Dynamic Stability Control Malfunction
On my 645 CI I had a message "Dynamic Stability Control Malfunction" pop up. Anyone else had this occur and what to do?

My seems to do it once to twice a week, if I turn car off and restart it goes away.

I just tried that and mine went off also. Wonder why it keps coming back on. One article I read mentioned a steering sensor. Thanks!!

I read that could be the battery so I'm going to get mine checked out.

It's probably the battery.

Check your power steering fluid level. I had the exact same malfunction and found out that my steering fluid level was low. I topped it off and it solved my issue.

+1 on the power steering fluid level. Mine was low and caused this error.

+2 on the power steering fluid - this solved mine

I have only had mine come on when I disconnected my battery. Check to make sure that all the terminals are on tight. Also +3 check fluid

Make sure you use the correct power steering fluid in case you need to refill it.

Thanks for all the input. I drove the car tonight and the message was gone. I will still check the power steering fluid tomorrow. I think it uses the Pentosin fluid I used on my Porsche. I bought it from the BMW dealer.

New battery last week and just filled fluid this morning. Error came back on. Wwish i could be +4 but back to the drawing board.
