BMW 1series steering wheel lock symbol

Recommended Posts

Good evening gents,

Week what an evening, Mrs car all ready and cleaned to be advertised and sold as she now had a Honda crv, start the car to back it into the garage and now it comes up with the steering wheel lock symbol. Car starts and drives, you can even hear the steering wheel unlock when you insert the key. Been reading and it seems like a common problem with them, some say a software update can resolve this or the cause is low voltage with the battery. Has anyone on here come up against this without having to buy a new steering colume. Theses guys http://bmwspecialistreading.co.uk/bmw-elv-steering-lock-malfunction-fault/ seem to have come up against this issue before. But want to tech out the family here first.

Think I've narrowed down the issue, seems to be a common issue on some BMWs with the electric steering wheels. The cas module seems to give off this error if the battery starts to drop below a certain voltage. Only way to clear it is to use the ediabas toolset. And rest the cas counter
