DSC problem - no OFF possible

Hello,

After some weeks ago I had the DCT GTS SW update when I noticed that I can't switch of the DSC.

In the M menue I can still configure the MDM mode, and the SW allow some spin from the rear tires, but it is not possible to deactivate it completely.

I have no errors in the CIC menu and no codes coming out from Carly.

It is a 2012 E93 European model.

Any suggestions?

thx

Can you post a photo of the iDrive DSC Menu options available to you? You should be able to select DSC = Off from the iDrive menu..

So you're saying the iDrive option to turn off DSC is no longer present. Does the shifter console button no longer work either?

If the console button is now disabled then I suggest calling whoever sold you the tune, because drifting is not possible with DSC stuck ON.

There are two values in CIC that could be set wrong regarding DSC control. Also like the guy before asked......can you not turn off your DSC by a long press on the off button? The "aktiv" coding for M mode on the CIC is an easy fix.

Long-press (10sec) does not change anything
No "DSC off" in M menu

Now the car is parked for the winter, will deal with it as the first when spring comes.
All suggestions and ideas are welcome!

hey all..

problem solved

A SW update + a change in the car log, coding DSC to aktive with NCS expert.

imagine that my M dealer spent a full day on the car with a M expert support and at the end it was a student from another BMW garage that fixed it after work....

Yep, sounds like a typical BMW dealership alright. Glad to hear it got resolved.
