I looked on you tube for steering wheel lock problems. I had to put a by pass on my C5 corvette. It killed each time I put in in gear when I first start it up. This may or may not be the problem. It last a year. Now it's back in shop getting it done again. I did make an big mistake before I did this I had put it in another shop and they stated it was an computer. $1200.00 for that and it wasn't the computer. A waste of money. So before you have someone waste your money you might try the cheaper route the by pass.
