Have you tried a different key? Looks like it could be some issue with reading the chip in the key.

steering column lock malfunction. try jiggling the wheel left and right before starting.

you may need to have the steering column replaced

Yea i tried moving the wheel how much does the steering column replacement run?

Also how do you reset the car compute? Just removing the battery cables doesnt do it

list price is 550 for the column. IIRC, its 2 hours of labor by the book. so 7-800 for the replacement if you arent under warranty

as for resetting the DME, you need a bmw specific diagnostic cable.

Important point: Your original factory warranty lasts 4 years.

To verify that fact, you must delve deep into your BMW supplied documentation.

Did you find it?

I see your error image is a LOCK and a STEERING WHEEL.

Try searching, say, Google for BMW STEERING WHEEL LOCK.

Is your Karma good?

Also, you might look here, a link I at least have posted a few times here lately.

Or, if adventurous, try searching, say, Google for BMW FAULT GRAPHICS

How's your Karma now?
