Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

The first thing that needs done here if this has not been done is to check and make sure this isnt due to a weak or dead battery issue.If you have a weak or dead battery this causes this fault here.If this has already been checked and found o.k. the other issue I have seen in allot of cases is a fault with the steering lock itself needing replaced.I have seen the steering lock fail causing the no turn and no start issue.

This will have to be checked into/tested further to pinpoint the cause and repaired from there.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
