  1. ASC to DSC ABS swapping of components

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hello, My car is a 51 plate 330D and I have the dreaded 3 lights on the dash which I know indicates there is an issue with the ABS system and more specifically I believe it is the ABS ecu, as the error code is 5DF5 (internal ecu fault). I have removed from a 2002 320D the complete ABS unit...
  2. 2006 E90 320d - Very intermittent DSC warning.

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hello all, Just purchased a 2006 E90 320d M Sport edition with 68k miles and love the car so far. The only issue I am having with it is that at seemingly random times while accelerating, the DSC warning light will chime and pop up then drop off in about 3 seconds. There's no noteworthy...
  3. Yellow DSC & BRAKE light cause?

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I’ll be driving my 2001 325i and all of the sudden it feels like the drivers side front wheel grabs for a second and then lets go. Then the yellow dash DSC and “Brake” light will come on and stay on until I shut the car off. They usually reset. Occasionally, when driving, the yellow DSC light...
  4. BMW E90 320d 2006 DSC Problem.

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    I have a BMW E90 320d 2006. The problem i'm having started few weeks ago. When i was driving along around 60 the DSC light would flash for a few seconds cutting power to the engine at times. The problem would be solved by holding the DSC Light until the traction control would go of. I ignored...

    General BMW Discussions
    Right guys I require a little help. So tonight my car (2010 E91 330d) decided to throw a bit of a wobbler! Had loads of alarms go off for ABS, DSC, Flat tyre monitoring and a couple of others. When braking lightly at very low speed 15-20mph the brake pedal sometimes feels like it pushes back and...

  7. 2002 E46 330ci - Dropped a DSC pressure sensor… somewhere…?

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    OK, you all have permission to laugh at me - but only if you offer some useful advice afterwards…! Yesterday I was changing the DSC pressure sensor, but dropped the old one as I got it out (it's in one of those places you can't get a good grip). As it's now leaking brake fluid I tried to get...
  8. 2002 E46 330ci - Understanding DSC Error codes

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    The DSC light and an amber version of the handbrake light came on after my wife had to do an emergency stop. I've had a look for relevant codes under IPNA and found the following: Under steering angle sensor: 'keine asc2 botschaft' (see full error: ) Under ASC...
  9. 2010 E90 DSC light coming on

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    DSC light on for 1 minute Please assist. I'm stuck. I start the engine on my 2010 E90 316d ES. (118,000 miles). I reverse out of my drive and the orange triangle surrounded by a circle with an arrow, and exclamation mark appears. The sounder bongs once. I believe this is DSC warning. I drive off...
  10. Modified spanner for DSC brake sensors

    Technical Guides for the E46
    I had to change one of the DSC sensors, and they are a bit of a pig to undo with standard tools. It's 27mm hex head. A normal socket wont fit due to the connector. A deep 27mm is too long and hits the body (plus there's no way a ratchet handle would fit). A standard combination spanner hits...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi Folks, I have just started to loose power momentarily as I power through 2nd, then 3rd etc and as this happens, the DSC warning light (car skidding) flickers then goes as the car pulls through, could this be a turbo problem? There is no whistle or smoke. Would the use of dirty diesel...

  14. E46 2004 320d - Does the system need a recalibration for new DSC pressure sensors

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I've found that Russian site for the E46 service manual. It mentions a "you must reconcile using DIS (Diagnostic Information System) by selecting the "Additional Functions" menu item." Does that mean recalibrate somehow, and it's just a poor translation? What is the procedure to...
  15. E46 2004 320d - Non BMW dsc brake pressure sensors

    General BMW Discussions
    I'm looking to replace one or both of the DSC brake pressure sensors on a 2004 320d E46. Are there any non-BMW parts recommended? Ebay has lots of cheaper alternatives, does anyone have a known good supplier (ebay or otherwise), and not one of the Chinese copy parts?

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi, My dsc is always off, i have no light for it on my dash and pressing the button does nothing. A faulty button would explain not getting a light, but that should mean its always on and cant be turned off? I have an orange warning light on for my abs but its the same light that goes red when...
