Who you gonna call?...........


Codebusters.......

Seriously though, you need to take off JB3 and take it to the dealer. If there are traces of tampering left, you could be out of warranty.

Just go to BMW with the JB3 installed. Just let BMW only read out, by ODB, the failure. Then go to JB3. Can't read they the failure out? Or is JB3 something you buy from e-Bay?

As soon as BMW sees that you have an engine mod - bye bye warranty.

OMG!

A DSC error is normally related to a wheel speed sensor. Your best bet is to remove any modifications and let the dealer sort it out for you.

Had the same issue.
Take JB out and go to the dealer.
My baby had a rear wheel sensor go bad and all the electronic DTC, DSC, TC was off.

so much fun, car feels so much snappier and faster for some reason with the thing off.

I have had 3 DSC malfunctions on my E60 M5 so had Adam on his E60 M5. I have also gotten it once on my 335i. Just take it into the dealer with your JB3 off....

Are you getting just limp mode or are you getting a CEL as well. If your getting a CEL send us over the code we will see if we can help you.....

i brought 'er in last week, and the problem turned out to be a steering wheel sensor, that links with DSC.

they ordered the wrong parts so hopefully it will be done tomorrow.

I have a theory that hopefully when they change the part and reflash the DSC module it may fix the tinny rattle all HiFi owners experience.
