Steering locked

My steering wheel is locked, and so is the ignition. How do I unlock the steering wheel so I can change the ignition column?

Welcome to the forums! Put the key in the ignition, release the tension on the steering wheel, turn the ignition to the "on" position. That will unlock it. I know that is too simple, but you obviously have more to your problem than you are telling us. SO, give us the whole picture and maybe there will be a solution forthcoming.

chandler's right. what he did not mention is that sometimes you have to put entire body weight onto the steering wheel, to release the locking pin. good luck. why do you need to replace the steering column? there's no ignition column in cars....
