Steering wheel locks automatically or key won't turn when not locked

Asked by May 15, 2018 at 08:28 PM about the 2007 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My wife has a hard time starting her Toyota Camry every so often (seems
more frequent then ever). I can get the car started as I am used to wheel
locks and what not; however, sometimes the steering wheel isn't locked and
it won't turn. Also there are times that once the car is turned off the wheel
gets locked automatically (just noticed). I was testing this theory by turning
on the car and then off and I would see that wheel lock (no clicking sound
when it locks). Do I need to replace the ignition switch? Or is there
something else. I had the same problem on my Nissan Altima but a new key
solved that issue.
