The problem is most likely a failed dsc control computer which is also called an abs/dsc module. It is also possible it could be the egs but the dsc computer is more likely
I would suggest having the vehicle reprogrammed to ensure it is not a software problem

I cannot read Spanish. I would consider checking the voltage to be sure there is no issue there but otherwise is it likely a failed module

hi steve

BMW Mechanic: Steve, BMW Expert replied 10 months ago

I still believe the issue is with voltage, or the dsc module, or the transmission module.
