Mazda CX-9 No Start Problems
Sometimes when I get into my car, the steering wheel locks
and there is no play in it. I do NOT exit the car with the steering wheel
It takes enormous strength to turn the wheel just a bit to get the car
to start. It seems to be an intermittent problem.
I tried a solution I locked and then unlocked the car with the fob while I
was in it and that sometimes cures the problem.
The problem just started after owning the car for 2 years.
At times the KEY light flashes when I start the car too.
Don't know if it is related.
I took the car to the dealer and was told the steering mechanism
works and there is no problem which is incorrect.
I am nervous to start the car when I have an appointment to go to
since it sometimes takes 5-7 minutes of fiddling with steering wheel
before the car starts.
