Found the sensor at FCPEuro for $190 Bosch OEM. Cheapest from the dealer is $543 at thebmwminipartstore.com.

https://www.fcpeuro.com/products?utf...ds=34526777435+

https://thebmwminipartstore.com/part...&siteid=218365

And here're the instructions for replacing it on my 2005 4.4. https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e...onents/ERnob4W

I'll go for the Bosch from FCPEuro since they have life-time replacement. From the product description it sounds like this is an important safety component, hence I'd rather replace it than code it out:

Product Details
This sensor works in conjunction with the steering system to detect when the vehicle is going sideways and allows the traction control system to engage.

Ok, found another post referring to the same fix as suggested here. Replacing the sensor is not a proven fix. I'd hate to replace it in vain. This issue may just be a glitch in the E53. A faulty yaw sensor results the abs triangle light showing on the dash, at least per my online searches. You get a clear indication there's an issue if that sensor is faulty.

- you could replace part #34526777435 (this is for my car, it will be different number for some models) which is kinda expensive (even used one). It is a Longitudinal and Lateral Acceleration Sensor.
- or you could do what i did. Load KOBMI module into your NCS Expert and edit CAN_EBV value from AKTIV to NICHT_AKTIV. From that point your car will think this unit is not installed and no error will be displayed ever again.
And how to do that? There is a lot of info on Youtube so I am not getting into details on that. Just Google "Where to get NCS Expert", "how to use NCS Expert" and youll get there eventually. Also you will need an ODB2 cable from eBay or Amazon.

And what is this sensor actually for? Well, in extreme situation if your car starts sliding sideways and you apply brakes this sensor will provide data for "brake force distribution" in order to try to help you to regain control of the vehicle. So since your unit is not going to do its job anyways because it is giving you error, you can just tell the car to not look at it at all. Or, now when you know what it does and how to fix it, you can change this sensor. In my car it is located below central console and radio, on the floor of the car.
Thank you for this comprehensive reply. i will investigate this myself and report back...

Good stuff. I just started noticing this fault code as well. I'm just going to ignore. No CEL's, no performance issues, no problem.

Any progress on this issue? I have had it on my x5 since I bought it 3 years ago. It’s the last error that shows up on my scanner and it really niggles me that I can’t get rid of it.

I'm yet to replace the Yaw Sensor (also called Rotational Speed Sensor) for Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), but EBV can be coded out as discussed in prior posts. The EBV error may be a false positive if the brake warning light is not illuminated in the instrument cluster:

For anyone else investigating this, it looks like indeed this may be a false positive error since replacing the yaw sensor does not seem to get rid of the error. Refer to post https://xoutpost.com/bmw-sav-forums/...-sensor-6.html
