My Ride: 2001 325CI Coupe
Angry Abs front left sensor - reloem issue

Hi guys,

I'm looking for some help, i have a 2001 E46 325CI COUPE My ABS & DSC light are both on have have been informed that it is a front left abs sensor/ pulse generator.

So i check realoem and purchased a Pulse generator, ABS front left 09/2000 03/2003 34526792897 for cars with DSC

I tried to fit it today and and its COMPLEATY different

My original one has a grey sleeve and has 3 pins

The new one has a blue sleeve and only 2 pins

The only other part/sensor i can order is a

Pulse generator, ABS 09/2001- 34521164651 which i believe has 3 pins and a grey sleeve but is for cars WITHOUT DSC

DOES MY CAR NOT HAVE DSC? PLEASE HELP

It should either say "ASC or DSC" on a button on your dash by where your heated seats and other good jazz is. I am not sure about the other stuff though but my 07/01 325Ci had DSC. Hope that helps

If your car has DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) there is a button to disable it next to the cigarette lighter. Actualluy, just forward of the lighter. My friend had a 323ic and she kept hitting the button when she wanted to use the lighter. Finger nails, or something...
