    I think you have to hold the button down. Same thing happened to me last week and I had to turn the wheel slightly and move forward a bit and then it locked. Hope that helps.

    same shit as everyone else
    Turn the wheels slightly and press the gas. It'll work. Also it takes a bit of use until it goes in easily. Mine is just now starting to reliably lock.
