I just disconnected the battery for 1 hr. and no change.

Was thinking that maybe it would clear the light and SLS message only for it to return after a short time later. Nope, both conditions are still there immediately after connecting the battery.

Now trying to figure out a part number of the sensor without disassembling the console. I think I'll just have to do it so I'll search for a good thread on how best to remove the console.

Link that thread here. There have been multiple times I have tried to do find something as well.

the dsc sensor has died. I will look up exact location for you when i am at work and see if i can print out and scan the repair info on console removal. the self leveling fault is related to the dsc system since they share the info from the dsc/abs unit. The can bus is not sending any info to other control units. once can bus has started to talk to everyone again the leveling system will work again

Thanks a lot. That would be very helpful.

Once JCM3 said he had the same exact error and it was the yaw sensor, I was pretty convinced.

There are supposed to be two Yaw sensors but I'm assuming its the one under the console like his.

Thanks again for your input.

Dennis, I found this in the Articles section.

http://www.xoutpost.com/articles/x5/...le-bmw-x5.html

Also, I read Tom bragging about how he could remove the center console in 10 minutes. I'll post any tips I gather from him.

Normally with the dsc/abd module you get the abs light on as well. In INPA you can look at all the sensors in real time and look at the wheel speed sensors and yaw. All my speed sensors were working but the yaw was reading 0 output. To take out the console really does take me less than 10 minutes.
1) Unscrew one screw (near gas pedal(drivers)/12V outlet(pass) on each side of the front of the console (carpeted trim pieces)
2) pull the carpeted trim pieces out..they are just clipped in)
3) couple crews behind the carpeted trim pieces hold the console down
4) pull out the shifter leather cover and gate trim (they snap in) (the actual shifter knob can stay in place) (disconnect two harnesses)
5) raise the e-brake to highest position
6) Take out emergency flasher/door lock button (pops out) (screw in located under this)
7) Take out plastic bin under arm rest (pull right out) two screws under it needs to come out
8) One screw on each side under the carpet trim near rear cupholders on each side (cupholders/armrest can all stay in place)
9) now pull up and towards the rear of the truck on each side of the console by the under the arm rest..you should be able to pull the rear up about 8-9 inches the front will stay semi connected) yaw sensor is located at the bottom under the cupholders secured by two 10mm bolts.

Thank you jcm3!

I don't have INPA and I haven't used the GT1 to test my sensors.

However, I'm confident along with everyones input its that yaw sensor.

I'll pull the console and have a look at the part number when I have a chance. Hopefully I can source it fairly easily.

I'll ask Craig from Bloomfield and see what he can do for me.

I am going to setup INPA soon on a spare laptop. I will send it out as soon as I have it done. But you might be done by then.

You're a good man Dennis! Please don't trouble yourself. I think with a little effort I'll be able to get the part number and order it.

I have no ABS light and two people confirmed that it probably is that yaw sensor. Good enough for me.

Thanks for the offer though and hope to see you at Mpact!

I went to go out and remove the center console. I pickup my toolbox but find that I did not lock the trays in.

Frustration at myself!
