Unlock steering with keyless start

Just purchased a Grand Cherokee with keyless start button. I have no problem putting the transfer case into neutral for flat towing, but the steering locks. Any suggestions. Itís a 2020 model.

My DW has a 2017 GC, they have electric power steering instead of hydraulic. None have a steering lock these days, I think it was eliminated prior to 2013, as my Chevy Silverado doe not have a steering lock.
What does your owners manual say about flat-towing? I'm not saying what the 2017 manual says, as they change every year.

Have the Quad II drive, and the manual has a procedure for unlocking the transfer case. There is no mention of steering unlock.

I have a 2019... no steering lock and I am sure FCA didnt invest in designing a steering wheel lock for 2020 when a fully redesigned GC is coming in 2022.

Vehicles are required to have an anti-theft device, but it doesn't have to be a steering wheel lock. I don't know of any vehicles with keyless ignition that have steering wheel locks - they use an electronic anti-theft instead.
