now my steering wheel is locked and battery dead. i had to put gas in it too. ideas?
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 2 months ago.
Battery dead ,can you charge it
Is any good can you check it ?There is a side panel fuse box on driver side check all fusesThere a CIM module and lock actuator for steering could be an issue
We will need a Gm tech II scanner or equivalent to retrieve the fault codes to confirm
Let's start with a battery being good and has 12 volts and check fuses and go from there
