Car ignition & starting

I’m looking at creating a project that will allow me to turn my car ignition on and then start the car.

However I’m worried that I might run into troubles with the steering lock. Does it automatically get disabled when ignition is on or is there another way to get around this?


I know this is a n older post, but to answer the question, the steering wheel lock is released mechanically with the ignition key/lock cylinder in most trucks and cars with the lock cylinder in the column. Some vehicles require a transponder(ignition key/fob) within a small range for the vehicles security system, which disables starting of the engine. Some vehicles don't have a wheel lock of any sort.
