If this is the first time you read the codes, you should clear them and check them again in a day or two. Those codes could be weeks, months or years old, although there would probably be more if they had not been cleared at some point in the recent past.

Sorry for the 2nd post. I am doing this on my iphone. I just ran two test and here is what I am getting. From what I am reading, it than lit my mod. Should I just replace the pressure sensor and wheel sensor and see what happens ?

Pressure sensor is probably the worst misleading code of all time
It's Never the pressure sensor simply the abs/dsc module electrical components can no longer withstand the heat thus needing replacement or rebuild
My friends 01' came up with same code , swore it was the issue, replaced the PSensor and same issues popped up
Finally he listen to me and replaced the dsc module and his error codes vanished

Ya, that's what I have been reading. I have 2000 740i, if I send out the mod, can you still drive the car?
