This is my in-law's car. They live in Los Angeles.
Two days ago when they started up the car, the 'security' indicator light went on when they turned the key to start the car.
The engine would not start...we would just see the indicator light. I thought that perhaps the steering wheel was in a position that locked the ignition. We played with the steering wheel and eventually the indicator light went off and the engine started.
The next day it happened again but the steering wheel trick didn't work. My in-law thinks the issue just timed out.
What could be causing this? How can this be fixed?
