Locked Steering Wheel Problems

My steering wheel and ignition was locked (could not turn either) and i attempted to wiggle/turn the wheel while turning the ignition but the steering wheel would not unlock. Ended up taking it to the Ford Dealership and they couldn't unlock it either so they replaced the ignition column.

This initially fixed the problem so i could turn the ignition and steering wheel again. When i went home i decided to lock my steering wheel on purpose to see if i could get out of it and the problem was fixed, but i proceeded to have the exact same problem. No amount of wiggling or pulling the steering wheel either direction while turning the ignition has helped. I also tried pressing on the breaks while doing both aswell.

Anybody have any solutions I could try? Thank you in advance!
