Its ma first time.

When the steering wheel lock warning comes on this is a failure of the internal steering lock inside the steering column. When this happens the steering column will not release and the steering wheel remain locked.

Have any of you can tried to disconnect the battery for 10 minutes and then retry? Yes the steering column usually needs to be replaced due to the lock is not replaceable separately but this usually helps if you don't have the cash.

I hope this information is helpful. good luck
