Intelligent Key System steering wheel lock failure

5 posts in this topic

Hi there! 

Had my first experience with the faulty Intelligent Key System steering wheel lock failure today (2010 370z). Everything is locked - gearbox, steering wheel, break pedal and the panel has constant yellow key icon on it. raa can't tow. 

Anyone else so lucky?

Had this just this weekend. Car wouldn't start at the shops. Put new batteries in both keys, no luck. Luckily it had failed without totally locking steering, so I got it towed (steering lock failure actually blocks the car from starting).

When I got it home, I smashed the steering lock with a mallet while hitting the start button (Forums say the actual problem is a small switch in the lock that comes loose). When she fired up, put it in ACC with the start button. Then yanked the fuse for the Steering Lock (Fuse is located in a box that sits alongside the battery). 

No problems since. No help from Nissan since, either.

Extra information and a video I used, located here: http://www.the370z.com/nissan-370z-general-discussions/55315-steering-lock-problem-solved-real-58.html#post3472152

I see. I don't think I will be using a mallet, but I did read about people taking the steering wheel lock off/out. Damn....

I had same today. I had it happen once before and found the hammer hit on the metal box got me going... I figured that was the last of it. I was not aware of the fuse pull once you get started. It happened again today and RAA towed to Main North Nissan. I now know about the fuse pull but it's too late. Quoted $2300 to fix. If Nissan won't cover it, I will pull it out and try and fix myself...

go to ebay. THIS IS A FACTORY NISSAN STEERING LOCK DELETE MODULE IT DOES NOT LOCK THE STEERING WHEEL AS IT DOES NOT HAVE A LOCK SO IT WILL NEVER FAIL。 48708-9N00A

      All good, hit the steering lock with a small hammer, took two goes, then pushed starter button, was able to get it into ACC mode, pulled the steering lock fuse, started car and got the hell out of the Nissan workshop! The look on their faces was priceless.
