Steering Wheel Not Responding When Turning Car On & Off

I recently noticed that when I turn the car off and remove the key, the steering wheel no longer retracts and moves up for easy exit. Same is true when I get in the car and start it. The wheel does move when I use the button to the left (up, down, in and out) so there is power and function just not automatically.

Any thoughts? Is this a setting or memory problem?

Car is a 2010 X5M.

Thanks in advance.

I have same model/year.

For a time, it (steering wheel/column) would go up when exiting, but I would have to bring it down myself.

Now, it doesn't move upon exit without me doing it 'manually'.

Doesn't really bother me, so I never asked about it.

Since your under warranty, just go to the dealer!

Mine does it every once in awhile about 1 out of every 20 times it will not come down to my memory setting. Occasionaly it will not retract. I dont really want them ripping the thing apart so until it stops working altogether Ill live with it.

Glad I'm not alone. Yes, its under warranty but not going to make a special trip. It's actually okay as I don't have to wait for it to move up/down, back/forth but it's definitely not working correct. I'm just raising it to exit for now.

I'm not sure I want them ripping apart the dash either..... my wifes 50i did it as well but then started working again if I recall correctly.
