7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

dsc and dbc message

Hopefully someone has had a similar problem and can help. Was driving my 2007 750li today (rainy) and after approximately 10 miles a message came that there was a dsc and dbc failure and that I should drive moderately and contact my BMW dealer ASAP. I drove for another 10 miles or so and stopped for gas and as I shut the car off a message quickly came on that I had an emergency brake problem. I fueled the car up and all messages disappeared and I drove the car home, another 25 miles, with no messages reappearing. Any advice would be appreciated.

Seems like ur battery is going dead. Or alternator not giving enough charge. U can check ur battery voltage through the hidden menu in ur cluster with the car on. Should be around 14.

Yeah be very careful with that dsc module connector,
I washed my engine very little water got in there! So they claim this connector is water proof it's not!! That rubber pad won't seal it like it should.
So if you spilled some coolant while topping it off or your tank was leaking, you might kill 600$ module.
