What are these fault codes?

Recommended Posts

So yesterday while I was driving the yellow brake (!) symbol and the yellow traction control symbol lit up.

The car still drove the same so when I got home I scanned it with torque pro and there were no codes.

I then did test results and it brought up the two red codes at the bottom. I've spent alot of time on google and I'm none the wiser.

Can anyone tell me what they are?

You need a better scanner to check these fault codes Nathan. That scan result looks like a bank statement $$$$

My money on one or both of the dsc pressure sensors on the brake master cylinder. Factory tools will give you live readings and tell you if one is faulting. Only takes a little bit of variation for it to trigger those two lights.

Those two lights can mean a number of things.  Mostly all related.

ABS pump issue

Wheel speed sensor issue (most common)

Steering Angle sensor issue

 

If you are going to get another cheap scanner I would recommend something like the C110.  They are about $50USD on Amazon.
If you want help getting one let me know.

I have both Torque and a C110 and Torque misses quite a bit.  Strangely my codes look much different than yours.  I'm not even sure those are real codes.

Just had some fun with an E46.   Was a 5amp fuse under the glove box for the ABS.
