1)You are aware that sometimes you have to rock the steering wheel back and forth to let the key line-up? 2) I would not expect the steering box adjustment to be your problem, unless, just possibly, the wheels were not in the straight ahead position when you did the adjustment, and the adjustment was therefore overly tight, and now that you are parked with the wheels at hard right or left, the steering box is so bound up that you can not turn the steering wheel. This seems unlikely, but worth mentioning.
