Mein Auto: 530d 2007 m-sport
Looking for help 2007 530d active steering

Hi guys, I have a BMW 530d I purchased 4 months ago and it has been great. In the first month I got an error on start up " active steering failed to start" had very heavy steering after 1 minute or so it goes back to normal and error is gone. Slowly it has become more frequent gone from once a month to once a week and now it is every time I start the car but still by the time I leave my driveway it is fine steering back to normal and error gone. From what I have read online I think maybe the battery could cause this? And would explain it slowly getting worse. The fluid level is fine I topped it up made no difference. Any input appreciated
