[DML] Re: steering wheel lock

This is an unusual problem meaning that it doesn't seem to happen
often in Deloreans. I would try some spray lubricant into and around
the lock cylinder while wiggling the key and the steering wheel. If
you can't get it to move you will have to disassemble, clean,
lubricate, and reassemble the steering column. Maybe try another key?
