Hi there. It’s quite possible that the ignition lock cylinder is damaged. However, it could be an internal issue with the steering column that is causing the steering wheel to lock. I would recommend having a professional mobile mechanic come to your location to complete a steering wheel locked inspection; so they can pinpoint the source of the problem and ensure the right repairs are made.
