  9. DSC/Traction control light randomly comes on

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    This has occurred a few times recently that while I'm driving I hear a beep and look on the dash to see that the dsc/traction control has been turned off. It can't be turned on by pressing the dsc button either, only by restarting the engine. Any ideas why this may be? Cheers

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi ya I've just purchased the above car from an Approved Used BMW dealer and so far I'm very impressed with the performance. However, I think the traction control is far too sensitive. Admittedly, I'm normally accelerating hard when the light is on, but it mostly happens when I'm over taking...
