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.

SOURCE: car steering wheel locked; car won't start

If this is a floor shifter or center console shifter there is actually a lock release next to the shifter. Look next to the shifter handle and you should see a small square plug in the console remove the plug and you will see a little white button in it this is the shifter release push it and you can move the shifter.

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.

common problem and will probably nessesitate replacing ignition switch barrel and steering lock, you will have to remove upper and lower steering covers and lower steering column to lowest position to allow you access to the two shear bolts which hold the steering lock assembly to the steering column, your local bmw agent shoul be able to get you the parts to allow you to use your own keys.

How to use BMW GT1 ?


After replacing the battery, battery replacement has to be registered in the power module.Newer bmw's can experience battery draw issues. usually after battery replacment the active steering has to be re-aligned. you can try turning the steering wheel lock to lock to see if that solves your problem (usually only works on older cars) if you can find a shop that has a GT1 (bmw's older diagnostic equipment) they should be able to reset the light. At the same time if the vehicle has a battery draw and the power module is disconnecting the battery when the charge level gets low,that is your root problem and you will end up with an active steering fault over and over

Hi , the steering lock light is to notify you that there is a fault with the steering lock , if this has been an ongoing fault just resetting it lock will not help , it may require the control unit to be re-programed or the complete steering column will require replacing , regards Mark

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.

The steering wheel of my BMW 325i, 1993 model will not turn and its locked.the key will not turn also.


Hi there,

Sometimes if the wheels are turned when the vehicle is turned off, there is stress put on the steering lock plate which can cause the symptoms you are describing.

If this is the problem, it is remedied by turning the steering wheel a little further (in whichever direction the wheels are facing) to take the stress off the plate. Try the key at the same time. It doesn't take much to release the lock pin. The results should be immediate.

Best regards,
Mike

My steering wheel is locked up...called service they said to retry till it unlocked..what is wrong with it? Its a 2006 BMW 3 series.


Have you parked the car with the wheels turned fully one way , or is the wheel hitting the kerb

If so you will need to rock the steering wheel from side to side as you turn the key so that you take the weight off the pin which locks the steering wheel
