1997 Oldsmobile Achieva

Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Oldsmobile Achieva Two Wheel Drive Automatic 95000 miles

The ignition wouldn't shut completely off, it was on just enough that I couldn't remove key and battery was still on. I was able to remove the key after a whiel by using the override button under the steering column but, the steering wheel is locked up. How can I repair? Is there something that I can do to prevent this problem in the future.
