The steering lock should dis-engage as soon as the key is inserted. Once that happens the key will turn. Was the steering lock noisy prior to this problem? I've seen several problems like yours solved by replacing the Electronic Steering Lock(ESL). I've seen just as many solved by replacing the EIS. I would make sure the ESL is getting power before replacing anything though. Also remember, the ESL is just an electric motor. A few light taps with a ratchet while repeatedly inserting the key is an easy test. There's a lot more to the EIS/ESL than can be covered here but start with the basics. Keep us posted.
