Audi A6 TDI 2006, the car didn't start, steering wheel locked and no display on the dashboard

Blow off water from the fuse box plate, relays, fuses and connectors.
Test all the fuses. Body main fuse may have blown up due to the short circuit during wash.

Instrument panel lights are nor burning

Lights? more than one? It is extremely improbable that many lights burned at the same time. Jiggle the dashboard dimmer wheel (used for light attenuation adjustment) to see if the lights come back to life. Dimmers, being rheostats, have the nasty habit of burning spots, so they work only at a different location than the burnt spot. Many burnt dashboard lights might be an indication that they got too much voltage. ( Bad voltage regulator). Dashboard lights are placed in the rear of the assembly, and screw right into it. Dashboard must be taken out, and it isnt simple. Purchase a full set of dashboard lights at the car dealer before taking down the dashboard, because you dont want to find out that you dont have the proper bulbs, and the whole dashboard already disassembled.

Dashboard symbol, car with lock above, is illuminated

sounds to me like you have a bad transponder in your key or reciever in your steering collumn, this is just a guess since you have not given us much to go on, year make and model of the car....
however my 08 shelby cobra did something similar after my keys went thru the washing machine...had to buy a new key
