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.

Mein Auto: 730d
Drive control system faulty- drive moderately

very now and then my 2006 730d is showing this error. If I restart the car the warning goes away but cones back on at will. It may come back after few minutes or next day while driving.

I have noticed if I drive and hit some rough patch of road it is more likely to come back.

Then after restart the warning message vanishes.

Anyone ? Any ideas please ..?

Most common fault for this is the 'steering angle sensor'.

I would also suggest you to check your
battery & it's age. Bad battery tends to cause this error , along with others
