Yellow Lock light

Thanks for the posts everyone, and this DIY is amazing. I walked out to my car Monday morning and was disheartened when I was greeted by the yellow steering wheel lock symbol. This was the first time I had ever seen it. I've owned the car for about a year now, and haven't had a single problem yet. My car is still sitting in my driveway with the yellow lock light, no steering wheel movement, and is unable to start. The battery is 6 years old and this all happened on the coldest day of the year so far, so i'm thinking that is what caused the malfunction. I replaced the battery with an interstate last night, and with the help of a friend, and a couple of beers, I intend to do try the DIY fix this weekend. I've been searching the web all week and was unbelievably relieved to find this thread. Thanks again!
