I have helped people on this forum damn near more than anyone else on here and most people will vouch for that so you might want to do your research before you type.
Oh OK.

Mobile phone/ DSC light

The DSC light came on the moment I made a call on my mobile as I was driving along. Can the phone transmission interfere with the DSC electronics? The car has had 2 new OEM rear sensors less than 6 months ago.

Your joking right? Btw your phone might give you cancer, cause your car to blow up while gassing up, and make a plane crash if you use it....

If you take one of the wheel speed sensor wires and plug it into the phone, maybe. The ABS/DSC will compare the speed of 3 wheels to how quickly you're talking or texting on the phone and then decide if it should kick it to redirect your conversation.

Hi Guys,

I seem to have this issue at the moment with the 3 lights on the dash and some ABS issues.

Currently I also have a knock/clonk which happens (drivers side front wheel) when I brake. I think that is a bush thats gone.

Anyway, I also seem to sometimes have my ABS come on (hear the grinding) when Im braking at quite a low speed.

Im wondering whether the bush being gone might be affecting the ABS? Or whether from experience people would just say, its also your ABS sensors?

Any previous experience with the same symptoms whould be great.

thanks
Darren

I solved problem with ASC/ABS. It was ABS sensor. In your place i would try switch the sensor.

How could water possibly get into the sensor and "ruin it"? Its a sealed plastic piece, and all there is inside is a coil. Also, the sensors are a pain to get out and usually break in the process. Modules are the most common things that go bad, especially in older E46s.

I was going to post the same thread. It also points out that cleaning the sensor won't do a damn thing, but people continue to post that crap on here.

I had the same problem on my e46 ( DSC+ brake light "ON") , it was because the brake fluid was low, just add more brake fluid and the lights shut off in my cluster ... yeahhh

abs dsc brale lights on

I had mine up on all fours with jack stands changing he starter and fuel filter. Once I test started it the lights were on and I did rotate the tires at some point when I was under it and it was up in the air (330xi). Once it was back on the ground and I backed out of the driveway, all the lights went off and everything was back in order. My guess is that the wheel speed sensors were misaligned and need to sync with all four wheels at the same time. (no codes came up on my code reader when I ran that test).

Hope this helps someone!

I had the same kind of issue a 3 years ago. Paid $62.50 to have the local BMW dealership diagnose which sensor it was (in my case, right side, rear).

They quoted $300 to replace. I did nothing, expecting to replace it myself, however the problem never resurfaced after the diagnosis, presumably because they cleaned it up a little.

No problems since, for three years.

I found out today that the left rear speed sensor is the one that drives the speedometer so if your getting intermittent speedo readings your sensor is bad. It also serves as the master speed sensor for the ABS/DSC system which the other three wheel sensors compare their signal outputs to.

Hi all I had this issue after doing some work, forgot to connect that plug on the top of the brake fluid reservoir. Lights off after that.
