Use the key, if it wont turn try jerking the steering wheel in both directions while turning the key, sometimes when the wheel is turned when parked the key lock gets stuck due to pressure on the lock cylinder

SOURCE: steering wheel is locked nd wont unlock even with

Typically, the steering is preloaded. This happens when car is turned off with some steering assist being applied (whether you know it or not).

Often you have to manhandle the wheel in one direction or the other while turning the key.

My car can not turn the steering wheel


The steering wheel is under pressure from turning the steering when stopped.
Turn the steering wheel slightly so the pressure is released from the ignition lock and you will able to then turn the ignition key to unlock the steering wheel.

I have 1994 the problem is that shifter locks and not move my gears


Is the car able to start? If not then you need to unlock the steering column first by moving the steering wheel and the ignition key at the same time to unlock. Once unlock you should have no problems. Good Luck

How do you remove the ignition switch on a ford 250 1994 model?


Do you mean the key and tumbler, or the switch down on the bottom of the steering column? If you mean the switch, just lower your steering column by removing the cover at the bottom of the dash, and then remove the 2 bolts on either side of the column. The switch is near the base of the column, and the rod that runs from the ignition switch goes into it.
If you mean the key and tumbler, you have to pull the steering wheel, remove the screws from the signal cam, and then remove the locking bolt that holds the tumbler. You will need a steering wheel puller to remove the snap ring, and to reinstall.

1994 ford probe, steering wheel locks upand I can't turn the ignition.


Make sure there is no tension on your steering wheel, ie; wheels are straight and the steering wheel is not sitting sideways.
Sometimes the pressure from any kind of bind on the front wheels/rack and pinion, can cause the ignition to lock. Especially when parked on inclines.

I need to unlock the colume


Colume?  Did you mean "steering column"? as in steering wheel?  Usually turning the key in the ignition as you turn the steering wheel will unlock the steering column.  This may take some considerable force depending on the way the car is resting (on a hill, against a curb, with sideways pressure on the wheels).      Being more specific your problem will always yield a more helpful solution.
