2011 Ford Fusion steering lock

#1

After church I came out, started my car and a panel message
came up about steering lock… I was totally unable to move
the steering wheel. A friend suggested maybe fluid was low.
I called AAA and they just wanted to tow it somewhere. I ended up shutting it off and when restarted it turned normally. Is this a recall problem, or what made it do that.
I never have had this happen before.

Happens a lot. Just rock the steering wheel a bit when in lock position until you can start the car.There is usually a bit of freeplay at the steering,just enough to start it.
