Mein Auto: 05 X5 4.8is
Classic DSC/ABS/Brake lights on problem / 2 DSC pumps already changed

Hi Guys,

I have a problem on my 2005 X5 4.8is

Two months ago, I happened to have the DSC/Brake/ABS lights on on my dash, and went to the workshop. The problem was due to the DSC pump failing, which is not so common (was suspecting a sensor at first). First time, I replaced the pump by a used one, it worked fine for 1 month, and the lights appeared again.

I changed the pump for a new one, and the lights came off for two weeks, but they appeared again yesterday.

I suspect the pump is faulty again. I am investigating on what should these pumps to fail. A new pump should not fail after 2 weeks...

I noticed that one small black wire next the to the positive cable for the battery has been cut and wrapped in duck tape (previous owner way to solve problems? IBS cable?) Maybe this is causing a problem with the pump with stray current....

Will keep you posted on that.

If any of you encountered the same thing and found a solution, just let me know.
