    you just have to turn the wheel a tiny bit and will allow you to turn the key and unlock the wheel. i think its the same direction as the wheel is turned....so if its all the way to the left just barley crank it to the left and you should be able to turn the key

    Yeah... it's just that the wheel locks up when you turn it after it's off... what's the actual reason for this though?

    And I thought it was common knowledge how to fix it...

    i finally got it, had to get out of the car and pull up on the wheel as hard as i could while my lil brother turned the key. who needs a jack when i can just pull up on the wheel and lift the tires off the ground lol.

    Are you saying you pulled on the wheel, as in the wheel/tire wheel?
