Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your questionIs your steering wheel locked? What model 2009 Infiniti is this?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
g37, I can turn it, not like it normally is when I shut the car off
Expert:  Jay replied 8 months ago.
If you can turn the wheel with the Car off, you have a bad steering lock control unit
Expert:  Jay replied 8 months ago.
What you can do to get the Car running is to remove the lower panel under the drivers driver's side dash and tap the control unit with a hammer to get it to complete the shut down cycle. Then the Car should start. I have a video on this. Hang on
