what causes the dynamic drive inactive on my 2003 745LI bmw

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.


thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.


The dynamic drive warning message is not specific to any one thing, it simply indicates a failure somewhere within the dynamic drive system. It is only intended to inform the driver there is a problem, not to facilitate trouble shooting. This is a very complex system with a number of components that are prone to failure.


There are many things that can cause this error. A failing alternator, a failure of the dynamic drive module, a bad steering angle sensor, a low fluid level in the system or some other sway bar or sensor issue.


When this warning comes on, the car’s computer logs a record of the fault which has triggered it. So, the only way to determine what has failed is to have the fault memory read from the vehicle using a proper BMW scan tool. Once the faults are read, they will point you to the failure which can be rectified, and proper functionality restored (and the warning turned off).


if you need a properly equipped shop to save $ vs. the dealer check out or for options.


sorry if you were hoping for a different answer but I trust that my honest reply is appreciated.


Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
