It's a anti theft feature in most vehicles. So the key should turn and unlock your steering column. When you turn the steering wheel back and fourth left to right. Example doesn't matter right to left.

These are the correct answers EXCEPT they forgot to mention that you should try to turn the key as you move the steering wheel. It won't free up just turning the wheel.
