    Hi all, After almost 220,000 miles and 10+ years of ownership my DSC module seems to have given up the ghost. This has been an intermittent issue for quite some time and now the DSC/ABS fails with both the DSC light and the yellow brake lights on permanently. The shop I am using claims the...

    I'm getting ready to replace the OEM pads on my 2005 e86. Yes they are OEM as it only has 55K miles on the clock. I have green EBC sport pads that are going in and I may/may not turn the rotors depending upon the looks of them or if there is much of a lip. I also ordered both sensors as what...

    I have 2003 BMW 525i and recently "Check Brake Lamp" and "Check Backup Light" warning messages came on at the same time and it seemed like either the corroded wire harness or bulb socket on the right tail light assembly was causing the problem, because all bulbs look fine and sometimes those...

    During the winter, the ABS and brake indicator on the dash board came come on. However the ABS and brakes were working just fine. I tried several solutions posted in the forums to no avail.

    I just had both of my rear wheel bearings replaced at a local shop, not a BMW dealer. Now the ABS, BRAKE, and one more warning light are on. I can't use cruise control. I believe that a sensor was damaged or not hooked back up properly? Does anyone have any ideas for an easy fix for this? Is...
