Most probably you need to replace the steering lock , as it is a part of the security in the car and unless it opens , it will not start

Ignition locked will not turn over to start the car

Not much information to work on - I will assume that the key will not Mechanically move when you attempt to rotate it to start the engine?
If this is the case you may find that the inbuilt steering lock is under tension and stopping the key cylinder from moving. Try to move the steering wheel and also the key at the same time this may work.
Good luck - hope this helps

'Steering column locked' is displayed when key

I assume the car is locking and the alarm is working correctly? Try leaving the car locked then open the drivers door using the key, as soon as you open the door you should hear a chime - this is counting down to sound the alarm. Put your key into the ignition as soon as you can and try starting the car - if the problem is the same it would point to the key possibly having a faulty transponder within it or the locking module sensor or unit cannot see the key at the ignition barrel. have you another key to try. (The key itself has an identity separate from the key fob part) You will need to visit a good repair shop or the Jaguar main dealers who will have the equipment to scan the system to identify the faulty part. Other possible scenario is that there is a large current fault that is draining/shorting the system as you attempt to start
hope this helps - good luck.

Steering Wheel Locked

Being a locksmith for ten years, I have been aquainted with a number of occasions where the steering wheel gets locked up.
Always start with the least expensive option.

I'm sure this sounds silly but, have you tried turning the wheel hard right and hard left? You wouldn't believe how many times people have their tires turned to the right or left, which binds the ignition switch to the point that you can't turn the key to start the vehicle.

If the steering is in a rotational bind it can also bind the "U" joint in the steering column.

Check to make sure that you can actually operate the key cylinder and start the vehicle.

If you can operate the key cylinder of the ignition and start the vehicle, try rotating the steering wheel with the engine running, and see if that will unlock your "U"joint adjuster.

If you do all of the above and it's still unable to be adjusted, you will have to have a locksmith replace the universal joint rod in the steering column.

The main reason for these joints to fail is due to people driving with the column in an attitude of either up from the straight position, or down from the straight position.

The column is "designed" to operate from any position, BUT it causes the joint to fail due to prolonged use in an either up or down position while driving. The adjustable wheel is great for getting into and out of the vehicle, but it should always be driven in a totally straight position with NO upward or downward slant to the steering column.

I hope this will solve your problem economically.
