    Hi gents,

    Got back to my car after 2 weeks away and the battery was totally flat, only thing i can think of is i left a usb charger in the 12v slot. Connected jump leads and car fired up fine, drove 2 minutes down the road and the dash lit up with DSC, flat tyre, Abs and handbrake warning lights. Drove for 30 miles and they were still on, cleared the codes today and they popped back up after 2 minutes.

    ive looked on the forum and cant see anything similar resolved

    on INPA there are 11 error codes

    58 sensorversorgung 1 master
    59 sensorversorgung 2 master
    118 drosselklappenpotti 1
    119 drosselklappenpotti 2
    60 pedalwertgeber 1
    61 pedalwertgeber 2
    132 timeout dsc-botschaft
    133 timeout lws-botschaft
    134 timeout kombi-botschaft
    139 tempomatsystem
    81 mfl-schnittselle

    Has any on else had the same problem and resolved it?

    Im just about to disconnect the battery for the night as someone else has suggested on a previous post but apart from that im a bit lost.

    Leaving them flat for a while can play havoc. If it were me I'd ensure the battery is charged, drive it and see if the lights go away. If you can clear the codes, then happy days.

    I've had the exact same issues, car stood for 6 months, car fired up on first attempt after first drive out I had all those lights pop up. I started googling everything thinking the worst simply connected a trickle charger made sure the battery was actually fully charged and not seen the lights ever since.

    Id start with the battery first my specialist said the m3 is sensitive to the battery and if not fully charged will throw errors like this

    How did you diagnose it was the rear right ABS sensor in the end?

    I have a CTEK in the workshop so think I'll get that hooked up today, will clear the codes and whip the battery out for a full charge, thanks for the advice.

    Have you got a diagnostic tool. Even Carly will tell you which speed sensor it thinks causing the fault. Best bet to do is charge the battery and clear the fault and if they come up then I'd start with looking at the wheel speed sensors.

    I’ve recently had the same problem. My speedo stopped working as well. Check the fuses for the DSC. One of my fuses had blown. In the end my problem was the DSC unit became faulty and was blowing the fuse and causing the problem

    I had all of these, plus speedo not working, after charging battery, it turned out to be ABS rings on the drive shafts rusting and swelling up. BMW wanted stupid money for complete drive shafts.........

    I have inpa, didn't see any faults mention wheel sensors on there.

    I haven't noticed my speedo not working yet, I will check the fuses when back at the work shop tomorrow. I have left the battery on charge on the CTEK for the night now, by the time I left work it was only on 4 out of 7 lights so the battery may be done for, seems like it's not taking charge well.

    Thanks for the info, if none of the above resolve the issue I will get the car jacked up and have a look.

    Thanks for the info and definitely given me a fault path to follow! :thumbsup:

    *****Update*****
    Battery fully charged and no DSC or ABS fuses blown, codes cleared, short drive and the lights flashed up again.

    Going to do more scanning and see if i can find any wheel sensor faults with INPA.
