ELV Steering Lock Fault

Ok, so I had this come up on my car yesterday:

Car is 2006, 56 reg, and done about 70k. No warranty on it.

Looking into this online, it appears to be a common fault, but I am seeing mixed messages about if the steering column needs replacing, or if the car just needs new coding (meaning it is a software glitch).

Car starts and runs fine.

Does anyone have experience of this? Anyone know what the lock actually does/what it is meant for? What can I do to resolve this?
