WHAT SHOULD I DO WHEN MY STEERING WHEEL IS LOCKED?

1993 Audi Other

This happens to my car a few times when I don't drive it for a while. But I put the key in the ignition last night and it would not turn. So I wiggled the wheel a little bit. I think I wiggled a little too much because I heard a noise and now the wheel will not turn towards the right. And the key still wont turn in the ignition. What do I do?

Try turning the steering wheel slightly to the side that it can move and wiggle the key to turn the ignition.

Seems the key cylinder is bad and requires attention. A locksmith should be able to help you on this.
