Hi there. My name is***** is a common issue on this vehicle. Some of the time this will occur if there is too much pressure on the steering wheel. I would pull on the steering wheel in either direction and try turning the key to see if it will release. If not then the column lock has failed and will need to be replaced. It needs to be replaced as a unit. I hope this helps. If you need more help please let me know.
