Steering Lock Engaged and Won’t Start

Post by Mike_Leech » Fri Aug 10, 2018 9:33 pm

Hi all,

New to the forum and own a 2017 (67) Qashqai 1.2.

My partner accidentally double tapped the unlock button on the door handle this evening which seems to have caused an odd reaction. Once she got in the car the alarm went off, so she got out, turned that off, got back in and couldn’t start the car.

I’ve tried a few things (I’m an IT professional so of course I started with turning it on and off again) several times though to no avail. When you get in it asks for the clutch to be pressed and the start button engaged, though and you do this the symbol changes to a steering wheel with arrows up either side and the start button. The whole time the car does not start and the steering remains locked.

Any ideas . . . Helpppppppp

Just a thought, have you tried moving the steering wheel whilst keeping the start button pressed in?

Mike, I tend to agree with gvmdaddy if the symbols mean what they seem to do, rotate the wheel and press the button (Clutch ?). I have tried looking up the symbols but have not found this one - Best of Luck with what gvmdaddy suggested Dave :)

The only icon I can find in the Nissan Driver’s Guide app, similar to the one you’ve taken a picture of, is the one telling you to push ignition to off. Can’t see anything relating to the steering wheel icon :?

If you tap the icon in the app to find out more information, it states:
This warning will illuminate if the ignition is placed in the ACC position when the shift lever is moved to the P
(Park) position. To turn off the Push warning, place the ignition in the ON position and then in the LOCK position.

Thanks for all the feedback thus far. Nothing has worked so AA are on their way. A small light is also flashing which indicates NATS security system in the manual so my guess is the immobiliser has decided to permanently engage.

Will update later

Hi,

I had the problem this morning - Did the AA say what the problem is / how to fix it?

Thanks,

Chris

I have had this problem. When I stopped the car at the time there were forces acting on the front wheels that I did not notice as the car has power assisted steering. When the engine power was off the wheels slowly moved & applied pressure to the steering wheel locking mechanism. I had to quite forcibly push the steering wheel to identify which side had the pressure and then push towards the pressure to take it away from the lock.

The car then started.

I would imagine this could be more of an issue when on uneven ground.
