      Not just active steer, a steering column lock up defect. There were quite a few cases in US 325i/330i (before the changeover). Dealer action will involve anywhere from software update to replacing column and related parts under warranty.

      SUBJECT
      ELV Warning in Instrument Cluster


      MODEL
      E90, E91, E92 (3 Series)

      E60, E61 (5 Series)

      E63, E64 (6 Series)


      SITUATION
      The ELV (Electronic Steering Lock) check control warning illuminates in the instrument cluster and in some cases, engine start is inhibited. Diagnostics reveals fault code A0AA in the CAS (Car Access System) and prompts a control unit replacement.

      CAUSE
      Low voltages in the vehicle electrical system when cranking/starting the engine.

      PROCEDURE
      This problem has been integrated into DIS diagnostics. Follow diagnostics and relevant test plan using DIS V49.0 or later.
      This problem is also related to the e90 steering column click sound issue, there is a TSB out for that, just to illustrate a weak point.

      TSB language...

      SUBJECT
      Steering Column Clicking Noise

      MODEL
      E90 (3 Series) and E91 (3 Series Sports Wagon) produced up to 11/05

      SITUATION
      Customer may complain of a slight clicking noise heard, mostly at slow speed, when turning the steering wheel at about 180 degrees.

      CAUSE
      Steering column manufacturing tolerances stack up.

      CORRECTION
      In case of a customer complaint, replace the steering column only. Do not replace the steering gear and the steering spindle (lower joint assembly).

      The steering column manufacturing process has been improved in 11/05.

      PROCEDURE

      Replace the steering column per Repair Instructions RA 32 31 090.

      Perform steering angle sensor adjustment/calibration per Repair Instructions RA 61 31 996.

        I have this squeak when turning the steering during cold starts. Sounds like a puppy whining. Anyone know what the remedy is for this?

        I am waiting for a while to see if the problem becomes more pronounced or goes away before sending the car in.

            E46F, see the 2nd TSB, use that as a reference when you communicate to your SA.

              Thanks KL2DC for the tip. So far these are the 2 problems I have which needs warranty work done:

              1) CD Changer skipping/out of tune
              2) Steering column replacement

              Waiting for more quirks to appear and will send in to do 1 shot heh.

                  Hi,

                  Just FYI.

                  I had the same problem with the steering lock sign (orange color), this was fixed yesterday (July 18, 07) under warranty.
                  According to the technician he replaced the steering column.

                      I have this problem starting about a month ago, had it checked at AB Kuantan and they're ordering the parts. (under warranty)

                        I have the same problem and read thru the manual and state nothing serious and you cant do anything about it... Just state to send it for a check up...

                        After not long after... I totally cant start my car... Got to call in and toll the car back to AB to get it fix...

                        My advice to you... Go get it fix when you still can start the car and drive to AB, DON'T WAIT!

                        Its still under warranty and its totally free... For me... Should be the same for you too...

                        REMEMBER TO GIVE THEM ALL YOUR KEYS SO WHEN THEY RE-PROGRAME THE KEY, THEY RE-PROGRAME ALL!

                        I left out my other keys so now I need to re-schedule a date to go AB to have my other keys programme.

                        After they fix the re-programe all they keys, make sure you test out all the keys. INCLUDING the spare key, k?

                        Hope you get it fixed ASAP!

                        Enjoy your RIDE!

                          Darn my first Steering Lock warning lit up just now (yellow). Couldn't start the car. Had to lock and unlock the car via the remote and then tried again. Its time to get them warranty claim in. Sigh such a hassle.

                            E46, that is why I don't have my car now. At AB to fix this. They said maybe software but will see.
