steering wheel won't lock-hard to start on 2009 Toyota Tacoma

The steering wheel will not lock-it's really hard to get the truck to start. Sounds like the battery but I had that checked first. It's getting so that the steering wheel has to be turned progressively further and harder. Is this an expensive repair? An easy one?

relatively new car that may have warranty. check with your dealer first. non lock could be a fialure in the column. what was the result of the check? was it load tested by a shop? Roy
