Steering wheel wont go up or down or in and out

    When I shut the key off the steering wheel goes in, but not up and away. The manual control button only offers limited travel for the steering wheel. I am taking it to the dealer next to fix, and I expect to pay through the nose for the cure.

Well this isn’t a good solution to the problem but I had the same thing and I just unplugged the sensor so I would be able to used the tilt feature without problem I imagine if I get a new sensor the problem will be fixed. When its plugged in it won’t let you move the wheel up and down with out issues if at all but if you take off the cover and unplug the sensor on the right side it will let you tilt the wheel. Also I saw a TSB saying the wires were to tight and this is what the problem was I loosened them up but I am pretty certain it is my sensor. Hope this helps.

The steering wheel is locked and wont move and the ingntion wont turn

This is usually because of serious proload. Happens easily, with power shut down, now too hard to release.

So, you get the key ready and apply normal pressure to turn key.... then ARM STRONG the steering wheel, one way and the other. Somewhere in there, the key system should release.

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.

Try pressing the key down little bit while you are trying to turn it towards ignition, at the same time slowly turning the steering wheel clockwise and counter clockwise ( it's locked but it still moves a little bit), it should release the steering wheel lock. hope it helps
