Its the "EML" warning light in a BMW indicates a problem with the "drive by wire" throttle control system."

That red light indicates u have loss BRAKE FLUiD in ur system and needs to TOP UP the brake master. It also indicates s pressure loss in the brake system and u have to check the FLUiD, LEAK and ur BRAKE PADS!

Check all of these and tell us wut happened!

Steering wheel and ignition look 1992 bmw 525i


Sorry I have not done a BMW but steering wheels usually require a puller to remove from the spline.
I have mostly worked on *** cars and the steering lock and key are removed without the steering wheel removed. The lock assembly attaches around the steering column, and is held on by some tamperproof bolts which break the hex off on installation, so you are left with round heads that look like rivets, I use a small chisel or punch to get them turning, it may be possible to drill the heads off as well, Sorry again if my info only relates to japanese cars, but hopfully I helped with the steering wheel removal.

My BMW 325i's steering wheel is locked and the car wont start.


Your steering column most likely is defective and you should be able to get this fixed under warranty. BMW discontinued this part in 2007. Its might go off if you put the key in the ignition and wait 5-10 minutes, but only maybe.

Red warning light on dashboard for steering lock. engine will not start. why?


It sounds like your steering lock mechanism is faulty. You could try wiggling the wheel as you try to turn the key. The engine won't turn because it's a safety issue if the car will start and the steering is still locked if you accidentally move the car.....

This was a huge issue with BMW

2004 BMW 525i Active Steering problem


The Active Steering system uses a Papst brushless dc motor to rotate the cage (ring gear) containing the planet gears a planetary gearbox at the bottom of the steering column. The motor effectively changes the steering ratio by increasing or decreasing the amount of gearbox output rotation relative to changes in the steering-wheel angle input. The resulting ratio depends on the speed of the car. For instance, a low 10:1 ratio gives high maneuverability for parking in tight spaces, with less than two turns of the steering wheel, lock to lock. To track straight at highway speeds, where even a small steering input can produce a quick sideways acceleration, the electric drive boosts the ratio to 20:1. Cars without Active Steering typically have ratios halfway between (specifically 14.1:1 for the BMW).
....
Now, if your active steering does not work , the car reverses back to power steering and the ratio is 15.1:1 so the car can be driven but the "active steering " is not working and still needs to be fixed.
It the unit needs to be replaced and your car is not under warranty, the repair cost may reach 5000 dollars.
