Q: anti theft activated on 2008 Mercury Sable

Edit
I hit a pot hole and now my anti theft is activated and keeps locking my steering wheel. It will start after jiggling the steering wheel and turning the key. Could the pot hole have triggered this problem?

The anti theft steering lock is part of the mechanical part of the ignition switch. The covers around the steering column would need to be removed to inspect it. Is your car still under warranty (it is pretty new!). Don't mention the pothole.
