HELP! steering wheel suddenly locked!

I was spraying down the nuts and bolts so I can install my BB this week and after I sprayed the back two areas, I turned the wheel so I can reach the front area better and when I went to turn the wheel back it locked. I can't start the car either. I don't know what to do. I don't think the pb blaster did any harm. I have an 05 TJ X. any help would be great

Edit: false alarm!

The jeep starting and steering wheel locking are two different issues. The steering wheel locks (along with many other vehicles) when the key is out or in off position.
