I posted this question up in the e46 section but not a single soul has replied. Thought maybe I can ask in this section as well for any help.

My brother is having problems with his 01 330i, his dsc light will come on when ever he hits a very fine bump on the road or fwy. Once the dsc light kicks on, the acceleration decreases automatically and he wont be able accelerate until the light goes off (stays lite for about 30-60 seconds). The dealer checked it for any fault codes but nothing came through. Anyone ever had this problem?? Or suggestions on how to find/solve this headache???

You can temporarily disable DSC by holding the button in for a few seconds. Supposedly it will activate another light on your dash to warn you it is inactive, but at least you'll have your acceleration back.

Yeha i believe if you hodl the DSC button down for 5-10 seconds it FULLY deactivates DSC. Try this. Maybe it will reset it or something and hopefully as simple as that for fxing it.

As billb said, I would suspect a loose ABS sensor or bad wiring.
Are you sure its DSC and not the simpler ASC?

If it was the ASC instead, the second "throttle body" could have an issue.
