DSC Light On and Wheels Binding Turning at Very Slow Speed

2006 X3. DSC button does not turn off DSC Light. At very slow (parking lot) speed when turning sharp, alternating wheels seem to brake (foot off pedal) and then spin slightly forward. Seen many other threads re the DSC light. None seem to have the wheel issue. Don't have scanner. Seems only expensive ones will read DSC codes. Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

Horrible reviews. The C310 had a couple good reviews and someone else saying they were fake. Go figure.

Further research, I found a post that said "The xDrive goes into RWD only during tight turns to allow the wheels to rotate at different speeds without binding. My bet would be that you have an issue with either the steering angle sensor or you have a worn gear in the actuator that's keeping it from backing the clutch packs off." I am almost certain this is what's happening. How can I determine if it's Steering angle sensor or the worn actuator gear?
