Speedometer prabably stopped working also. ABS module shorted out. Will need to be rebuilt. Go to modulemaster.com. Put in your car info. The site will advise how to diagnose kind of. It will tell you how to remove unit and ship and how to protect the connector and valve body so you can still drive your car. This happened to my 2000 528i so i'm confident this is your problem. When you get the unit back just hook it up and away you go. Lights will go off on thier own right away. Dealer wants over 1000 bucks and will only sell you a new unit. This should be around $350 all said and done.

    just on a note you have wheel sensors that can be checked real easy with a scanner. Being intermittant it could be a sensor instead. Just did'nt want to send you down the wrong road without knowing your options, Best get the code and description before tearing apart.

I agree with the Solution #2, had similar issue with my 325xi changed the battery which worked for sometime 7 days, but since the alternator was not charging the battery my system started going down and it started showing ABS, BRAKE and the DSC light.

Please replace your battery or the alternator, which so ever is not working properly.

Your alternator is probably dyeing . That is what just happened to my 2004 325XI . The brake light came on and off . Then it came on with the ABS and DSC light. Then the headlights died. Luckily I was near a friends house. When I tried to restart the car, it would not restart

Brake,abs and dsc lights game on


theres a problem with the abs, when the abs has a problem the brake and abs light come on, also dsc light does too, because it uses the abs to control the system so when abs doesnt work it shuts down the dsc and turns the light on, you will need to have the abs system scanned for codes these codes will give an idea of whats not working and it can be diagnosed why.

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

BMW x5 DSC indicator lamp stay on and no power.


When the DSC Dynamic Stability Control light is ON your traction control is OFF. It will sometimes trigger the ABS light and the Rev Limiter it is an engine protection FAIL SAFE mode.
Check your brake switch on the brake pedal, this sounds like the problem wen replaced it will reset the Rev limiter, if the ABS light comes Check the wheel sensors

My DSC and Brake warning lamps continuously light up in yellow once the engine has warmed up. They remain on after driving for a while and sometimes they shut off. Any ideas?


Check to see if your brake pads and rotors are in good condition. Or if you have replaced the pads yourself and have not reset the wheel sensors this would cause the ABS Antilock Brake System light and the ASC Automatic Stability Control light to stay on as the ASC uses the ABS brakes with computer assistance to control the car

Dcs and abs light staying on


car is sensing a problem with the stability control system (DSC) or the antilock brake system (ABS). usually an ABS problem will turn off the DSC, so DSC may be ok, just ABS needs a look at.

since its an '08 model, it should still be covered by the BMW warranty provided you live in the USA. take it in and have them fix it. not safe driving with both systems deactivated.
