Hello. There may be a couple things going on here. If the steering wheel is indeed locked in position, the steering lock mechanism behind the steering wheel may be stuck and in need of a replacement. If the steering wheel is just very hard to turn, this can be due to a broken power steering drive belt or failed power steering pump. To avoid an unsafe driving condition, have a certified mobile mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, come to your car’s location to diagnose the steering problem and have this issue corrected.
