ABS warning lights

Hi guys.

My 2011 BMW 328i, no mods, suddenly had 3 warning lights come on.. 11K Miles

1. Driving Stability! Drive Moderately
2. DBC Malfunction! Drive Carefully
3. Start Off Assistance Inactive!

And the Brake, DSC and ABS light came on the instrument panel/speedo.

Most common suspect is a faulty wheel speed sensor. Though not yet sure.

Is it still safe to use my car? Because I won't be able to bring it to a dealer till tuesday. My trips are mostly city driving, no freeways.

My cousin said not too bc the speedometer could be damaged but i drove it home and parked it. SOme people drive it for months bc the their lights are intermittent. Mine stay on.

I have full brake pressure and all gauges work but i wouldnt just to be safe
Made an appointment and have to pay $167 for bmw to diagnose tmrw then couple thousand for the unit if it is the dsc module. SO excited

Did you look up codes? Usually not the sensor as my cousin owns a shop.

Said its common but bmw doesnt want to take responsibility. Call bmw of North america and file a complaint. They will have to address it if a lot of people complain.

Do you have a warranty?
