    My speedo has failed and the following instrument panel warning lights have illuminated:
    DSC (Yellow), Brake Warning Light (Yellow then goes Red), ABS (Yellow) & Runflat Indicator (Yellow).
    I think this must be something associated with rotation sensor(s)?
    Can anyone advise me what parts or electrical components need checking or replacing as I expect this has happened before?
    I want to keep repair costs down & was going to go to an Auto Electrical diagnostic, but thought I would ask the forum first.
    Any guidance would be most appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    IIRC the nearside front sensor controls the speedo. I'm sure this was what Ronnie mentioned when we were looking into a temporary fault with LiLo's 325ti

    A diagnostic scan will determine the problem

    Nearside rear sensor does the Speedo, but get a scan to be sure. Otherwise you could get a sensor for nothing
