The other day, returning to car after parking, 'Service steering lock' message comes up - steering locked & won't allow me to start. Locked, walked away, came back again. No joy. After about an hour got started, no idea how I got rid of it! after [unsuccessful] lengthy call to RAC telling me to 'turn the wheel forcefully and push start button with fob' [not convinced about that TBH, & didn't do the trick anyway] So cancelled RAC & seems fine since. What could cause this? Is it likely to recur? & will it be costly?

Possible CIM issue as CIM controls the steering lock.

Get diagnostic on it to see if there is a stored error code.

Hi, I got the same problem from time to time and keeps an 10mm wrench in my door pocket.
My quick fix is to take the black cable off the battery minus pole for some seconds, it resets the alarm.
I have asked the workshop if they can find anything wrong but no.
So i keep my 10mm wrench with me.
