Hi all,

I have a 2002 E53 4.4 V8.

I had the good old trifecta ABS module issue a few months back.
Had it refurbed (eventually) by BAA Reman, and reinstalled.

All lights went off! Wooo!


Ever since it was done if I take a corner a bit too quickly and/or traction kicks in, the lights will come back on and sometimes I get the message "DSC deactivated"

After a restart of the car they go away and all is good again.

Reading the code with a 1.4 thingy I get "Yaw rate sensor, open circuit"

Is it likely a faulty yaw rate (rotation rate) sensor or just that the module was not repaired correctly as there are other possible errors e.g. "Yaw rate sensor fault"?

I can get a second hand sensor for a few quid and I know it's under the center console but before I start ripping the interior up, would I be wasting my time?

As highly integrated as DSC is with driving dynamics, I would do what ever is required to cure the error.

Imagine just what is the yaw rate sensor, that's some sophisticated electronics.
