Towing a car with no power steering?
Power steering is only important when needing to turn your cars wheel while driving the vehicle but for a tow truck driver this will not be a problem at all. Understand that this will not stop your car from being towed for they will simply attach the chain to pull the car up onto the tow truck.
Also without power steering it will not make the car impossible to turn but it will in fact make it harder to turn but not impossible. Some tow trucks don't even need to gain access to your cars steering wheel in order to be able to tow your car up onto the flatbed of a tow truck.

Being towed without power steering and brakes?
I need to tow my ford chug to the garage however it has keyless ignition, so even with the button depressed and lights on etc, the power assisted brakes and steering is not working making it impossible to tow. Is it possible to engage power steering and brakes without engine running?. I have tried: Pushing the keyless ignition button.
