hello world, I need a little help ......
I have an oldie 1997 740il, newest situation is the steering wheel locked/stuck temporary after I turned on the ignition. The car is on but I cann't turn the steering wheel left or right. I turned on & off again and the steering wheel and finally released. What is going on here? Is it ignition bad or going bad, or steering fluid or what?
Appreciate any suggestion on this situatuion. Thank very much and your time.

I moved your thread over to the right forum, you'll get more help in here. Have you tried searching to see if anyone else has had this problem?

It could be the solenoid that locks the steering wheel in place when the key is off, or maybe it is that the ignition switch is not giving the signal to release the solenoid. Maybe.
