The steering column lock unlocks and locks in conjunction with the vehicle's locking system. The steering column locks automatically when the vehicle's ignition is switched off and the smart key is removed from the vehicle.


During vehicle recovery, a smart key must remain inside the vehicle so that the steering column lock remains unlocked. If the steering column lock locks while the vehicle is moving, serious damage may occur.

If the steering column lock malfunctions, the instrument panel displays the message Steering column locked. If this occurs:

  1. Lock and then unlock the vehicle using the smart key.

  2. Try again to unlock the steering column lock. Turn the steering wheel gently to the left and right.


    The steering column lock may malfunction if the steering column is under load. For example, when the vehicle is parked with the front wheels pressed against a kerb.

If the problem persists, seek qualified assistance immediately.
