How do you unlock a Honda CRV steering wheel?

How can I unlock my Honda CRV’s steering wheel? I locked it by mistake the last time I got out of my car, and I can’t figure out how to undo it.

While the locking steering wheel can be frustrating, it’s actually meant to protect your vehicle when you park on an incline! Luckily, it’s pretty easy to unlock your Honda CRV steering wheel. Just follow these steps:
  • Turn the wheel as far as it will go in the same direction you did when it locked.
  • Start your car while holding the wheel in the turning position.
  • It should unlock!
  • If the wheel is still stuck, try starting the car while holding the steering wheel as far as it’ll turn in the opposite direction.
Once you get your wheel unstuck, take a minute to save on car insurance with Jerry.
