The steering column lock is part of the security so unfortunately we cannot disable it. First make sure the battery is fully charged as low voltage can cause this. I see you already disconnected the battery but try just disconnecting the negative battery terminal cable for about an hour. If it still does not reset then the dealer will need to read the faults stored in the vehicle. Let me know.
Unfortunately only the factory tool can read faults in that module.
Unfortunately there is no efficient way to disable it.
