    NOT a trifecta Just DSC and Low tire pressure

    Replaced front wheel bearings...all in life was good, three days and 120 miles later, DSC and flat tire light came on....replaced BOTH front speed sensors...lights won't clear...searching forums I can only find references to the trifecta lights (ABS,DSC, flat)

    Any ideas? :mad2:

    What codes is it throughing? This is probably not it but how old is the battery? If it's getting old may want to have it tested.

    Did you use Mini OEM wheel bearings?
    Some folks have reported problems with the sensors picking up reliably with non-OEM bearing assemblies, something about the way the pickup for the hall sensor is positioned.

    NSK Bearings were used

    I was trusting the OE bearing MFG for Honda (NSK) would be a decent replacement at half the cost...the other forum mention the steering angle sensor...could just be coincidence?

    No codes, cannot find anyone local with a reader for abs/chassis

    Any independent BMW shop should be able to scan it
