HELP!!!!

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

Have no tried the steering wheel and key is a 2005 key.

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

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If all fuses are checked and found to be o.k. try disconnecting the battery for several minutes then reconnect it to see if this resets the electronics and works properly then at all.If this was already tried or is tried and does not work then you need to have the fault codes read out/checked using a compatible scan tool or computer plugged into your model to see what codes are set then those codes diagnosed and repaired.You may have damaged a control unit/ecu when this occurred to where it would possibly need to be replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
