Customer Question

i have a 57 plate 320se. this morning the alarm went off, when I went to start my car the key stuck in the ignition and it wouldn't start - not a thing not a light nothing. I called my local bmw garage and told me that the key needed to be removed with some gentle persuasion !! the steering lock wasn't on either ( as the garage suggested that it was) the car is unresponsive to both key fobs wont lock etc..the only thing that happened differently was the car alarm. also inside the car there is now a ticking coming from the glove box!? Please can you help me K
