|ghj||Thank you, Gremlin, that is exactly what I did. I don't usually use the steering lock. I think my seat is not in it's usual position and with a thick coat on I must have caught the steering wheel as I got out.|

|ghj||The reason the car wouldn't start was because the steering lock was locked on. Just need to know if it gets stuck again the best way of unlocking it.|

I bought my automatic B-max June 2018. Perfect car for a 15 reg. It was due it's MOT this coming April 2019 and service due in June 2019. On Wednesday I had it mot'd and serviced. On Thursday due to having been serviced I took it for a decent run. I stopped after about 50 miles and all was fine. When I came back to the car it wouldn't start. All the electrics were working but just wouldn't turn over. It did eventually. No idea why this should happen.
Reading other posts might be loose battery connection.
