DSC malfunction light, red car lift, brake light!! HELP

Just got something similar to this http://www.e90post.com/forums/attach...1&d=1233815862

+ service engine soon,

Alignment in the front is pretty off, not sure how it happened, and when I try to reset the brake light, the brake indicator does not let me and shows 0000 miles to replacement..
also a red lift, and brake light are on.

Any thoughts?

Brake lights just warning that you need to get your pads changed. It can't be reset fully because the brake sensors are directly connected to the brake pads.

The DSC light is a common problem on the E9X. It is due to a steering angle sensor error. There are a few fixes for this, but none easy and cheap.

But when I try to reset it it shows 000 miles, and doesnt allow me to reset it, faulty sensors perhaps?

Once you get to the wear sensors u can't reset it because the sensors aren't protected by any break pad material, replace pads and sensors and light will be able to be reset

Subscribed! This just happened to me as well. Brake pads are good bc I replaced them less than 2 months ago. Cars dash initially was lit up like a christmas tree

Based on the picture, I'd say there is a malfunction with one of the wheel speed sensors, which prevents the stability control/dynamic traction control/ABS system to function properly.

The red-car-on-lift along with the "Brake" indicator and miles at 000 means either the front or rear brakes are worn out and need replacement.
