Your lock is broke, It was probably forced up or down while in its locked position and it detached. It's also possible for the tilt assembly connection bolts to have loosened over time.

The red steering wheel in the instrument cluster means that the steering wheel is not locked into position. There should be a black lever on the left or right side of the steering column. This is the lever to release when you want to adjust the steering wheel up or down. Push the lever back up to lock into place and the indicator should go out. If it is still on when the steering wheel is locked, then that could be a electrical fault with the sensor.

Slightly turn the steering wheel and it should let you turn the key to on position

Turn the steering wheel hard to the left or right while turning the key.

The lever is located on the bottom of the steering column. If it's not locking, the lever may just be jammed and you just need to wiggle it a bit.

Usually means the car has a tilt (adjustable) steering wheel.

In my 00', Golf which is probably the same as yours there is a latch under the steering column. Pull down on it and it should release. The steering wheel neck should then become adjustable. From that point adjust to your liking and then push bottom latch back into original position.

Your steering wheel is most likely locked, you should try to get your steering wheel in a different position, and it will start right up. My car used to do it all the time, it was such a pain. Good luck.

I found that if you pull the steering wheel all the way to the right, even if the steering wheel is locked, then insert your key, it will turn.

Steering wheels are generally locked from the ignition switch. It is supposed to lock only in the OFF position. If you steering locks in any other key position, you likely have a problem with the linkage rod or cable that connects the ignition lock cylinder to the steering column. You have to take apart the dash and possibly the steering column to fix this.
