My 2002 E46 325ci will randomly die when I'm in stop-n-go traffic and I'm moving slowly. All the lights on dashboard light up and the wheel locks in place. Could it be an electrical problem... Has this happened to anyone else? ---- My car also has 83k
No. Not alternator. If it was the alternator, this wouldn't be a reoccuring problem. It would be a problem that happens once until the battery is dead and couldn't be charged again. (Unless this just started happening today but I'd still be doubtful)
This could likely be a fuel pump. I don't understand how your steering wheel is locking up since AFAIK, the pin that locks the column in place is mechanical and would require the key to be turned to the off position...
