Check in the driver's side footwell in the side kick panel. There might be something called The Convenience Center which houses those little guys. If your doesn't have the "center", check inside the steering column housing. You might try turning the flashers or a blinker on and listening to hear where the clicking comes from.

try turning your steering wheel hard either way WHILE turning the key, sometimes the steering wheel locking mechanism interferes. you wont be able to turn your steering wheel like your actually turning, just move it and it should let the key turn

The most likely cause is a bad steering rack. The valves inside the rack could be stuck, broken or blocked. You could also have a bad strut(s) or ball joints that are binding the steering linkage. It could also be bad or broken motor mounts. Though less likely, it could be the bearings inside the steering column are binding up, or something pressing against the shaft and keeping it from turning freely. The most likely problem is the steering rack.
