I have a 1991 BMW 520i and I drove to a couple places and then when I was about to leave for work, I tried to turn the key and it won't turn and the steering wheel won't lock up either when the key is not in the ignition.

Did you check fuse? and if so im not really sure as to the location your car for i have necer worked on one but on most cars it is located undder the hood usely on drivers side. Look for black box that has cover on it,cover will remove and should have diagram on it indicating location or relay in box..Like i said this may not be location on your car....good luck and if need more help fill free to contact me..
No it sounds like a problem with the lock cylinder. Spray some WD40 in the key hole and move the key in and out a few times then try it. If it doesn't work you might have to replace the lock cylinder. Also you could try a different key.
This is obviously a wiring problem, I would start testing all circuits with no key n the ignition to see which ones are drawing power. The first circuit I would check would be for the starter selonoid, as this would be the most practical place to start. then I would move onto he ignition. Good luck and remember to rate all the solutions you get.
