Steering wheel lock error message

Well this is just getting annoying now. Just got ANOTHER error message...this time the steering lock warning symbol in red has appeared, car will still start and drive ok...yet the error message says that i wont be able to start the engine again..
So I have read posts stating possible solution to fix this problem:

1. Steering column needs replacing, which would be well over $1000, unless it gets replaced by good will from BMW (and apparently there's a recall for this?)
2. Battery needs replacing, not enough voltage to trigger the unlock (but my battery was only replaced 4 months ago)
3. Reprogram and software update

Has anyone had this error before, would appreciate any advice on which possible options to take or other altenative solutions to this..
