Full Detail caused yellow 4x4, yellow brake light, red airbag light to come on

I got a full detail on my 2009 X3 the other week...when I left the shop my steering wheel was in a different position and the yellow 4x4, yellow brake light and red airbag light was lit up. I have driven over 1,000 and have no issues with the vehicle other then the lights won't go out. I've tried unplugging the battery and turning/locking the wheel but nothing changes. I'm assuming some kind of sensor but really dont want to put any more money into this vehicle....was hoping the lights would go out. Any help or ideas are appreciated. Thank you!

It could be any number of things; impossible to tell without exploratory troubleshooting. More importantly, what do you mean by "wheel in different position." Do you mean it was just turned, as if the vehicle was driven? Is the wheel now in a different position when driving straight, as in the wheel was removed and alignment off? I'd be wanting to make sure your airbag wasn't stolen, there's a pretty good market for those.

Or maybe they ran it into a curb?

Get or find a BMW specific scanner. Have the faults erased and see if they come come back. Iím guessing something got wet. After it is dried it may work fine.

As far as wheel in a different position...when I got I the car my wheel was adjusted to the lowest position I had to unlock and move it up to where I usually keep it. I took it over for a diagnostic and the said it had 15 codes and after narrowing it down it looks like a bad steering angle sensor. But how does that happen during a detail?
