could be a faulty safety start switch, as far as the steering wheel locking up,, most the time thats just caused by turning off the key while the wheels are up against a parking curb or something thats putting pressure on the wheels, if the key won't turn Just pull it from side to side as you wiggle the key , I'd have the safety switch in the shifter checked, and maybe adjusted
it could be a worn out key -- or a worn out / broken wafer in the lock cylinder,, or even just a stuck wafer (?) --
one thing you can try is to squirt a small amount of lubrication into the lock and cycle the key in and out a few times and see if it will free up. the next thing you can try is to look at your key and see if it looks worn,, if it does then you can have a locksmith shop try and read the key and cut you a key to factory specs,, this might work. the next thing is to just have a locksmith come out to your vehicle and replace the ignition switch and it will come with 2 new keys.. OR you yourself can tear down the steering wheel and replace the switch yourself. the new switches can be bought at your local auto parts store ( you will also want to buy the steering wheel puller and the compression plate compression tool to make sure you stay safe and ease in the removal and re-assembly of the sterring wheel parts ) -- ( these tools can also be rented from certain auto tool shops ).
REMOVE HORN PAD,TAKE OFF NUT.USE STERRING WHEEL PULLER,PULL WHEEL,MAKE SURE TO PUT BACK IN SAME POSITION!REMOVE WIRE PLUG,I TIGH AWIRE TO PLUG TO PULL NEW WIRE PLUG BACK DOWN COLEM WHEN PULL OLD ONE OUT.
easier way to go about this would be just remove the lock cylinder would be alot easier than trying to break the steer wheel lock once cylinder is removed u can start car with a screwdriver or wire in push button if u want far as kill switch goes hook that straight to the battery that will kill all power to car (must race tracks require it done this way too)

I have a 2003 buick regal. I found a small cover or tab about 3/4 of an inch square under the bottom of the steering column cover. If you remove that tab and take a thin object , like a phillips screwdriver and shove it up that hole it will release the ignition so you can turn it back and pull out your key. What a great discovery!
remove center cover and the center nut and you will need a steering wheel puller to get the steering wheel off and try this website www.autozone.com to see if they have your car listed and if you have an autozone near you can rent the puller from them
