I am having the same issue (2021 Palisade SEL) as the OP. It was discovered today on my way home from a camping trip. I was on the highway with my kids in the car. How incredibly frightening, and ultimately frustrating. I have an appointment on Friday.

**as a side bar, this will be the second extended repair since I purchased in September 2020. There was a computer malfunction on my palisade which fried the O2 sensor and made the engine light a permanent addition to the dash board and it was in the shop for over 3 months. It may be time for beginning lemon-law paperwork.

ugh! That was my fear when the local Hyundai Dealership couldn’t recreate the issue to get the codes they needed to fix the problem. they told me to keep driving it and if the issue happened again to bring it in. I was worried i’d be in the highway when it happened again. Needless to say I took it to another dealership. They replaced the power steering component and has been fine since (knock on wood).

If you haven’t done so already, please contact Hyundai Corporate and create a case so they are aware of the issue. If this is a common problem they may have to do a recall.

Is yours the 2021 Hyundai Palisade SEL with Convenience and Premium package? Just curious ….

For those who might not know yet, keep in mind you can still steer the vehicle, but it requires higher force. And the slower you're going, the more force needed, so it's highest when stopped, so don't try to parallel park, or something like that.

Maybe for some, but the original poster said that he could not turn the steering wheel at all.

She later acknowledged she could steer, but that it was hard... which is VERY different from locking up :). And yes, I was the one who asked her if it really locked up, since I knew it wasn't the case. That's why I posted what I did above, to educate owners that the steering column will NOT lock up, and the vehicle is safe to steer, albeit with greater effort. Title is misleading (mods should change it); it's just the assist that fails.

Well, actually, the ORIGINAL poster is jhcull, and he/she said:

"It's a rather frightening thing to have your steering wheel completely lock while you are driving. No ability to even pull to the side."

"I got a check blind spot system warning and lights as well as check one of the other systems, at the same time the steering column/wheel completely locked up, couldn't be turned at all."

"This failure caused my steering wheel to completely lock up four times, two while I was parked and trying to reverse, and two while actively driving."

"Yes, sorry I guess it could be interpreted different ways, but by completely locking up I meant that my steering wheel suddenly would not budge right or left at all while driving, it was completely stuck and I was unable to pull over to the side."

I didn't see any comments by the original poster they could steer, even with great effort.

This just happened to me. Was traveling about 40km/h when I got all these warnings and the steering wheel became very difficult to turn. I was able to muscle the wheel to pull over safely. I tried turn the car on and off several times but the error did not go away. I had my 1yr old in the car, luckily we were not on the highway!! Waiting for the tow truck. Have a video of all the warnings,but too large to post.

Has anyone else experienced this? I'm a new owner of a Palisade Limited and have absolutely loved my new car until now. Last week I turned the car on to leave, then randomly got an error to check the blind spot assist system and one of the other safety systems, then the steering wheel locked. I tried changing settings but nothing happened, so I turned the car off and back on. The errors disappeared and I drove home. Planned to call the service department but wasn't too worried. Until yesterday. The same thing happened while I was driving. I was thankfully on a surface street going straight coming up to a stop so I was able to quickly turn the car off and on again, which cleared the error and released the steering wheel. Then it happened two more times within the hour. We had it towed last night to the dealership. I'm so thankful nothing bad happened, but if I had been on a freeway or curvy road, things would have been much worse. It's a rather frightening thing to have your steering wheel completely lock while you are driving. No ability to even pull to the side. Has anyone heard of this happening? The dealer says they haven't, and I'm really concerned that they won't be able to replicate it and will just send me on my way. There's no way I feel comfortable driving it again unless I know they've fixed the issue.
I know this is an old post, but a very scary event yesterday has caused me to research issues with Hyundai's. I have owned a 2018 Kona for 1 month. Yesterday, I driving in a Publix parking lot looking for a space and hit a small bump. Immediatley the steering wheel locked, and the car rapidly accelerated. The brakes would not work, I was not able to steer and crashed right into the back of a parked vehicle. Thank God, noone was killed bc it could have been fatal. The damage was extensive, and I no longer feel safe driving the car and no longer want it. Wondering is anyone has similar experience or advice?

Did you try putting car in neutral or turning off ignition?

Don't talk to us, retain an attorney VDT to secure the "black box" data and ,maybe if possible, extract a complete repair history on the car. Your insurance will cover the damages to the cars, unfortunately not your confidence or pride.

Wow! Glad they found it! I have noted some abrupt swerves to the right, by our 2021 Palisade, when the freshly asphalted interstate had an exit ramp, but the right-hand white lines had not been completed. The car suddenly tried to go down the center of what it saw as a very wide lane! But nothing like a complete lockup! My 2017 Elantra Limited has always given me gentle reminders about lane keeping, but the Palisade was really muscular!

This happened to me today. The first time while starting my car. Turn it off restarted and fine. Then this afternoon while driving it happened again. I was able to muscle it off the road. I called the local dealership and they said they will not be able to get it in for weeks. I’m afraid to drive it. Just lucky I wasn’t on the highway. Not sure what to do. Think I’ll call Hyundai assistant and have it towed in. Is yours fixed?

I heard back from the dealer, who said that the two instances I experienced, do not show in my car's system and they can't recreate it while driving it around. So there is nothing that needs to be fixed.
I am really struggling with this conclusion. How can Hyundai, with good conscious, give me back my car and tell me to drive around with my two young kids. Who is to say it doesn't happen on the highway next time?

So with that, my question is, when this happened to others, was there something that showed your dealer what the issue was?
This EXACT thing is happening to me right now. My steering wheel has locked twice after 3 sensors go off. We had to turn the car off and then on again to drive it, however, now that it is at the dealership it is driving fine. They said they have to give it back to me, unfixed, because they cannot replicate the issue and therefore cannot fix it. I am at a loss of what to do! Next step is complaints with corporate. How is your car doing now?

Hi JHCull, I am having the same exact issues now with my 2021 Palisade. It has been at the dealership all week and they say they cannot find anything wrong so they are giving it back to me with the unknown steering lock issue! What was the end result with you Palisade? I am not sure where to go from here.

So glad I found these posts. I have a 2021 Palisade SEL. Went out this morning and BCW, LDW and steering lights all came on. Car was parked, engine on it could not steer wheel to pull away from curb. Shut it off and called the dealer who said to turn it on but wait a minute for the car to perform it’s self test then start the engine. Tried that and the same result, unable to drive the car. Dealer suggested roadside assistance for towing to the dealership. All service departments are now closed so will call tomorrow. Wondering if Hyundai would take it back 10mos into my 36mo lease? Worried about driving it once it is fixed.

We have a Limited Pallisade 2020 and we just had exactly the same issue tonight. Very scary. I was wondering if you were able to send the letter to Hyundai corporate office and what they said. Fortunately we were not on the freeway! Steering wheel locked after multiple warning messages appeared on the dash board.

I had the same problem about two months ago. Towed car to dealer and they replaced some sort of computer module under the dash near the steering column. They didn’t seem to mention this as a recall and some research I did appears to be a potential issue with a small number of cars so a TSB exists. Needless to say no issues since and 2,000+ miles later.

I am experiencing the same issue with my 2022 Palisade; steering locked in motion displaying steering warning and lane keep assist fault indicators. Happened while taking my kids to school; freaked out and had it towed to the dealership. Strange that despite this post in 2020 and many other similar encounters, this frightening safety issue still exists in the 2022 model. Curious to know how your car performed after the repairs and also if you filed a complaint with any of the regulators (US or Canada)
