Hi! Please help! I just found I left my key in my BMW 328i

Customer Question

Hi! Please help! I just found I left my key in my BMW 328i overnight and on trying to restart the dash board lights up and I hear a whirring from steering wheel but engine does not start or turn over, is the deadlock on? Have had such before and seem to remover if I take off or reverse polarity on battery it may unlock the deadlock. The doors are not locked. Is this correct? Please advise. Many thanks Jason
