My problems arose about 6 months ago, when I was overdue for an inspection by a few weeks. I did get pulled over once, but that cop let me go. THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN MY SIGN TO GET MY CAR INSPECTED… but it wasn’t. I put it off longer. I got caught in an inspection check, and I did recieve a ticket. I was resolved to finally get my car inspected. THEN, my key stopped working - in the on position. The only managble solution I could come up with was to take off the steering column and physcially unplug it. This allowed me to turn my car off when I needed to. THEN my wheel barrings turned out to be shot.
My question is this: Does unplugging the steering column have any effect on my car’s computer? Is unplugging the steering column somehow resetting it? I want to attempt to have it inspected while I await my ignition switch.
