Can someone help?? Sign In

Vehicle: 1996 Toyota Tacoma 4x4
Problem: It was very cold this morning, and as I increased the speed/RPM, a strange clicking sound began behind my steering wheel. I drove back home and parked it, and when I turned off the engine, the key would not come out of the switch and I cannot change gears. Also, when I start the engine, the steering wheel turns completely 360 degrees. Anybody out there have any ideas??

Which engine?

The steering wheel turned all by itself?

I'm confused. Are the tires turning when your rotating the steering wheel or are you stating you can turn the steering wheel when the column is supposed to be locked?

the tires still turn, but the issue is what is the clicking noise and why can I not shift out of gear. I would assume the issues are all related, sense this is the first time it has happened and at the same time.

Sounds like you have some sort of shift interlock/park lock issue. Does this have column or floor shift? Can you pinpoint the location of the clicking noise? Do your brake lamps work?

Column shift. I am pretty sure the clicking is a faulty speedometer cable. What I am more curious about is why it would not shift out of gear this morning, could it have something to do with the cold temperature? And there was also a lot of white smoke exhaust.
