Sounds like you have a problem when you turn the steering wheel.
There is a rotary switch behind the steering wheel which has a habit of wearing and will give the same symptoms as you are suffering.
Try starting the car and going from lock to lock on the steering....I suspect you'll hear a beep now and again.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
