    It sounds like you have an electrical problem in the steering column, which needs diagnosis. there is most likely a frayed or loose wire.

    I don't have an answer but my car is doing this and I just want to say how amazed I was to google, "car won't start unless steering wheel is turned left" and get several hits.
