Hi,

2011 X5 E70 N55 engine. I had Dynamic stability malfunction yellow light and replaced the YAW speed sensor under driver passenger underwell with a second hand part.

I still have the yellow light. Does anyone know if the second hand YAW speed sensor must be coded with VIN to function/re-calibrate itself?

Dealer said VIN must be programmed and they ONLY program new part ($585 part), but I also saw people said at least 2007 and earlier X5 models work immediately without reprogramming replaced YAW sensors.

Does anyone know?

Thanks,
-Nick

Did you start the vehicle, then turn the steering wheel from lock to lock (all the way counter clockwise...then all the way clockwise)?

Yes, I suspected if the steering angle sensor needed to be re-calibrated and made end-to-end turns. But it didn't make any difference.

For few months, the only code I had was "6DC3: DSC: DSC sensor : adjustment required" until very last few days a new "P0127 intake air temperature too high" appeared.

Thanks,

WinKFP will let you change the VIN.
Did you have this code before you replaced the sensor?

0x6dc3 6DC3 - yaw rate sensor: new DRS sensor detected. Stored serial number does not match to the received paßt nicht zu serial number ongitudinal acceleration sensor calibration required

If you run the ISTA test plan, it may take you to the calibration procedure.

Hi, can you clarify where the part was located? Did you mean under the passenger seat?
