2008 BMW 750i Base 8 Cyl 4.8L


Light on in dash "Brake/drive fault" Parking brake. Avoid hard braking.

I have a light on that says "Brake/drive fault"
Braking and dynamic response system inoperable. I took it to a local mechanic and they checked all the fuses and found them to be good. They tried to scan the car but apparently the scanner and the car are not communicating with each other??? Any suggestions?

BMW say the DSC needs replacing costing about 2k plus labor or it can be a new abs control unit which isn't cheap, so i would be hoping it is a wheel sensor . Also, what scanner did ur local mechanic use? BMWs have their own. A BME doesnt work the same way with a Honda. Sorry to break it you this way but when you bought a BMW the word inexpensive does not apply.
