2017 Outback 3.6l Touring
I had this warning pop up last Monday for the first time on my 2017 Outback. I worked the steering wheel back and forth and the car started. The owners manual basically states do what I did to get the car to start. What I can't find out is how and why this feature works and how to avoid this happening in the future. On my 2001 truck I know the steering can bind the ignition switch and working the wheel back and forth relieves the bind and allows the ignition switch to operate. On a keyless ignition system why would steering locked be a problem?
