    Hi all, 2002 E46 330ci SMG (SSG?) with 117k on it. Got the 3 lights on the dash (ABS/DSC/h-brake), so I try to scan the car to find out the issue: Hmm... strange... a generic OBD cannot read the car? Goes to a local garage to use his LAUNCH system... no connection. Visit BMW specialists...

  3. Faulty DSC

    General E46 Forum
    Hello everyone! :hi: Got an issue with my DSC-system. The antispin and DSC dont work but the abs works. When I diagnose the DSC MK6.0 unit it doesn't give any errors, and it doesn't seem like the DSC main unit is the problem. The warning lights for handbreak and dsc is both destoryed by some...
  4. 323Ci Automatic Shift at Redline

    Driveline, Engine & DME Tuning
    Sorry in advance if I posted in the wrong forum. :hi: I took my 323ci for a fun day at a wet skidtrack, disabled DSC and it slid quite easily and was a lot of fun despite being a open diff automatic. I left it in steptronic mode the whole day and had one downside which was quite annoying when...
  5. Overactive DSCIII - No Lights

    General E46 Forum
    Can't seem to be able to diagnose this issue. I don't have a code reader, but my buddy checked a while back and nothing was showing. DSC lights are not on but here is what happened. Started noticing traction control turning on in a couple instances that surprised me over a week. Then got...
  6. Yellow DSC & BRAKE light cause?

    General E46 Forum
    I’ll be driving my 2001 325i :excited: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...
  7. DSC ABS Module Failure - Best way to proceed

    General E46 Forum
    Hi all, After almost 220,000 miles and 10+ years of ownership my DSC module seems to have given up the ghost. This has been an intermittent issue for quite some time and now the DSC/ABS fails with both the DSC light and the yellow brake lights on permanently. The shop I am using claims the...
  8. Dsc

    General E46 Forum
    I just got my E46 (2000 323Ci) and not sure if the DSC is working, I press the button for 3-5sec and can tell no difference in power, or handling... I'd like to disconnect it all together, so I can get all the performance it has, because it runs well now, but feels kinda sluggish... that leads...

    Hi, I am looking for some help with troubleshooting. This is my first post on this forum. Be gentle. I just "completed" a 330i intake manifold swap on my 99 e46 328i (manual). My car has a AA supercharger kit (stage 1), headers, borla catback exhaust. As part of the swap I redid the CCV...
  10. Did I fix the DSC issue on my E46?

    General E46 Forum
    I used to have the yellow DSC and brake light come on along with a beep intermittently the past 1500 miles. They usually lit up about five minutes into the drive, and then turned off by the next day. I ran codes and got a DSC pressure Sensor #2 error. One day while the car was off and with the...

  13. ABS, DSC, BRAKE lights - cheapest scanner?

    General E46 Forum
    I had my car garaged for some time while I was painting it. When I finished the job and drove the car after, the ABS, DSC, and (yellow) BRAKE lights all came on. These lights will come back on immediately if I disconnect the battery and start the car - they do not need the car to be moving to...

    Just picked this baby up for $2900. Besides a window that needs a new motor

    Just a few shots of my new (to me) 2000 323i. It is fairly clean inside and out. There are only 2 issues that are still bugging me....Those are the DSC light coming on sometimes, and the yellow(amber) oil light will come on for about 20 seconds every time I start it. I am trying to get to the bottom

  19. Drive your e46 WITHOUT adding miles to the odometer!!!

    General E46 Forum
    This will be a short one because the title says it all. I took out my center console the other day to paint it black with dupli-color ez peel (plastidip). This meant I also removed my dsc toggle switch. Doing so will temporarily disable the following: speedometer mpg gauge traction control abs...

    General E46 Forum
    Occationally 2 lamps are lit on the dash, see attached picture. It happens when drivning. OBD2-reader doesn't give any error code. DSC isn't disabled by me. A re-start of the engine and the lamps aren't lit. What is triggering this to happen, what needs to be replaced? Thought my broken rear...
