Had the same problem for 2 months.
I cleaned the both sensors on the rear and cleared and reset everything on the xbox 1.4 scanner and it worked fingers crossed.

Aside from the wheel speed sensors, check ur vacuum pressure fitting and/or hose going to the brake booster. A vacuum leak there will shut the DSC off as well. I found that out after cleaning then replacing all of my wss on my previous 330ci.

Scan the car to see which is throwing error and clean it with a wire brush. Might as well clean all of them while your at it. If cleaning doesn't work just replace the sensor. Takes 5 min .
thanks for the info, im not a mechanic, but i do have a bit of smarts,
is there a guide online to cleaning those that you know of?
