How to unlock kia steering wheel

Wazup KIA people, help a colleague unlock the steering wheel without tampering with it or any other part of the vehicle

Place your hand on the steering wheel and insert the key into the ignition. Gradually rotate the key while simultaneously nudging the wheel from side to side. Maintain a steady, gentle pressure as you do this. Persist with these actions until the steering wheel is freed and you’re able to ignite the engine.

First, insert your key into the ignition switch and turn it without too much force. If the key turns, then the steering wheel will be unlocked. Should you have difficulty turning the ignition switch to the ACC position, turn the key while turning the steering wheel right and left to release the tension

I visited the closest KIA dealership and simply stated my requirement without any further discussion. It seems logical that they would only require proof of ownership, such as your registration document containing the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). VINs are distinct for each vehicle and provide details like model and year, which are sufficient for assessing the necessity of a lock.


If you want to unlock Kia steering wheel, here are the steps you should follow:

  • Insert the Key: Put the ignition key into the ignition.
  • Turn the Wheel: While turning the key, gently move the steering wheel left and right. Apply some pressure, but don’t force it.
  • Simultaneous Action: Keep turning the key and the wheel at the same time until the wheel unlocks
