It might be a problem with the the Active steering system, similar to a post I read in another BMW forum. I have attached the post below:
Active Steering Problem with new 5er
Bummer everyone! My new 530i is already in the service department, because the active steering warning light keeps coming on, and the active steering is going out! Less than 600 miles on the vehicle, and have been driving it very carefully until break in is over. When the warning comes on it says Active Steering Malfunction, and then it says, Active Steering Disabled, Initialize. Took it to the service department once already, and it showed the fault, but they could find nothing wrong with it. They went over it with a fine tooth comb, and re- initialized the steering, but it keeps happening. So now I have left it there, and because the car is on such cutting edge technology, and the techs are still schooling for it, they may have to bring in an engineer for BMW. I am hoping they get it fixed, it's my first bimmer, and I must say, this is disappointing. Has anyone else had a similar problem, and did they fix it? Thanks.
I would go in to the dealer and kick some doors and bang some desks! Please don't be a nice guy. You are paying big$$$ for the car! The owner for the above car still has not gotten her car fixed yet at this point. Last time I heard, they are replacing it with another car.
