Mein Auto: 2001 740i MSport
DSC, ABS, BRAKE lights around 30 mph

I have a 01 740i MSport and when I begin driving the DSC, ABS, and BRAKE lights all come on at the same time around 30mph. I replaced all brakes and rotors and had codes read but nothing came up for those lights. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Pre=charge pump. I had the same EXACT problem. At 30 MPH. Like there was a switch that put those lights on once the car reached 30. Follow Timm's instructions. They were spot on for me.
I did find a pump in a junk yard. They had 6 E38's ALL were gone but one. Seems to be a common issue.
