SOURCE: 2003 Ford Focus ZX5 Steering Wheel

All you need is two inexpensive things to fix this. 1. Hammer and 2. WD-40. First, put the key in the ignition and tap it with the hammer. (this should unlock the steering wheel and the iginition) Second, spray some WD-40 in the key opening on the ignition, then put the key in again and proceed to tap it some more with the hammer. (WHEN I SAY TAP THE HAMMER I DO NOT MEAN HIT IT WITH FULL FORCE)... Any who keep put WD-40 and tapping it until you can turn the key without the help of the hammer... (should be at least 4 times) THE PROBLEM IS THAT WITH TIME DEBRI BUILDS UP IN THE IGNITION, AND THIS CAUSES THE STEERING TO LOCK UP WHEN YOU PLACE THE KEY IN THE IGNITION. THE HAMMER UNLOCKS THE SPRINGS IN THE IGNITION AND THE WD-40 CONVERTS THE DEBRI TO LIQUID SO IT CAN CLEAN THE IGNITION...

SOURCE: steering wheel locks up when parked

Although the car is not in front of me, it sounds like when you park ( is this parallel parking ? ) your steering wheel is turned hard to the left or right, which creates extreme pressure on the steering wheel lock. In order to help overcome this problem, you must "armstrong" the steering wheel in the same direction the front wheels are turned. Locking up on the freeway with this same issue. Highly unlikely.

Durango steering column locked...how can I fix


Try turning the wheel slightly and turning the key, this will relieve pressure off the steering lock mechanism. If that doesn't work, try tapping the key. That is a common problem on 99-05 Caravans

Noise coming from the front end of my 2003 dodge durango


You didn't specify if your vehicle is 2- or 4-wheel drive. If 4 wheel, you may have a failing contstant velocity joint which, when having developed worn spots in the cage can cause the noise you describe.
Typically, turning the wheel back and forth can cause the noise to become less or more loud and often the combination of a specific speed and driving a certain curve radius can cause the noise to nearly disappear or become more pronounced.
