Hi guys, thought I'd post a link to this very informative video that explains how to diagnose an e39 transmission fault that highlighted a CAN bus issue, and shows that the problem ultimately lay within the ABS module...

Note, I do not have such an issue but thought this useful and perhaps helpful. Also interesting to see Dan's logical approach which is useful in itself.

I also found his other videos to be very informative even though they do not focus on an e39.
I've now subscribed to his channel!

'Hope it helps someone out there!

Best regards & best wishes for New Year
:)

That was a really really long video to report that the DSC module had a problem. The confusing bit was that he didn't really diagnose it that DSC was bad, he just noted that the CAN bus changed signal levels when he unplugged it -- which is entirely expected! He either got lucky, or already knew that the DSC was the usual problem.
