Hi Nicco, Take the vehicle to a workshop where it can be scanned. The code can be deleted via the scanner. Regards John

SOURCE: terrible noice when I turn the steering wheel on my 2001 BMW 325i

Make sure you check your power steering fluid... if it's even low, it will make a terrible noise...run it on empty too long and your can ruin your power steering pump.

once you get the airbag removed, the wheel is secured to the shaft with a nut. can't remember what size it is, but i remember i didn't have to go out and buy a special socket for it.

If you can start vehicle it is in the column, Key switch is not engaging unlock. be sure to disconnect battery and remove fuse for airbag, if you don't you might be in for one hell of a scare or injury and uip to 750.00 to replace.

When i try to start my bmw the key wont turn


The steering will have a few degrees of play, even when locked. Pull the wheel down(or up whicheer is easier) and turn the key.

The steering lock jams the key in there. If the wheel is turned to the left, turn it further to the left and turn the key.

Steering wheel and ignition look 1992 bmw 525i


Sorry I have not done a BMW but steering wheels usually require a puller to remove from the spline.
I have mostly worked on *** cars and the steering lock and key are removed without the steering wheel removed. The lock assembly attaches around the steering column, and is held on by some tamperproof bolts which break the hex off on installation, so you are left with round heads that look like rivets, I use a small chisel or punch to get them turning, it may be possible to drill the heads off as well, Sorry again if my info only relates to japanese cars, but hopfully I helped with the steering wheel removal.

My BMW 325i's steering wheel is locked and the car wont start.


Your steering column most likely is defective and you should be able to get this fixed under warranty. BMW discontinued this part in 2007. Its might go off if you put the key in the ignition and wait 5-10 minutes, but only maybe.

Red warning light on dashboard for steering lock. engine will not start. why?


It sounds like your steering lock mechanism is faulty. You could try wiggling the wheel as you try to turn the key. The engine won't turn because it's a safety issue if the car will start and the steering is still locked if you accidentally move the car.....

This was a huge issue with BMW

Car will not start and steering wont unlock


Your steering wheel may be jammed. This happens when you park on an incline and the force of the car rolling back jams the steering. Try to turn the steering wheel hard in one direction while trying to crank, then the other direction if the first doesn't work. You may need to take pressure off of the steering lock by pushing the car a little bit.
