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

2006 bmw 325i won't start shows steering wheel with lock on it on display. slow to start yesterday. lights, radio work. tried charging battery without any luck


f 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.

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.

remove cover between seats to expose cable adjusters and back them off till slack. jack up rear of car (chock front wheels) remove a rear wheel stud and you can view the star wheel adjuster inside the drum, with a thin screwdriver wind it up till wheel locks then back off about 15 clicks, do same on other wheel, wind up adjusters inside car till wheels lock at about 5 clicks, check for binding when h / brake is fully down, thats it.

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.

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.
