DSC Malfunction With Codes need help diagnosing

Hi Everyone,

So the other day my car started popping up with a DSC malfunction on the iDrive. So I plugged in my laptop and pulled the codes (a crapload of them were stored), and I posted the PDF of those codes as before_clearing.pdf.

Then, I cleared the codes and one code seemed to stick and not go away:
5EE4

(under the DSC unit). This is posted as after_clearing.pdf.

Does anyone know what the issue might be? Thanks everyone in advance for your help, I really appreciate it.

If the Functional Job for reading error memory out of all modules is not giving a written description of what the 5EE4 fault means, then go to your DSC module and read the fault there.
Posting the result would likely lead to others giving their thoughts...

I talked to a few independent mechanics, and it looks like the issue is with my ABS pump because of the 5EE4 that keeps coming up. I just sent it into module masters to repair it, will let you all know in 1 week if that fixed the issue.

It kept saying something was wrong with the DSC/ABS in the iDrive.

Here is what 5ee4 shows from my BMW code sheet:
0x03435EE4 5EE4 Hydraulic unit, pressure sensor: internal

Thanks all. Let's see how it goes...

Update for everyone, reinstalled the ABS module after module masters fixed it. Reset the codes. The dsc light stayed on for a few minutes, but after I drove the car around for 5min all of the codes went away. Success! Car is now fixed, thanks everybody. Only $350 instead of $1300 from the dealership

They could not fix mine, so I ended up with a brand new with warranty module 590$. So 250$ difference is not much for dsc module just in case

Yeah they mentioned it was a 15-20% error rate that cannot be fixed. Module masters includes a 5year warranty on their work too. Sucks they couldn't fix yours, but yeah at least it didn't set you back too much.
