Bmw 750i 2008

Asked by Apr 22, 2017 at 02:38 AM about the 2008 BMW 7 Series 750i RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The other day while I was searching for a parking
space and driving around 25 mph, my car stopped
moving out of the blue. I had the check engine light
illuminated orange on the dash. I attempted to
make a turn, but the steering wheel was stuck and
the engine sort of unresponsive. Then I put the car
in park and turned the engine off. I restared it and it
ran fine again. I had a similar situation before but
only with my engine, which was sluggish and the
car had trouble accelerating. What is wrong with
my car? How can I fix this?
