Mein Auto: 2001 330ci
Question DSC warning light

My 2001 330ci convertible has the DSC light on the dash on all the time now- was intermittent for awhile, now always on. Not because of the dash button either. What could it mean?
thx,

ABS Module, wheel sensor, various other issues. Find an indy shop that can read the code stored in that system. It can tell you immediately.

The link has some possible causes, but I would go with smolck's advice of having an indy shop read the code.

Awhile back another 'fester reported getting the DSC light cause the charge pressure sensors went bad. That possible cause has not been added to the Wiki.
