Thumbs Up DSC Disabled by Pulling Fuse 61

We pulled Fuse 61 before my track day yesterday at PIR to disable DSC. This worked perfect and the ABS still worked. The DSC light always stays on after the fuse is pulled and the DSC never chops the throttle.

My E46 M3 is a 2002. I'm pretty sure this will probably work for all E46 M3's. Can someone else test this and verify?

Chris.

push and hold your dsc button. ...until a yellow brake light comes on.
We e46nonMs from 01-06 have a two-stage dsc
you're leaving traction control on if the light isn't off

I believe the M3 is suppose to be like this too. but it would still randomly come on.

My car is a 2004 smg and I have never had DSC cut the throttle after turning it off (unless the ignition is shut off and turned back on), fwiw.

Pressing the DSC button once will only turn 50% of the system off.

Pressing and holding the DSC button until the light on the dash illuminates will turn the complete system off.

I wouldn't pull fuses out personally.

^^M3 and NON-M traction control systems are quite different. Pressing or holding makes no difference on any e46 ///M systems that I've played with(all 04+ cars however).


On my old ZHP...
if one pressed the button on NON-M = active braking stays ON while traction control turns OFF
if one HOLDS the button on NON-M long enough = active braking OFF and traction both turn OFF

on my ///M...
all systems are disabled as soon as the button is pressed

Same here... I have a 6 speed manual on 2004 M3 and DSC button pushed did'nt cut fuel/throttle at all (pre boosted and post boosted) and ABS still worked without traction control... maybe facelift/newer M3s E46 had this feature

Right now, BOTH MY ABS AND DSC are Permanently and Forever disabled by my own personal preference, so I can't really try this fuse theory. hope it works for others though

ABS wasn't doing anything except interrupting my braking. I guess it just never had a chance to work properly under full braking because my car is too light, has sticky tires, and has aftermarket rotors, pads, lines etc...

Oh and because it is strictly a dedicated track/weekend beater... maybe that's a simpler answer
