Tech Tip: The vehicle will not start or ready-on and the steering wheel lock is engaged so that the steering wheel may only be turned very little side-to-side. HINT: The above listed vehicles are not equipped with an LED indicator on the "ENGINE START STOP" or "POWER" switch, and instead will display a message reading "Steering Lock Engaged" in the event that the steering lock actuator is unable to disengage from the steering column. If the operator attempts to ready-on or start the vehicle while there is tension on the steering lock actuator, it will not be able to fully disengage when the "ENGINE START STOP" or "POWER" switch is depressed. This condition will cause the vehicle message center to display the "Steering Lock Engaged" error message and the vehicle will fail to ready-on or start.
