Yellow DSC/Tire sensor lights on

My DSC and Tire Sensor lights are on. I searched and found some previous threads that discussed this. Apparently there is a DSC sensor that may be the culprit here.

Does anyone have advice that is specific to a 2002 E46 M3 for this?

After my initial post, above, I was able to re-set the lights and had no problems for a couple months.

While driving through some moderate curves recently the lights came back on.

what happens is, the DSC light flashes, you feel the brakes pulsating like it is trying to assit with stability and then the tire indicator light comes on.

The road I was on was just slighly bumpy and I wasn't really pushing the car. It seams that a sonsor may be failing or just too sensative.

Any thoughts on identifying the problem and fixing?
