    jiggle the steerin wheel back and forth while trying to turn key, or if wheel is not locked, turn it till it locks, then key should turn if all else is working.

    if thre car is under warranty the dealer will tow it in no charge . I do not think a regular back yard person could do the repairs but i could be wrong steve

    Thanks bradfordvettes, It's an 05, im not sure on the warranty, a local tow co. got it to the dealers, believe it or not the owner is a certified BMW mech. w/ local dealer for years. He told me he's afraid to drive a car with the possibility of the steering wheel locking. Sounds familiar. Thanks again...............
