
  • If this doesn’t work the first time, start over and repeat the steps.
When you’re successful, you’ll feel the wheel give, the ignition will unlock, and you can start the car.
While anti-theft devices keep your car protected, having a full coverage car insurance policy will also ensure you and your vehicle’s safety.
