Did some work on the truck and disconnected battery for safety. Now, I am receiving codes UO131 & B1596 (and am getting the Service AdvanceTrac warning along with Check Brake
System). Steering wheel is locked. Truck starts fine and key turns fine, but the steering wheel is locked to where I can only go forward and backwards.
JA: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature?
Customer: 2012 F150 Platinum 4x4. Car is in Park when I start it (slanted driveway)
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes, as the truck was running fine before I disconnected the battery.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
