    When I say the steering wheel is locked I need to rephrase and say that the 'steering column' is locked in one position -- the ingnition works fine and the steering wheel turns fine. I do I get the steering column to adjust?

The clicking noise is coming from the clock spring in the steering column. The clock spring is the connection between the air bag and lower harness. It should be replaced by a certified technician.

your vehicle is stuck in steering lock mode move your steering wheel towards the resistance but not to the wheel locks again just 2 inch of movement should be fine also be sure to push your key in before you rotate to the off position and that you did not go past off to accessory mode. goodluck

Key won't turn in the ignition and the steering wheel is locked


In hope that you have the right key, put him in, try to turn the steering wheel a little bit at the same time you try to unlock the ignition.Sometimes it's possible that you've used your steering wheel as help wile getting out of the car. At this case, maybe the wheel lock snaps in, but the wheels are under pressure from the ground. Now you want to unlock your car at it seams that the key wont turn. The wheels get pressure from the ground, so the whole steering is under pressure and your steering wheel pressed against the locker block. If you try to turn the locked steering wheel, you'll see that it turns appr. 1" to one side. This is the needed space to unlock with the key. I hope that works in your case.
