Steering malfunction alert
I brought my '09 535i into a shop to have some work done on the struts and front suspension. The car ran fine afterwards, but within a week a I got the notice both on my dash and on my display screen. I've never had an issue with my steering before, but after getting work done on my car I get a notice out of nowhere. There were no issues with the steering/handling, which made me suspicious. Do you think a sensor was accidentally messed with which then caused the alert? Or do you think it was just bad timing? Or, did the shop do it on purpose?
Either way I'm going to put in steering fluid, but I am suspicious of the shop and if they triggered something purposefully to try and get me to return for more business, i.e. more $.
I'd really appreciate your opinion. Thanks!
