Ok. Can you tell me if the steering wheel is locked? Also did you try inserting the key into the fob slot and try to start the car?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
the steering wheel doesn't feel like its locked, it moves a little but the wheels don't and no the car wont start w fob in slot
Expert:  Jay replied 10 months ago.

This could be a steering lock control unit issue. If you press the start button do you see a yellow key light? Does the ignition come on at all?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
the yellow lock light is on the ignition...no it doesn't come on
Expert:  Jay replied 10 months ago.
