Range Rover County Ignition Problemss

Hey Guys

I have been having some problems with my ignition lately...the steering wheel is locked and I am unable to turn the key. Has anyone had anything similar happen to them? If so, how did you remedy the problem?

Thanks,
Brian

Put it in neautral release the park break and let it roll a little to free up the steering wheel and you should be able to turn the key. It has happened to me before.

Has this been sitting in the same place for days just 'cause no one answered this? Try rocking the steering wheel back & forth slowly while turning the key buit don't break the key off.

Wait does this have a slush box? If so then maybe the park solnoid is broke.

I have tried everything...rocking the truck back and forth...moving the wheel back and forth...stepping on the brakes...you name it, I have tried it. I am pretty sure the lock cylinder is shot...have heard of this happening before with the older Countys...

Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
Brian

Spray it with some WD-40? SOmetimes after a few rain storms mine get's a little corroded and this helps. Are sure it is in park? Have you checked the park solinoid?
