My Ride: 2002 325CI
I just got done replacing the DSC MK60 in my 2002 325CI with a used unit I bought on ebay. After the original unit failed dealership wanted around $2000 to replace, I went with option #2 and spent $125 instead.

After installing the MK60 from another vehicle you'll need to recode the unit with your VIN and vehicle order ( ZCS/FA ) using NCS Expert. This should resolve the "coding error" and CAN bus errors.

The error you mention I had also and it took me hours to figure out how to resolve. There is a job in INPA 4.4.7 under something like E46 - Chassis - DSC MK60 - Adjustment called something like "Initialize Steering Angle Sensor". I had to hold down shift and press one of the F-keys to launch it. After running the job, the DSC light and brake light immediately turned off and I'm no longer seeing the 5E1F error. I wasn't able to find this job in INPA 5.0.1, it seems there are less options for the E46 in the newer version.

Good luck and hope this helps others with the dreaded MK60 failure
