Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The steering lock sensor is on. Might have to change steering wheel. Googled the problem at it seems that it is a factory defect as tons of people are affected.

Red steering wheel with padlock in the dash. Doesn't go away at all. Cost several thousand to fix. Car won't start sometimes others it will but steering wheel doesn't lock. Searched online and tons of other 2006-2007 BMW owners have the same problem, once they found out the problem they started keeping all the parts ion stock. I even spoke to a dealership that says they have 2 cars a week for this; absolutely insane for one dealership. Its a well known default but not recall has been issued. If the steering wheel was to lock while someone was driving it could be fatal.
