I told him not to touch it until it actually clears that I won't pay anything. If not, then I'll just order the part myself and fix it with a friend of mine.
Good idea. If you know how to use a screwdriver, then you should be able to do this job by following the DIY.

Keep us posted with how you make out.

This is how I responded:

I am still dissatisfied with Nissan's reluctance to address the issue with REV A, B and C steering wheel lock failures in the 2009 and early 2010 370z. this exact same part was recalled in the GTR for failures and many people are currently experiencing problems with the part failing at great inconvenience to the consumer. On the forums online that I frequent every day there are new complaints about their steering wheel locks failing. I hope that Nissan decides to address this issue in the very near future.
I traded my 370z in on a Wrangler after that ********. My car had JUST ran out of warranty by about 2000 miles when this happened. I called Nissan and they wouldn't budge on it. I had to pay $1200 out of pocket just to have it still to a point where maybe it could happen again at any point, F that.

I've had two Altima's before that and my mother also drives an Altima, I told them I would never drive another Nissan again and they couldn't care less. I filled out that survey with great anger, lol.

Been waiting patiently for a month now and I am never taking it to Nissan in Germany ever again. I am now trying to contact someone in the states to get this part quickly and getting my car back. The excuse I keep hearing is that the emailing is not getting back to him...tired of this!

That's exactly the response I got when speaking with Nissan consumer affairs. I have owned 8 nissans including 5 Z's. I'll keep the two Z's I have because they are paid off, but, as of right now, I will not buy another Nissan ever again.

My car got towed to the dealer today. It's completely dead. No lights. Nothing. The key slot under the steering was on. (2 orange LEDs) and the starter button was on "on position" can't do anything. The horn is working. And step on break. Break lights come on. Other than that. Nothing. Can't start the car. No electrical power. = dead z

P.s tried the battery but it's 88% or 12.55 at autozone, advance auto parts and o'reilly. Is that symptoms of steering lock failure? Thanks in advance!!

You will have the "key" symbol lit up solid on the instrument cluster if it's the steering lock issue, and the car won't start...

There's no power. Black out. Even dome light don't turn on. Basically nothing turn on.





That's the only lights in my interior. Nothing else other than that.

U can't operate any function or feature of the car. It's sucks. Talked to the dealer. After they check or diagnose my car. They disassembly the steering lock and doing diagnose by Tom morning they will call me back. So he said most likely that's the problem and will cover by warranty. And I believe this is not the first Nissan car had same problem that's y they check the steering lock.

Got the problem. The dealer called and said the problem was "body control module" consider a brain of the car? Thats what i heard from him... and that's also the main caused of "steering lock" so if they going to replace it. Then my car won't have a problem of steering lock issue?
