What causes my car not to start unless the steering wheel is turned to left, then it will start. What repairs are needed to fix this problem. Thanks.

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.
