E39 DSC light, Auto Enginuity code: "68 Steering Angle Sensor, Internal"
2003 E39 525iT Sport Wagon AT with 190K miles
1) Persistent DSC light, despite "clearing" the code with Auto Enginuity.
Auto Enginuity Code:
68 Steering Angle Sensor, Internal
2) Drive wheels spin easily under acceleration in grassy field.
3) Dynamic Stability Control function isn't there when turning the wheel hard either direction at 15-25 mph in grassy field.
4) ABS works fine.
5) Cruise control works fine.
Might I have both a failed steering angle sensor and/or a failed DSC module?
If the main computer senses the steering angle sensor isn't working right then does this rear-drive wagon's traction control function also shut down? If so, then am I right to just buy a new steering angle sensor, install it, and code it?
