Moving The Steering Wheel Cuts Off Engine And Power. If Kept In The Highest Position It Will Start And Run. But If One Tries To Lower The Steering Wheel, The Whole Car Turns Off. Moving It Also Blows The Ignition Fuse. Or That’s What The Repair Man Said. I Am Fairly Short And Find It Difficult To Drive It This Way. Also I’m Concerned As To If The airbag Were To Ever Deploy, It Is Now Aimed Directly At My Head. As For The Accident On 1/1/1999 We Were Stopped At A Red Light When We Were Rear Ended And Rammed Into The Car In Front Of Us. Neither Of The airbags Deployed During Or After The Incident.*ak
