Multiple lights just came on???

I got into my car this morning and when I got about a mile up the road a yellow brake light, and the i believe traction control light came on. (triangle with a circle arrow around it). Also when they came on my blinker will not shut off when I turn, I have to do it manually......any ideas? Speed wheel sensor? Thanks

Steering Angle sensor, is your car lowered?

Fix 1:
Disconnect battery for 10-20 mins, reconnect. Press start button once, turn your car turn steering wheel all the way to the left till it stops then all the way to the right till it stops. Turn back to center and pause. Repeat the turning of the steering wheel a second cycle. Start car and drive the car for a bit. This should recalibrate the steering angle sensor.

Fix 2:
Buy relay (part number:B61.36.6.915.327.) and replace relay with faulty relay. Instructions here:http://www.e90post.com/forums/attach...9&d=1308301433

Fix 3:

Fix 4:
Do nothing and drive the car everyday with the annoying lights.

I do not advise option 4 =). Some people have had success with at least one of the above fixes. More people have had success with option 3, but it doesn't hurt trying the first two options before opening up your steering wheel. Let me know if you have any questions.

Get your error codes checked. I believe Autozone does it for free.

Try fix 1 above without the battery disconnect. I had this problem after a body shop let my battery run down. A couple of full turns of the wheel and my problem was fixed.

Hey man thanks for that great info! I tried options 1 and 2 not luck so took it to Classic BMW they fixed it for me was the angleation sensor after all.
so option 3 was the correct one for me.

Thanks once again for all the help.
