Hello my name is Angel,

Sounds to me like the key is not registering with the vehicles security system, the system locked the steering wheel because it detected that the ignition was trying to be accessed without the registered key. first thing you can try is replace the battery in the key, it should have buttons on it for unlock and lock. you can look up a video that shows how to change the KEYFOB (KEY Finger Operated Button) battery. and they cost like 15 bucks at your local auto parts store.
