Dsc hydraulic unit failure

The same warning lights has come on my girlfriends 05 1series, bmw quoted £1709 to replace the dsc hydraulic unit. It's only done 30,000 miles. As this is obviously a common fault I think I'll ring bmw u.k and see what they can do.

I have the same fault , that has just occured out of the blue only 38,000 on clock.
Drives perfectly and brakes fine too.
Warning light indicates Suspension Stability control
but diagnosed as yours at the same cost.
Apparently quite a common fault with series 1 , but BMW do not tell you that !!

My BMW 120d now has dsc and dtc deactivated warning light on flashing amber , what shall I do


When the light is flashing, it means the traction control system has been deactivated. Exercise extreme caution while driving on slippery surfaces. BMW has a notorious fail rate with their DSC modules and may need replacement. Visit your local workshop to find out for sure.

Have replaced ABS module on bmw 525 E39 and ABS now ok, but the ASC lamp will not go off on the dash and fault code 23 (incorrect coding) will not clear from system? Everyone told us the ABS ecu does not...


ABS/ASC module is faulty
CLASSIC ABS FAILURE SYMPTOMS:
- Most of the time, the problem is the ABS module or one of the 4 wheel speed sensors (& sometimes the brake pressure sensor)
- In my 2002 BMW E39 DSC, three orange (warning) cluster display lights lit, ABS, Brake, & DSC
- The 3 warning lights reset when the ignition is turned off, only to repeatedly reappear within minutes of normal driving
- The fault is often intermittent leading you to falsely believe you've resolved the problem (proper diagnosis is important)
- Sometimes the fault only appears when the engine is hot; other times only at speeds over 40 mph
- Carsoft may erroneously show a rear speed sensor failure; but just replacing the speed sensor may make no difference.
- All the work is in correct diagnosis of the problem; parts replacement is trivial (from 1 to six bolts in a few minutes)
- Hence, this BMW E39 ABS 3-warning light DIY will concentrate on understanding and diagnosis of the problem

DSC and DTC failed on 36000 miles under 4 year BMW 120D


I think you should check ABS sensor ring on the rear wheels. This is known to come loose and cause this problem. Hopefully it's just that you not the entire hydraulic unit

The ABS warning light on my BMW 316ti is flashing.


The flash may be a faulty brake light switch located on the rear of the brake pedal

DTC/DSC warning light appeared on my 120d


My advice - take the vehicle to your local dealer - tell them you just want it diagniosed - agree a time of say 20 minuits. That way you will know for sure and can then carry out any diy repairs yourself BUT should it require a complete hydraulic unit which is likely as they are hmm what's the word ... ****!- contact BMW customer service for financial contribution.
