SOURCE: BMW remote control problem
I have a e60 525i that I just brought and it has the same problem, the owners manual suggests driving with the key in the ignition for a long time as the batteries are rechargable and may have gone flat, i have tried this and it doesnt seem to work
i also read something about getting water in the aerial about the rear window and that wrecks the receiever. My car isn;t under warranty so not looking forwarding to taking it to bmw

The Active Steering system uses a Papst
brushless dc motor to rotate the cage (ring gear) containing the planet
gears a planetary gearbox at the bottom of the steering column. The
motor effectively changes the steering ratio by increasing or
decreasing the amount of gearbox output rotation relative to changes in
the steering-wheel angle input. The resulting ratio depends on the
speed of the car. For instance, a low 10:1 ratio gives high
maneuverability for parking in tight spaces, with less than two turns
of the steering wheel, lock to lock. To track straight at highway
speeds, where even a small steering input can produce a quick sideways
acceleration, the electric drive boosts the ratio to 20:1. Cars without
Active Steering typically have ratios halfway between (specifically
14.1:1 for the BMW).
Now, if your active steering does not work , the car reverses back to power steering and the ratio is 15.1:1 so the car can be driven but the "active steering " is not working and still needs to be fixed.
It the unit needs to be replaced and your car is not under warranty, the repair cost may reach 5000 dollars.

This is what I could find. It doesn't have a steering whee radiol control fuse but has 2 fuses for the radio. It seems to be the same panel across the board for BMW's. 4x4's, diesels, gas, 6 and 8 cylinders, etc. Hope it helps.

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.
