Ignition lock cylinder

Many times a cylinder will not turn when the steering wheel lock has pressure against it from the steering wheel. Wiggle the steering wheel while trying to turn the cylinder. If this is not the issue, the cover surrounding the steering column will have to be removed to access the cylinder.

Automatic transmission not shifting gears

Sound like trans is shot to me. If fluid level is correct and doesn't smell burnt check and see if it has a transmission filter. It may need changed.

My 1989 BMW 735i automatic will not go into drive at all only reverse. I pulled up to a job I was doing and spilled a half cup of a small coffee into gear shift area and I wiped it down and drove the car...

You may have inadvertently soaked the gear shift mechanism and wiring. You should first remove all cowling and clean any wiring and switches.

How can I remove plastic bezel around shifter so I can clean spilled coffee that may be in console under bezel?

Pretty easy, no tools required if you have strong nails :)

First open the center console lid.

Grab the back edge of the trim panel where it stops at the top of the console box and pull upward.
Work your way to the front disengaging the clips by lifting up.
When you get to the front, unhook the connector from the 12V outlet and the heated seats buttons (if equipped).
Set the trim panel aside

To remove the round trim around the shifter (likely not necessary)
Remove philips screw from shift knob and lift shift knob off shaft.
Lift round shift trim bezel off by disengaging 4 clasps located low at corners of bezel.
Disconnect illumination bulb from bezel and set bezel aside for cleaning

During install, make sure the shift trim is inserted into shaft so the indicator will line up.

Automatic shift has trouble getting into gear

If you have spilled any coke or coffee on shifter it will cause the shift lock actuator to stick if you have floor shifter. You will have to remove center console to clean. If nothing has been spilled shift lock actuator needs to be replaced.
