Sometimes you can't turn the key to unlock the steering wheel. This is caused sometimes by the steering being in acertain position that places pressure on the mechanism and it locks up. Try turning the steering wheel in the direction that it is already turned toward if this is the case. If not try moving the wheel in the direction it seems has more play while trying to turn the ignition switch.

My stering wheel is lock how can i unlocked


If the steering wheel is under pressure (can happen even with the wheels straight ahead) the lock mechanism can be putting pressure on the key making it very hard for the key to release the lock mechanism. Try pulling on the wheel in one direction and turning the key. If nothing, try turning the wheel the other direction and try turning the key. You may need to replace the lock mechanism. This usually involves being able to turn the key in the lock or having to drill the lock. You are probably going to need a locksmith for this one. You will need a replacement lock cyliner mechanism if the locksmith has to punch the lock.
