Angry Steering Wheel and ignision locked up

We have a 1994 C280 with 139K miles. The wife went shopping and parked the car. When she returned, the Wheel locked as well as the ignision. We tried to turn the wheel in both directions and play with the key inside ingnision. Nothing. This is the first time this has happend. Anyone have some information as to how to correct this?

Well I don't have that car but one question is does the key turn in the lock OK? Also did you try searching the site?

1998 C230 330,000 miles (currently dead of second failed EIS, yours will fail too, turning you into the dealer's personal human cash machine)
1988 F150 144,000 miles (leaks all the colors of the rainbow)
Previous stars: 1981 Brava 210,000 miles, 1978 128 150,000 miles, 1977 B200 Van 175,000 miles, 1972 Vega (great, if rusty, car), 1972 Celica, 1986.5 Supra

Welcome to the Huf business model

Huf, the manufacturer of the ignition lock cylinder, made a part that every MB owner will become familiar with late in the car's life. Do a search here for ignition, lock, cylinder, and you will find enoughinfo ot help you along.
If you do get the key to positions 2 or 3, don't turn it back - it makes replace much easier.
