Help please!

So these lights came on and my traction control isn't workin. I have n 07 335i mods are jb4 n catless dps. Any info would be great. I really don't wanna take it to the dealer unless it's the last resort. Thx in advance guys


Oh and the light that's in red and says brake is on cuz of the parking brake but wen I put the brake down it stays yellow.

Alot of those errors on tr dash can be from a battery that's going dead. Check your battery.

Could be one of your wheel speed sensors. Those are lights for traction control and ABS.

Have you hit anything with your wheels?

Why not use that JB4 to read some actual codes?

Could definetly be the battery especially if you still have the original battery. I was getting alot of those errors before I replaced mine.

Truth be told, it could be one of many many things.
Bring it to an indy shop for help.

Thanks for the input fellas. Someone was tellin me how the steering angel sensor works with the dtc. And since my wheel was... For lack of a better term "cocked to the left"... I guess it was messing with the sensor. So after gettn an alignment and gettn the wheel straightened I turned the steering wheel all the way to one side it must've reset itself cuz the lights went away...

It was your alignment. My 335i was the same way. When the alignment is off the traction controll can't work like it's supposed to and it basically "gives up" and thats where the lights come from.
