at least you were able to remove the ignition switch already. the next step is to remove the special bolt that they used to hold the ignition lock at the steering, you can replace them anytime with ordinary bolts after you repair the ignition lock. they are like cone head which no tools could hold unto them( to prevent burglars from stealing your car) think of a way to remove these two bolts. either you cut them with a hack saw or use vice grip pliers or chisel it with a metal chisel and hammer.
after you removed the bolts, the pin and the key assembly can be removed and it would unlock your steering wheel.

To fix your problem, you have to turn the steering wheel either to the
left or right as much as you can, then try to turn the key in the
ignition. When the steering wheel locks, the key won't turn. By manually
holding the steering wheel out of the lock position, the key will turn
again and you're steering column will be back to normal.
It sounds as if the rod or ignition key gear may be broken. The ignition switch is actually on top of the steering colume under the dash. The key turns a gear that is connected to a rod. The rod travels down to the actual electrical ignition switch. If you are not feeling any tension at all when you turn the key, either the rod or gear has broken. In either case the steering wheel all the way down to the key tumblers will need to taken apart. Hope this helps.
sounds like ignition lock has broken. Ypou could try some releasing fluid into the lock and leave over night and see if comes free other than that, you will have to strip down the steering column cowl and replace the lock.
I don't understand what you mean when you say that you have "taken the steering column apart." I hope that you mean that you have successfully taken the steering wheel off (without setting off the SRS (airbag)), and that you have taken the steering column covers off. If that is the case, you should be able to see the switch. The rest of the procedure is as follows:
Unplug the ignition switch connector. Insert the key and turn it to the O position (very important).
If present, remove the tape on the switch wires.
Remove the two screws securing the switch, then remove the switch.
Make certain the recess of the switch aligns with eht ab of the lock housing. Insert the switch and install the retaining screws.
Hope this helps you.
Hi Jamie, As you turn the key, **** the steering wheel hard side-to-side. The anti-theft interlock between the ignition switch and the steering is just jammed. Happens to all cars from time-to-time, and that's the fix.
