Steering wheel won't lock when in park

My steering wheel won't lock when in park. It's an '04 with about 22,000 miles on it. I noticed this well over a year ago, but it never really bothered me.
I've tried turning the wheel when the ignition is off and it's in park, but it will simply not lock. When wiggling the shifter I can hear a click, like it's trying to lock.
I hesitate taking it to the dealer, as I really don't want them tearing the dash apart.
Is there any reason it's unsafe to leave it this way?
My 3-year / 36k warranty will be up in May.

Thanks

Re: Steering wheel won't lock when in park

I can't say that I know if mine locks either. I just remove the keys and get out but never tried to move the wheel. I'll go look to see for myself.

Re: Steering wheel won't lock when in park

OK, thank you for the exercise as I just got up and went outside to check. My 2005 Titan has the wheels straight and tried the steering wheel and it's not locked.
I bought my 2007 Pathfinder yesterday and it too has the wheels straight and it's not locked either.
Come to think of it, I believe it only locks with the wheels turned on Nissans. I think years ago I also questioned this feature. But I could be wrong.....
My GM and Fords locked at any position.
Anyone else know the answer?

Clint - Thanks for checking yours. Maybe I'll leave the wheels turned and see if it locks.

Mine does lock up. With the wheels straight it take about a 1/4 turn to lock.
