I have the "DSC, Brake, ABS, and Lower Tire Pressure Lights"
My mechanic cant seem o figure it out.
I at one point he was suggesting replacing right and left rear axles.
Should I just try replacing the DSC sensors?

Thanks just ordered 4 I'll start there :)
Not a good idea - you can get the trifecta for any number of reasons. You really should scan for the specific codes before ordering parts. It may very well be a WSS but I'd be pissed if I bought 4 new, installed them and found out it was something else.

The codes will tell you exactly what has failed. BMW Scanner will tell you exactly what's up for $20. Worth the investment.

Don`t be stupid, just throwing random parts at the car and hoping the problem will go away. Read up and do some research first, there`s plenty of info archived here on just about every problem you can think of. With wheel speed sensors, sometimes they`re just dirty or corroded, and a little cleaning will provide a quick, easy, and FREE fix ! :thumbup:
