Customer Question
Steering wheel is crooked...

Steering wheel is crooked but the tires are straight. The ignition will not turn. I know the steering wheel has to be straightened but I cannot do it

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you turn the steering wheel at all? And what about the key? Is it worn or damaged?

It is keyless but I have tried my keys as well. Nothing is helping

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Nissan?

2007 Maxima

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Maxima yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have tried turning the steering wheel both ways while turning the key but nothing is happening

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Is this strictly a maxima problem. Such a stupid problem. Makes me want to get a domestic vehicle

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
