SOURCE: Key won't turn
You are very welcome, glad to help.
Now, since you know "how to release it"; here is a tip: Turn the key off, and pull it out. Turn the wheel to the left, and wait for it to lock. Observe where it locks. Unlock it, and repeat the procedure, turn to the right. Observe again. Now you will know where the wheel locks, and if you avoid having the wheel close to those locations, the wheel will never lock on you again!
The graciousness of a FixYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hello. A vibration in the steerign wheel indicates an issue with the front tires. They are either out of balance, and would need to be rebalanced, or it is possible (although remotely) that the tire(s) may be compromised (after hitting a pothole), the belts in the tire may be corrupted. What I would suggest is to take the car to a reputable tire place, and get the balance checked. While the tire is on the balancer, the Tech will be able to see if the tire is out-of-round due to possible road damage. Probably just a tire balance problem. Thanks for choosing FixYA for assistance.
